Aerospace Cryogenic Systems

Pushing the envelope

In 1962, Sumitomo Heavy Industries took on the challenge of cryogenic technology in Hiratsuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture. Today, the challenge continues in space. Cooling the sensor is an effective method for increasing sensitivity to light for capturing faint light in space. Sumitomo Heavy Industries has been supplying cryogenic equipment to numerous satellites and detectors. Besides cryogenic equipment, now even peripheral technologies, such as the soil sample collection device on the asteroid explorer "Hayabusa", have demonstrated exceptional performance. With our advanced technologies, our contribution to fields such as space observation and earth observation will continue.
