After decades working with the world’s space manufacturers, Meggitt is one of the few companies worldwide providing equipment that functions reliably and consistently in space. Today, we enable the monitoring of virtually every parameter to provide detailed information on the condition of mission-critical equipment.

Here to help

Our systems are used throughout the project life-cycle from ground testing to earth orbit. They are recognised worldwide as benchmarks in monitoring space devices and supporting scientific research. They range from state-of-the-art sensors to control valves, ignition systems and electronic cables.

The measurement of space

For example, we design and manufacture high reliability instrumentation to monitor space vehicle propulsion systems. They measure a range of parameters including shaft displacement, relative and absolute vibration, rotational speed and dynamic pressure. They survive the harsh conditions present in a launch vehicle during lift-off and still make sensitive measurements required during flight. These sensors can withstand temperatures from -253°C to +780°C (-423°F to +1436°F), pressures up to 250 bar, and vibration up to 10,000g.

This is Pluto calling

The New Horizons probe beamed back the first close-up images of Pluto through our microwave cables. They performed perfectly even after a 10-year, three-billion-mile voyage to the outer reaches of the Solar System.
