For more than 40 years, AAC’s highly rugged and reliable AC and DC current, voltage, frequency and power sensors have been integrated into numerous manned and unmanned spacecraft, satellite, rocket and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) programs.
The company’s extensive experience with the design and manufacture of sensors capable of providing absolute reliability in harsh remote environments is born out of its inclusion in space programs for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) and Rockwell International.
Applications have traditionally ranged from onboard spacecraft current monitoring, with multiple sensors installed within all Space Shuttles in NASA’s Space Transportation System program as well as sensors aboard the Hubble Space Telescope, to the current monitoring of rocket launch vehicles, such as the Lockheed Martin Space Systems Titan IV, used to lift satellites into orbit. Current space customers include Lockheed Martin, SABCA, Allied Signal Aerospace Canada, and Honeywell.
