Activities and Products

 

Kayser Italia is one of the companies leader in Europe for the development of electrical/electronics systems for aersopace research, and for the development of payloads and equipment for the International Space Station (ISS) and satellites.

 

The company has participated to 65 space missions with over 100 payloads, all completed with full scientific, technical, economic and programmatic success.

 

The staff is composed of 60 specialized engineers with experience in electronics, aeronautics, thermodynamics, physics, informatics, optics, molecular biology and biotecnology. The company acts as prime-contractor and sub-contractor in several programs of the European Space Agency (ESA) and Italian Space Agency (ASI).

The payload developed by Kayser Italia have been flown on the Russian capsules Bion, Foton, Progress and Soyuz, on the Space Shuttle (STS), on the Japanes HTV module, on the Chinese Shenzhou-8, on the European ATV module and on the ISS.

 

Recently, the company started working in the defense sector, with the design, development and manufacturing of on-board avionics of the NH90 helicopter.
