    ExoMars is a joint exploration program between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Russian space agency Roscosmos. It is designed to study the Martian environment, atmosphère and soil, and will perhaps help discover traces of previous life on the planet. Thales Alenia Space is prime contractor for the ExoMars program, which includes two missions, in 2016 & 2018.

    ELECTRA, Satellite, satellite_communications, Thales Alenia Space has signed its first contract with OHB, at this year's Paris Air Show, to provide new-generation electronic equipment, made in Belgium, for the Electra platform. "PCU NG" a new-generation Power Coeditioning Unite the satellite's electrical core which handles the conversion and management of electrical power from the solar panels as well as battery charge and discharge management (23 kW). "DCU (Drive Control Unit)" a modular device that controls the antenna and solar array steering motors. "PPU Mk3 (Power Processing Unit). Newly qualified" this unit is compatible with all plasma (electric) thrusters now available on the market (5 kW). The PPU Mk3 controls the thrusters used for orbitl positioning and station keeping on the new generation of all-electric telecom satellites.
