The space division of Orbital Critical Systems has a multidisciplinary team with all the technical training required for the full development of embedded systems in space platforms, according to ECSS regulation, required by the European Space Agency (ESA). The know-how of the company covers the whole range of capabilities from design and development of electronics and embedded software, to verification and validation activities (ISVV).

Orbital Critical Systems is a highly reliable partner with unique capabilities in:

  • Development of complex FPGA firmware.
  • Experience in environments with LEON processor.
  • Experience in application software development and BSPs in multiple RTOSs.
  • Design and development in the electronic control of CCDs and microbolometers.
  • Design and development of flight electronics.
  • Ground Support Equipment. EGSE.
