mu Space and Advance Technology Company Limited is an aerospace manufacturer in Southeast Asia that also produces aerospace components and provides satellite communication services. The company develops satellites for communication purposes and is almost entirely made by professional in-house engineers.
From the 9th-11th of March 2022, mu Space tested their satellite parts with Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA), which is currently open for testing materials that are prepared to be delivered. With international standard certification, this is a certified test of the first communication satellite components developed and manufactured by mu Space Corp, additionally also the first to be tested by a Thai Space Agency and Space Research organization.
mu Space established Factory 1 to carry out the design, development, and manufacturing process of various components. The facility is also used to complete the assembly of small satellites by a team of expert engineers within the company. The satellite component that mu Space tested with GISTDA is the "Reaction Wheel", a part that helps stabilize and move the satellite in microgravity.
An important and necessary test is the "Vibration Test" as parts may break and cause further damage to other components of the satellite if unable to withstand the inevitable vibrations caused by launching the component into the atmosphere. mu Space's satellite passed the test, with SSTL/Airbus certification and AS9100 D by GISTDA.
GISTDA is equipped with facilities, tools, and testing experts who can provide accurate plus truthful results in accordance with international standards. This test allows mu Space's products and satellite components to be launched into the atmosphere, ultimately providing for a high-quality product that can be trusted by customers.
In addition, the advancement of space technology development is another important factor in helping to build a foundation for Southeast Asia's readiness to enter the world-class space technology market.
mu Space Corp, a satellite manufacturer, aims to push the space technology industry to the maximum in order to raise the Southeast Asian economy in various fields as well as create job opportunities for people in this region.
