Hungarian companies are delivering hardware and software for the European Space Agency's fast-class mission to intercept a comet that is just starting its journey into the inner solar system, according to azuzlet.hu.

The Eötvös Loránd Research Network (ELKH) Research Center for Astronomy and Earth Sciences is coordinating the development of the Digital Processing Module of the camera that will be used on the ESA's Comet Interceptor mission. Hardware for the device is being developed by REED and the software by SGF, both Hungarian companies.

"The consortium of scientific and industrial partners well demonstrates the power of such synergic collaboration that could play a significant role in space projects at an international level," ELKH said. The Comet Interceptor space probe is slated to launch in 2029.
