Ultrasound for space offers remote diagnosis to patients on Earth

Radiologists are investigating people’s medical conditions and pregnancies remotely thanks to an ESA-backed robotic technology. The set-up enables medics to care for some patients at a distance during the coronavirus pandemic. The system is already being used by rural hospitals, care homes and prisons across Europe and in Canada to investigate cardiac, abdominal, pelvic and urinary tract conditions.

Game changing device for spacecraft thermal control on the horizon

The new Airbus Defence and Space (Airbus DS) Eurostar Neo satellite product line offers one of the largest communications payload capacity on the world market. The amount of thermal dissipation created by such large communication payloads requires innovative thermal control solutions, such as the East-West-Radiator system (EWRs). The Eurostar Neo EWRs will be based on a revolutionary EHD pump developed by APR Technologies (Sweden), under the technical lead of Airbus DS, in the frame of ESA’s Neosat Partnership Project.
