Together with avionics and equipment design, Crisa contributes to system level studies and activities in the following areas:
- Spacecraft level tasks: electrical engineering for EADS CASA
Espacio in Ingenio (power and data handling sub-system, video chain
acquisition and processing) and SMOS (satellite EMC, equipment and
- Mars exploration: Crisa, in collaboration with Centro de
Astrobiología (INTA), has developed the REMS meteorological station for
the future NASA's Mars exploration rover called Mars Science Laboratory.
Crisa is the technical and industrial responsible for the REMS
instrument, and is responsible for REMS mission definition and assurance,
system engineering, sensors specification and follow-up, development of
the mechanical platform and development of the Instrument Control Unit.
- Experiments either self-contained or for the ISS: experiment
for the Deposition of Materials In-Orbit (flown in STS); Alpha-Magnetic
Spectrometer Cryomagnet Avionics Box.
- Data Handling Engineering: control and processing systems
based on state of the art processors and high speed communications.
- Power System Engineering, including the power system
electronics design for Earth observation missions (Astrosat platform),
scientific satellites (GOCE and LISA Pathfinder) or telecommunications platform (SmallGEO).
- Launcher Electronics Systems: VEGA Avionics Bay electrical
design and harness specification, integration and testing activities.
- Alphabus Electrical Propulsion System: support to system
engineering, specification and development of the Power Supply and
