AAC Clyde Space is at the forefront of the rapidly growing and revolutionary market for small satellites, offering turnkey solutions and services from mission design to on-orbit operations. This includes reliable customisable satellite platforms in the range of 1–50kg and a full range of subsystems for cube and small satellites.
In this video, AAC Clyde Space chief executive officer Luis Gomes is interviewed alongside partners Greg Flessate from ORBCOMM and Christer Fuglesang from Saab. AAC, ORBCOMM and Saab recently entered into a collaboration to develop the next generation of space-based VHF Data Exchange System (VDES), marking the beginning of a new era in maritime communications. The satellite, manufactured by AAC Clyde Space, will carry a VDES payload from Saab for two-way communication between the satellite and the ground. ORBCOMM will integrate the data in its distribution centre for maritime communications.
