Smt compatible ELECTroMechanical relay for cOmpact redundancy Ring

Objective

SELECTOR contributes to the EC policy : “Reaching non-dependence in certain technologies will open new markets to our industries and will increase the overall competitiveness of the European Space sector”. It focuses on the development of innovative passive components to increase the number of freely accessible space qualified passive components. SELECTOR aims at developing Surface Mount Technology (SMT) compatible electromechanical switches for space sector high miniaturization. These devises called “Miniature Electro Mechanical Relay” (MEMR), already exist for microwave industrial ground application like Automatic Test Equipment.
SELECTOR will deliver MEMR as part of ESA portfolio European Preferred Part List (EPPL) so that this high integration, high performance passive component be available with noi restriction for the whole European industry. SELECTOR will also demonstrate a whole new approach of self-redunded microwave equipment called “Meta-equipment” based on microwave specific SMT board level assembly and MEMR components to minimize cost and improve integration. This demonstrator will address Very High Throughput Satellites (VHTS) emerging applications where the new paradigm is the introduction of digital technologies dealing with very high number of RF chains. VHTS system answers to telecommunication operator calling for optimized capital expenditure, no matter which network, ground or space, to supply their products and services. New evolution toward high RF power and high frequency capability will be implemented to open-up new sector of application within Space satellites (Navigation, earth observation), but also non space sectors.
SELECTOR value chain includes a supplier of space passive component “Radiall”, a space integrator “Thales Alenia Space”, a leader into electromagnetic design the “Universitat polytecnica of Valencia” and a center of excellence for space reliability of high complexity miniature component the “CSEM”.
