GomSpace Luxembourg s.a.r.l. and OHB have signed a contract for the Inter Satellite Link system for the ESA HERA mission to be delivered in June 2022 — the PATP (Preliminary Authority To Proceed) value is 500,000 euros.
The ESA HERA mission consists of one mother-spacecraft developed by OHB and two cubesats. GomSpace provides one of the cubesats — Juventas — as well as the Inter-Satellite Link (ISL) system between the three spacecrafts, enabling the communication between the spacecrafts as well as communication to Earth.
