Bremen, March 28, 2019. The ExoMars mission has reached its final spurt: the carrier module, which was built by OHB System in Bremen, left the company's premises late yesterday evening to undergo extensive testing in Turin (Italy) and Cannes (France). ExoMars is a joint project being pursued by ESA and the Russian space agency Roskosmos to search for traces of life on the Red Planet. The ExoMars program is divided into two missions: the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and an entry and landing module which were launched in 2016. As a subcontractor to Thales Alenia Space, OHB System AG was responsible for the TGO's core module, the largest German contribution to the first mission.

With this second ExoMars mission known as "ExoMars Rover and Surface Platform Mission" (RSP), OHB's carrier module is scheduled to transport a descent and landing module as well as a European rover to Mars in July 2020.

The rover is located inside the landing module. When the landing module lands on Mars, it will unfold, allowing the rover to leave it while the fixed station remains at the landing site. It will be carrying Russian and European experiments on board, including those contributed by OHB subsidiary AntwerpSpace. The schedule for the assembly of the carrier, which is now being readied for shipping in the integration hall in Bremen, was quite tight. "There is only one launch window every 26 months for such a mission. So, of course, we had a tight schedule, which we were able to keep exactly. Everything is going according to plan," says ExoMars carrier project manager Dr. Andreas Peukert. In the next step, the carrier module will be integrated with the landing module at Thales Alenia Space in Turin and then shipped to France (Cannes). The entire spacecraft will be tested in Cannes before being transported to the launch site in Baikonur.

„Schnelleres Wachstum mit Wasserstoff“

Mit dem Einstieg in die Wasserstoff-Technologie erschließt sich SFC Energy ein besonders dynamisches Segment. „Mittelfristig ist das Marktvolumen für Wasserstoff-Brennstoffzellen noch größer als im Direkt-Methanol-Bereich. Zivile Massenanwendungen könnten sich dabei zu einem echten Wachstumsbooster entwickeln“, ist CEO Dr. Peter Podesser überzeugt. Im Financial.de-Interview spricht der SFC-Vorstandschef u. a. über die aktuelle Euphorie für Brennstoffzellen-Aktien, die geplante Kapitalmaßnahme und das mittelfristige Umsatzziel von 100 Mio.
