Advancing Capabilities in All Regions of Space

Space is no longer the sole remit of national governments. The potential of space exploration has been embraced by companies throughout the private sector, all of which are contributing to innovations in the growing area of “New Space.”

Expanded ways of thinking about space electronics have encouraged a deconstruction of previous methodologies, helping to push technology solutions beyond previous capabilities to create a new outlook on space electronics. With increasing funding and decreasing costs, the space industry is booming with opportunity.

Optimized payload and launch technologies are as critical to today’s space exploration as the innovations in satellite, spacecraft and stations being put into orbit. And forward-looking expansions into colonized habitats, deep space exploration and reusable technologies will continue to fuel the growth in space technologies.

Aitech applies our four decades of experience to developing reliable and affordable space electronic technologies for all levels of orbit, across all mission platforms.

Space Launch

New-Gen Space Electronics

To overcome the rigors of launch, the harsh space environment and cost parameters, Aitech integrates COTS-based products and systems into our next generation of space technologies. COTS hardware enables satellite and space program developers the ability to meet aggressive schedules using proven, reliable, cost-effective embedded designs that mitigate program and mission risks throughout the lifecycle of any satellite, spacecraft or in-orbit structure..

Space Satellite

The increasing number of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies being implemented into space missions is supported by the Space Digital Backbone (DBB) that provides a unified, flexible and scalable communication infrastructure across space electronics.

This DBB is enhanced by two specific areas; Ethernet-enabled communication as well as component qualification based on the orbit and the mission criticality. It has set the stage for even more evolutionary space opportunities.


Deployable, Reliable and Cost-Effective Space Systems

Ruggedizing less expensive, yet more leading-edge, commercial, industrial and automotive components for space has proven a successful way of handling radiation in space applications. With large volume production and very low failure rates, COTS components are viable alternatives to more expensive, proprietary components considered for space applications.

With the implementation of Aitech’s COTS-based Digital Backbone, space electronics in all orbits—LEO, NEO, GEO, and Deep Space—no longer struggle with slow, cumbersome communications.

It allows space electronics to operate throughout the universe by removing the connectivity and computing limitations as well as the associated performance bottlenecks that have forced space-grade, radiation-tolerant electronics to lag several generations behind similar systems on Earth in terms of technology advancement, adoption of modernized scalable architectures and open standards.

Enhancing Low-Earth and Near-Earth Orbit Electronics

The future of the space industry is predicted to have a large majority of low-earth orbit (LEO) and near-earth orbit (NEO) space electronics, with increasing demands for faster processing, early delivery and high volumes.

The range of satellite technologies being developed to enhance communication on earth and in orbit is vast, from earth observation, GPS navigation and cellular connectivity to scientific research and remote sensing, with new opportunities continually being identified.

COTS hardware in a Digital Backbone architecture enables satellite providers the ability to meet aggressive schedules using proven, reliable embedded designs to mitigate program and mission risks throughout the lifecycle space program.

Exploring GEO and Deep Space


Discovering the potential of space regions beyond lower orbits is rooted in the space industry’s ability to see beyond what is in front of them. Current exploratory missions will pave the way for even deeper space pursuits.

As we move towards lunar gateways that will serve as stopping points towards travel to Mars as well as creating livable habitats where human life can exist on planets other than earth, we are at the dawn of the next era of space travel.

Aitech continuously works to build out integrated space technologies for geostationary (GEO) and deep space orbits to help enable more long-term, evolutionary and life-sustaining missions.

Tomorrow’s Technologies

Growing sectors in space technologies have led to the expansion of what’s possible in space. As developments continue to provide more sustainable space habitats, opportunities for space tourism, reusable platforms and more, Aitech will be there, every step of the way.

As the space industry and the opportunities it presents
continues to grow, Aitech’s space support will continue to grow

one mission at a time.
