Calian SED Division Plays Major Role in European Comet Mission

Calian is proud of the groundbreaking work and key role that its SED Systems Division is playing in support of the European Space Agency's Rosetta Mission.

Calian's SED Systems Division provided three deep space antenna systems to the European Space Agency located in Australia, Spain, and Argentina.

The systems form the backbone of ESA’s Deep Space Network and are used for numerous flagship science and exploration missions such as the recent Rosetta mission, which recently soft-landed its Philae probe on a comet, the first time in history that such an extraordinary feat has been achieved.
