Juice Mission - Rosenberger Connectors on the Way into Space


On the long journey of the Juice spacecraft to Jupiter, more than 100 Rosenberger connectors of SMP, SMA and RPC-2.92 series are also on board.

The Juice spacecraft - Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (Juice) - of the European Space Agency ESA consists of various components such as thrusters, communication units, power supply, scientific measuring instruments. The Rosenberger connectors provide reliable and high-precision service in the spectrometer SWI (Sub-millimeter Wave Instrument), which investigates the atmospheric composition of Jupiter and its moons, and in the particle spectrometer PEP (Particle Environment Package), which measures neutral and charged particles in the Jupiter system.

The Juice mission aims to measure the surfaces of Jupiter's moons Ganymede, Callisto and Europa, discover water deposits beneath the surface and study the physical properties of the ice crust.
