What we do

A microwave humidity instrument, or ‘sounder’, for the MetOp-C weather satellite is tested in a thermal vacuum chamber at the Airbus Defence and Space site in Portsmouth.

Airbus Defence and Space teams focus on the design and manufacture of advanced satellites and systems for telecommunications, Earth observation, and navigation and science programmes. They also support the UK’s military satellite communications services to the UK armed forces, including mobile voice, video, Internet and broadcast communications. Delivered through the Skynet 5 constellation, these services also meet the needs of other military and government users like NATO.
