Hera will go alongside Nasaâ????s DART spacecraft, in what will be humankindâ????s first probe to rendezvous with a binary asteroid system called Didymos

Irish company InnaLabs is part of a consortium that has been awarded a â??¬129.4 million contract to launch a satellite to support deep-space navigation.

Named after the Greek goddess of marriage, the European Space Agencyâ????s Hera will go alongside Nasaâ????s Double Asteroid Redirect (DART) spacecraft, in what will be humankindâ????s first probe to rendezvous with a binary asteroid system called Didymos.

First, Nasa will crash its DART spacecraft into the smaller asteroid – known as Didymoon – after blasting off next year. Hera will follow in a later mission launching in October 2024 to map the resulting impact crater and measure the asteroidâ????s mass.

Hera will carry two miniature satellites onboard that will be able to fly close to the asteroidâ????s surface to carry out scientific studies, before touching down to carry out a post-impact survey.

InnaLabs, a Dublin-based developer and manufacturer of high-performance inertial sensors and systems for use in space, is part of the winning consortium chosen by the European Space Agency (THAT) for the Hera mission. Rams its product-NS, a high-performance gyroscope system intended for space applications, will form an integral part of the mission, which is led by German satellite manufacturer OHB.

InnaLabs chief executive John Oâ????Leary said the inclusion of its technology in the mission was â????an extremely proud momentâ???? for the team.

While it might seem at first glance a little unusual that Irish companies are working with the space agency, it is anything but. Since 2000, more than 80 Irish firms, including the likes of Arralis, Pilot Photonics, Radisens Diagnostics and Skytek, have secured ESA contracts exceeding â??¬80 million in value.
