With so much space enthusiasm in Helsinki right now, the place to be is the ESA Space Hack 2017 event! Lunar computer electrical model (EL) in development Main event hall
OAC takes part of the ESA Space Hack event in Helsinki this weekend. Meet us there and see how we build the best computing platform for lunar surface missions!
The OAC Computer, Radio and Battery unit is capable of operating over the full lunar night (375 hours without solar irradiation), without a need for hybernation mode. This is possible, with the help of OAC developed thermal design, combining structural rigidity and delicate thermal control of the system. Thermal Analysis of the OAC unit
The technology for lunar missions have existed since the 1960s. OAC is using high-quality commercial-of-the-shelf (COTS) components to build affordable, high-performance space systems. The OAC Computer, Radio and Battery unit is capable of operating over the full lunar night, without a need for hybernation mode. OAC Unit
OAC contributed to the ESA ESTEC Deep Space Gateway and Lunar Exploration -industry days on 18th and 19th SEP 2017. It’s great to see that this time the Europeans are leading the path for permanent lunar base. Inside super cool ESA rover lab!
