Assembly on the ISS space station

Successful assembly of our re-fill-vessel on the ISS space station

Once again, BF Group has successfully implemented a project for the international space station ISS.

In close cooperation with RWTH Aachen University, a pressure vessel for the ISS was built, subjected to various tests and delivered for installation in the module.

On 02.12.2019 the new UTTPS module was successfully mounted to the AMS (Alpha-Magnet-Spectrometer for the investigation of cosmic radiation) in an outboard mission in space. The first tests showed that the AMS is fully functional.

According to Prof. em. Dr. Klaus Lübelsmeyer, this is a great success for all involved.
