2022-11-02 AAC Clyde Space AB (publ)
On Friday November 4, the Swedish spacecraft MATS, carrying AAC Clyde Space solutions, is planned to launch onboard a Rocket Lab Electron launch vehicle from the Mhia Peninsula, New Zealand.

MATS is a Swedish scientific satellite mission which will use optical measurements techniques to investigate atmospheric waves in the mesosphere with the aim to get a better understanding of global wind patterns and temperatures as well as the human impact on the global climate. The mission will allow scientists to address a wide range of questions about this remote part of the atmosphere, and to provide the first global map of the properties of atmospheric waves in all spatial dimensions.

The MATS satellite including its scientific instrument was financed by the Swedish state through the National Space Agency. The MATS scientific instruments, which were developed by AAC Omnisys, part of the AAC Clyde Space group, under the leadership of Department of Meteorology (MISU) at Stockholm University, and in collaboration with Department of Earth and Space Sciences at Chalmers, Space and Plasma Physics Group at KTH.

AAC Clyde Space also built STARBUCK-MINI - an advanced power management and system, Sirius - a high-performance data handling subsystem and a high-power generation custom built solar panel.
