AAC Clyde Space

AAC Clyde Space specialises in small satellite technologies and services that enable businesses, governments, and educational organisations to access high-quality, timely data from space. This data has a vast range of applications, from weather forecasting to precision farming to environmental monitoring, and is essential to improving our quality of life on Earth.

Our growing capabilities bring together three divisions:

Space Data as a Service – delivering data from space directly to customers

Space missions – turnkey solutions that empower customers to streamline their space missions

Space products and components – a full range of off-the-shelf and tailor-made subsystems, components and sensors

AAC Clyde Space have been operating for over 15 years and aim to become a world leader in commercial small satellites and services from space. Satellites are one of the most vital tools to better understand our planet and by applying advances in technology to tackle global challenges we are bringing space down to earth, from the ability to monitor extreme weather events in real-time to looking for trends in changes to key climate change indicators such as the health of the ocean to monitoring size of the polar ice caps.

Some of our clients include Horizon Technologies, Orbcomm, NSLComm, OHB Sweden, Intuitive Machines, Orbital Micro Systems, the United States Airforce Academy, UK Space Agency, European Space Agency and NASA.
