ÅAC Microtec is a research and development heavy small-medium enterprise registered in Uppsala, Sweden. ÅAC employs 30 persons in Sweden and is manufacturing microsystems for space, defense, and industrial applications. In addition, ÅAC is producing nano- and microsatellites. ÅAC has been active in space since its start in 2005 and was before becoming incorporated a research department for 10 years at Uppsala University.
Within the SEAM project, ÅAC is developing a coupled solution for mass-memory and telemetry encoding. Combining in one module high-level functions for storing the data produced onboard with hardware for telemetry and telecommand encoding opens new opportunities for distributed design of nanosatellite onboard systems.
