Bradford has signed the contract with Astrium-Stevenage for delivery of 5 Pressure Transducers
The pressure transducers are going to be used for high pressure and low pressure monitoring of the RCS system during its four year lifetime. The RCS for EarthCare is a Semi-Regulated system that will operate in regulated mode during initial phase of the mission and switch to simple blowdown mode towards the EOL.
