RF Generator at the International Space Station ISS

RF Generator at the International Space Station ISS

Since autumn 2014 two barthel RF generators are used at the International Space Station (ISS). They are part of a plasma system that has been designed by the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in order to research dusty plasma.

The generator we designed according the specification and in close cooperation with the team of the Max-Planck-Institute. Special emphasis we put on reliability,  efficiency, and on low weight of the generator.
