The Purpose of AISTECH Is to Set up a Nanosatellite Network that Will Help Organisers Improve Their Decision Making Process
Focus is on three business areas: Bidirectional Communication, Multispectral Imaging from space and Aviation Tracking and Surveillance.
GomSpace is providing flight-proven platforms, subsystems and some payloads for the AISTECH constellation. By working together, AISTECH will develop and integrate a constellation one of a kind. Having satellites that can track airplanes, communicate with assets and take multispectral pictures. Turning all this data into valuable information, AISTECH will be able to help customers in their decision-making process.
In September 2017, GomSpace and AISTECH signed a framework delivery agreement for the supply of up to 100 Nanosatellite platforms. AISTECH plans to procure standard platforms of different sizes that will be used to build their upcoming multipurpose constellation by 2022. The Agreement will be executed in the form of batch orders with delivery of several platforms at a time.
AISTECH contracted their first spacecraft platform with GomSpace in October 2016, which is at present fully integrated and ready to undergo final functional and environmental testing. The launch service of this first satellite is already contracted and has an expected date in the first quarter of 2018.
“We choose GomSpace because of their experience and expertise in developing space systems solutions. It is important to us to choose a partner with documented flight heritage, and we feel confident that GomSpace will be a qualified partner in accomplishing our mission.”
