Since 1994, the Tesat's (quality) management system is certified to DIN EN ISO 9001. Since October 2006, we maintain a certification to the aerospace standard EN9100, which links global customers and suppliers in a continuous quality chain. This European Standard is equivalent to the American AS9100 and the Asian JISQ9100 standards.
In the continuous development of quality standards at Tesat we see the tangible benefit to get products and processes even more efficient and effective.
Tesat's measurement equipment maintenance and calibration laboratory is accredited to DIN EN ISO 17025 for selected measurements since August 2003. Therefore the standard of our calibration department corresponds with national and international guidelines. In addition to the Tesat internal use, we offer this resource as a service for external customers as well.
In space communication we pioneer with passion and strive to be the number one partner for your success. Our solutions set standards that open borders, and connect people worldwide.
Tesat understand itself as Europe's largest equipment supplier in the field of satellite communications and serves the global market with a regional emphasis on Europe, North America, and the Far East.
The market for satellite communications can be essentially divided into three segments:
The most important application for commercial satellite communication is the distribution of TV channels that are received in tens of millions of households via satellite system operators, either directly or through cable networks. They allow direct transfers of news and sports programs. But also the development of devices for data and video communications has changed the applications of communications satellites in different market segments significantly.
The ongoing conflict and extreme violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is fueled in part by the trade of "conflict minerals", which are defined as tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold as well as any of their derivatives (3TG).
Since Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010, every company traded on American stock exchanges has been required to look into the origin of conflict minerals in their supply chains and report on the reasonable inquiry and due diligence in order to determine whether their purchases supported armed groups in the DRC and adjoining countries.
Consequently the U.S. law mentioned above does not only impact U.S. companies but a much larger number of companies worldwide.
