We are very happy for having the opportunity to undertake an ESA project, called Active Magnetic Field Generation Methodologies, in collaboration with the Frederick University of Cyprus. The project kicked off in October 2020 and signals the closing of a very important product cycle, regarding EMC products.
On the one hand, Frederick University, which was established in 1965 and became one of the first private Universities in Cyprus, in 2007, holds high expertise staff with specialization in technical sectors. On the other hand, EMTech Space P.C. established in Cyprus, with focus on Electromagnetic Applications and many participations in various space related projects, starting with Multi-Magnetometer Facility, going on with Hybrid Multi-Magnetometer Facility, Suitcase Multi-Magnetometer Facility, now is completing its range of Magnetic Cleanliness Products with the Active Magnetic Field Generation Methodologies.
Magnetic cleanliness in spacecraft engineering aims the elimination of magnetic fields generated by spacecraft equipment, in order to achieve accurate measurements of space environment magnetic fields, i.e. magnetic field measurements without contribution caused by spacecraft magnetic field noise. EMTECH magnetic cleanliness Products can be used for accurate prediction/modelling of the magnetic behavior of all EUT’s separately, and calculates an overall magnetic field aggregation synthesized by the EUTs’ modelling.
regarding the PERM/DEPERM application, where such a system shall be integrated to proto-MMF, a preliminary design approach has been considered
Its value is huge, as by this project EMTech completes top of the line products, which they could even be used in university laboratories, and large satellite manufacturing companies. In this way, EMTech is holding a strong name in the market and Cyprus wins a strong place in the map of the EMCs. In the meantime, Frederick University is taking an advantage in additional feasibility, regarding innovational products. Last but not least, the University will be a valuable “tank” of upcoming scientists, which will benefit the scientific community.
It will be a matter of the study to find the most appropriate design so as to meet the PERM/DEPERM process requirements.
Mr. Stelios Tsatalas, Managing Director of EMTECH Space made the following statement:
“EMTECH Space remains highly focused on magnetic cleanliness applications. This activity is expected to enhance and complete our products and services line with useful methodologies for generation of magnetic fields. Our engineering team is looking forward to work with Frederick University and ESA to produce valuable results and improve our capabilities”
