The two spacecraft that make up ESA's Proba-3 mission for precision formation flying in orbit are now complete.


All instruments and sensors are integrated on board, allowing them to manoeuvre each other with millimetre precision. The pair of satellites is completely wrapped in multi-layer insulation - ready for testing in simulated space conditions.

The TOPTEC team was responsible for the delivery of the opto-mechanics.
