Montena congratulates the ROSETTA team for successfully waking up of his satellite after its long hibernation of two and a half years. We are especially proud because our company has manufactured, in collaboration with the Universities of Berne (Switzerland) and of Braunschweig (Germany), electronics for this satellite, for the COPS (Comet Pressure Sensor) and for the data processing unit (DPU) controlling the three instruments: COPS, DFMS (Double Focussed Mass Spectrometer) and RTOF (Reflectron Time Of Flight) spectrometer.

Under the supervision of Prof. Kathrin Altwegg, the scientists of the University of Berne will start to gather data with our electronics this spring.

Within the framework of a fruitful collaboration with the University of Berne, montena is currently designing very fast high voltage pulsers and manufacturing the electronics for the mass spectrometers which will land on the moon with the Luna-Resurs and the Luna-Glob missions.
