At this event, which brings together numerous international companies and institutions, CESA is participating alongside other Spanish businesses and organisations in the Spanish pavilion co-ordinated by ICEX (Stand 101).

CESA, who aim to provide information on their participation in Astronomical Observation, are exhibiting a fastening structure for the hexagonal segments of the E-ELT telescope´s primary mirror (M1), for which it has carried out a detailed, conceptual design, the manufacturing, the assembly and the testing of three support prototypes for the primary mirror. Added to this structure is an EMA (Electro-mechanical actuator), for which CESA has carried out a detailed, conceptual design, the manufacturing, the assembly and the testing, with nanometric precision, of three prototypes for the purpose of the orientation and positioning of the segments.
