Satellites & CubeSats

Connectors and Hardware in orbit

Leaving the planet

To survive the rigours of the launch process and life in space, connectors for satellites have to handle extremes of temperature, intense shock and vibration. Harwin products are now being designed into major projects with European and American space agencies and satellite manufacturers. Harwin is also a key partner and sponsor of the ESMO (European Student Moon Orbiter) programme.
