Satellite subsystems mainly for advanced missions in the range up to 150kg.

Data handling systems

ÅAC Microtec has a unified and modularized architecture for data handling systems for both Cubesats and small satellites. The data handling components are designed with the Cubesat form factor, power foot prints, data bus interfaces in mind, but also with performance specifications that make them attractive for advanced small satellites missions in mass ranges beyond that of Cubesats.

ÅAC Microtec’s data handling products have a strong heritage of supporting state of the art technologies such as space plug-and-play and the SpaceWire data bus. ÅAC Microtec has data handling systems flying on satellites such as TechEdSat-1 and Risesat and are currently designing the data handling systems for the SPARC-1 and MATS missions.

ÅAC Microtec is able to provide complete data handling systems as subcontractor to the prime, as well as supply data handling products to the designers of data handling systems.

Electrical power systems

ÅAC Microtec has designed electrical power systems for a number of satellites such as TechEdSat-1, TechEdSat-3P, QuadSat and Risesat.

The electrical power systems are built around ÅAC Microtec’s modular power management unit design that can easily be combined and customized to fit the varying needs of different spacecraft. Power generation and storage equipment (solar arrays and batteries) are provided by established suppliers.

ÅAC Microtec is able to supply complete electrical power systems as subcontractor to the prime, or to provide power management products to the designers of electrical power systems.
