Business with SAC

SAC provides ample opportunities to vendors and encourages them to participate and support in payload developments and other related activities of SAC. Vendors experienced in space grade high reliability hardware development and testing, having necessary facilities and manpower skills can partner with SAC. However, SAC can extend necessary support to those, who are not experienced and equipped with space grade high reliability hardware development and testing. SAC can provide short term technical consultancy, training and technology transfer. SAC can also assist the vendor in setting-up SAC certified space grade hardware development infrastructure.

Following is the brief list of areas wherein vendors can partner with SAC:

  • RF and Electronics
    • Design and development of electronic sub-systems of Antenna, RF, Digital, Electro-optical sensor system
