The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global satellite production in an unprecedented way. Many typical satellite industry manufacturing processes came to a halt when staff lockdowns and social distancing measures had to be employed. Recovery is slowly underway, but the effect of the impact is far from over.
The industry is now looking for new ways of making satellite production more resilient towards the effects of the pandemic and other, unforeseen future events. Particularly with regards to test and measurement, new technologies and solutions offer manufacturers the opportunity to remain productive and operational while respecting social-distancing measures. Much of the equipment used to test satellite electronics can be operated remotely, and test procedures can be created, automated and controlled by the same engineers from their homes.
This webinar from Rohde & Schwarz provides an overview on related test and measurement solutions and explains how engineers can control test equipment remotely to continue producing while respecting social-distancing.
