Space-based Astronomy

Technologies for space missions and ground-based astronomy demand the utmost opto-mechanical precision and stability. TNO delivers breakthrough opto-mechanical technologies that contribute to finding answers to the 'Cosmic Vision' questions. TNO's multi-disciplinary design process means that our instruments can reflect extreme specifications imposed by hostile operating environments and ultra-high accuracy and stability.
