HPS awarded ESA contract for radiation protection study

August 2014

HPS has been awarded an ESA contract for the developement of a lightweight radiation proctection system for space applications.

The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test novel multi-layered shielding materials for protection of spacecraft electronics or other sensitive hardware. This technology shall offer improved shielding effectiveness compared to an equivalent
shielding mass of aluminium, for several mission scenarios.

Partners of HPS are Kayser-Threde and Fraunhofer Institut INT.
