WTW Anlagenbau GmbH supplies another 20ft control room with an integrated lifting platform for a 1.6 ton telescope.
During the FAT (Factory Acceptance Test), among other things, the reproducible positioning of the lifting platform was tested using a high-precision laser measuring system. It was found that the accuracy when repeatedly approaching the upper end position is better than 0.002° and the height deviation is less than 0.1mm.
The weight of the telescope was simulated with a filled water tank.

“We would like to give a shoutout to our newest Gold Sponsor @wtw_antennas !
With their LSC20 tracking antenna we are able to have excellent telemetry reception of our experimental sounding rocket launches across the entire mission profiles.
The antenna with integrated low noise amplifier automatically tracks the GPS position it receives from our flight computer. It also includes a high-resolution Zoom-Camera as a bonus!
We tested it during the EX-1B launch in May and got 100% coverage over the flight profile. No telemetry packet was lost. Thanks to WTW for lending us the antenna and supporting us technically, as well as organisationally!
We look forward to further collaboration with such an amazing supporter!🚀
