International Space Station

When MDA wanted to re-imagine a new approach to low-cost, weight-optimized space-based Synthetic Aperture Radars, they partnered with Sanmina’s Optical and Microelectronic Division to define, design and build a disruptive new Transmit/Receive Module (TRM) design. Providing a broad range of design, prototype and NPI services, Sanmina provided TRMs to MDA, enabling MDA engineers to successfully image the International Space Station (ISS), travelling at 7.5 km/s, at a distance of 343 kilometers.
