Leading New Space company AAC Clyde Space has won an order for a power subsystem to be utilised in a new type of mission. The order is valued at €0.5 million (approx. SEK 5.3 million), and follows an order received in 2019. The power subsystem is planned to be delivered during the fourth quarter 2022.
The power system will be used by a far eastern company in their demonstration version for a new type of regular space flight service. In parallel to demonstrating its capabilities, the mission will also carry third-party payloads. If the mission is successful, the customer plans to continue with further space flights, ultimately establishing a regular service.
"We are very proud to be part of this mission, that aims to pave the way for a new type of space missions. That our power system has been selected for this challenging mission, shines the light on how advanced and robust our small satellite technology has become in recent years," says AAC Clyde Space's CEO Luis Gomes.
AAC Clyde Space's portfolio of power subsystems includes some of the most diverse and advanced range of products in the market. It covers products addressing the needs of the cubesat and nanosat markets as well as larger spacecraft operating in LEO (low Earth orbit).
