August 2019 - ECM delivered to Brookhaven National Lab 2016/2017 24 rafts with a flatness of only 1 µm and ultra precise interfaces for the intergartion of the CCD sensors supplied by e2v UK. The rougly 200 CCDs has also HB-Cesic sensor packages with HB-Cesic threads to keep the system as much as possible a-thermal at cryogenic temperatures.
Now BNL completed the integration and tests of all the 21 rafts and the first HB-Cesic raft fully equiped with nine CCD sensors is under integration to the HB-Cesic Camera Grid at SLAC, Stanford.More information

28.06.2018 - Only 6 month after the delivery of the first two flight models another three Flight models were delivered to OHB Bremen. The last tow FMs will be delieverd to OHB in November 2018.
20.10.2017 - The first two fligth models passed all acceptance test and were delivered to OHB System Bremen in December 2017.
18.05.2017 - The fully qualified ceramic star tracker bracker for the MTG mission is delivered to OHB for platform tests.
10.03.2017 - The fully ceramic camera structure for the LSST telescope passed successful, the acceptance review in Germany prior to shipment to Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC).
Januar 2016 - ECM signed with Thales Alenia Space the contract for the delivery of the next focal plane made out of Cesic for a earth observation satellite. ECM delivered in the past already serveral similar focal planes including the sensor packages out of Cesic.
December 2015 - ECM signed with Airbus DS the contract for the delivery of 8 primary mirrors for the airborne RECO NG system. Already between 2009 and 2010 ECM delivered 21 primary mirrors for the RECO NG system of AIRBUS DS, so this current order is a full recurring version of these primary mirrors.
May 2014 - ECM awarded a contract from OHB for the fabrication of 7 Fligth Models including one STM Model of Start Trecker Assembly Brackets for ESAs MTG Mission. This Project requieres an extreme thermo-eleastical stability of the bracket, which can not be achieved with metals like aluminum.
December 2013 - ECM received the contract from Thales Alenia Space, Cannes the contract for two more focal plane structures to be integrated in French EO satellites.
July 2012 – We are proud to announce that we have reached to a next flight heritage of a Cesic® structure
which is used inside the TET- 1 microsatellite. This satellite was launched together with 4 others
satellite from Baikonur site on 22nd July 2012 with a Soyuz Fregat launcher.
With TET-1 also space probes Kanopus-B, BKA, MKA-FKI, ADS-1 were launched.
