Superior subsystems and components

ÅAC Microtec has a rare ability to produce small, unique and purpose built satellites as well as advanced sub-systems and components. ÅAC has a strong competitive advantage because we operate in the high-end segment of the small satellite market, we have a complete offering from components to satellites, and that the our products are ITAR free.

Most of the products in the rapid integration architecture (RIA) product portfolio are flight proven, an important quality mark in the space business.  Our new product portfolio Sirius, which are built on heritage from the RIA family, are already being designed into spacecraft systems for a 6U CubeSat, a 40 kg micro satellite, and the Ariane 5 launch vehicle.

Our business concept is to address customer needs with ready-made solutions for generic problems. We do this by offering standardized, compact and rugged data handling and power management components and integrated solutions of various level of complexity built upon these products to operators and integrators of advanced missions on small satellites.

Our integrated solution reduces the required efforts for integration for the customer and the state of the art data handling and power management products ensure a reliable operation of our customers’ satellites.

Engineering and flight models

ÅAC Microtec’s products are available as engineering model (EM) and flight model (FM). The engineering model is similar to the flight model in function, but is not as thoroughly tested and documented in production. The EM comes without coating, and the rad tolerant functionality can be shut off. The flight model is thoroughly tested and has radiation protection; EDAC, Parity, Scrubber and TMR (triple mode redundancy).

We deliver value – on time

Our production capacity supports large satellite constellation volumes. Standard products can be delivered with a short delivery time. Typical delivery time for engineering models is 6 to 10 weeks, and for flight models 3 to 6 months. ÅAC also offer customized product designed and built after customer requirements.

ÅAC Microtec is dedicated to delivering customer data with high confidence and mission reliability. Our fault tolerant systems provide affordable performance with high mission assurance for nano- and microsatellites. ÅAC’s satellite solutions are the customer’s choice to pair with high-end expensive payloads.

Integration

ÅAC Microtec is currently vertically integrated in the respect that we bring product offerings to the market at all tier levels. At all levels – sub-system, system and bus – we offer unique capabilities by combining products, of internal design or external, and engineering them to a working whole. We can offer solutions to engineering problems that reduce the need for such work by the customer.
