…we are in no way – even if you could lose a bit traction given the fact that some of our electroforming components recently are traveling in Space. These cold shields have been integrated by one of our long term customers in 6 infrared detectors which in turn are an elementary part of the Sentinel-3A. This “high tech Ocean Guardian” is part of the European Commission and the European Space Agency ESA Copernicus program. Next to the ocean observing this unit has the task to monitor global land surfaces. This will help to better understand the effects of global climate change.

That we are all very proud to be a – albeit small – part of this important European mission, we do not want to keep silent at this point. Finally it is a nice confirmation that high tech above all made by Sigrist even in space is successful.
