Project Description

Laser Pointer

Synopta GmbH in the municaplity of Eggersriet, St Gallen, is developing the CPA 70 device for space flight and telecommunications. This is a Coarse Pointing Assembly with a beam diameter of 70 mm, for transmitting information via a laser beam. MAM has been fortunate to provide dynamic finite element verification of this high-tech apparatus. Dynamic verification is necessary, because this element, which is integrated into the satellite, is subjected to enormous shocks during the rocket launch.
