ROLE IN ORU-BOAS:
SENER is the project coordinator and is responsible for the overall management, and coordination of the different activities, and quality assurance aspects that need to be centralized and synchronized. Within the project, SENER will guarantee that the proposed ORU-BOAS concept can be integrated by specific payloads, the deorbiting one, which will be used as input for the ORU-BOAS platform definition and the definition of the interface between the ORU-BOAS and the payload. To do so, SENER will provide the study adaptation of the CETUS deorbiting payload and a prototype to check the compatibility with the ORU interface.
