​NTU Singapore, Thales and Thales Alenia Space extend their collaboration in Small Satellites


Nanyang Technological University Singapore, Thales in Singapore and Thales Alenia Space, Joint Venture between Thales (67%) and Leonardo (33 %), have signed the extension agreement for the Smart Small Satellite Systems Thales in NTU (S4TIN) joint laboratory. The laboratory was originally signed among the three partners in October 2014, and supported by EDB, the Economic Development Board of Singapore.

With the extension the three partners have agreed to explore unpaved paths, developing the technological enablers of tomorrow - small satellite missions leveraging in the activities already engaged on new materials and devices, manufacturing processes and intelligent control.

S4TIN will also aim to enlarge the areas of cooperation including the novel field of research on geophysics and atmospheric science.
