September 30, 2019 - The German Aerospace Center’s (DLR) Earth Sensing Imaging Spectrometer (DESIS-30) on board Teledyne Brown Engineering’s Multi User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) platform on the International Space Station (ISS) has reached Full Operational Capability (FOC). DESIS-30, the result of a collaboration between Teledyne Brown Engineering and the German Aerospace Center, has been operational and collecting 10 nm spectral resolution hyperspectral imagery since late 2018. The validation of the instrument calibration and performance has been completed and DESIS-30 is now able to process and deliver high-quality 2.55 nm hyperspectral imagery.

July 23, 2019 – TBE delivered one of its latest Space Station experiments, the Ring Sheared Drop (RSD), to NASA. RSD will study the formation of the amyloid fibrils that are found in the brain tissues of patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. On Earth, container walls and heat convection affect the formation of the fibrils. Scientists want to run the experiments in microgravity where there is no heat driven convection and where liquids form into a spherical drop, thus eliminating the need for a container. For this experiment, Teledyne Brown Engineering designed the hardware from initial concept, fabricated and assembled the flight hardware, and created the software that allows the hardware to be controlled from the ground.
July 19, 2019 – Dr. Erek Withee is joining Teledyne Brown Engineering as its Chief Engineer, and will work from the company’s headquarters in Huntsville, Alabama. In this position, Dr. Withee will be the engineering leader for Teledyne Brown Engineering, and assume responsibility for engineering practices and the coordination of the engineering workforce to meet program goals across the company.
