Satellite business is recession proof thanks to exports

The scientists and engineers at Astrium, in Anchorage Park, Hilsea, are responsible to developing and building the ‘brains’ for every satellite.  Called the payload, it is the part that records data, takes pictures, beams television, broadband or radio signals back to Earth.  The payload was crated up and sent on its way to Toulouse in France, where it will be assembled, tested, shipped to French Guyana, tested again, and then launched into space.  This one will be providing people in the Far East with a television service similar to Sky in the UK.  Richard Peckham, strategy and business development director for Astrium in the UK, said so far the firm had avoided any effect from the recession.
