Expertise and capability

Space sector capabilities

Meccanica first became involved in the Space industry by manufacturing components for Australia's Federation Satellite (FedSat), which was launched in 2002. Meccanica has been a core supplier to the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics for almost 50 years, and provided the lead mechanical engineer in developing Australia’s largest thermal vacuum system, which has since been used for the testing and validation of a number of nanosatellite platforms. Meccanica undertakes design, manufacturing, assembly and testing of mechanisms that can be adapted to space use. This includes the completion of a space tribology course (bearing technology) conducted by EADS Astrium.
