On Board Computers

RUAG Space computers have monitored and controlled many hundreds of satellites and launchers for over forty years. RUAG Space has supplied the guidance and control computers for all current Ariane and Vega launchers, as well as on-board computers for more than 135 satellites and space probes utilised in telecommunications, scientific, and earth observation missions. ...

RUAG Space develops high performance fault-tolerant On Board Computers used in space applications. RUAG Space computers reliably monitor and control various subsystems on board satellites. They prepare data for transmission to Earth and execute commands issued to the satellite from the ground. They control satellites’ on-board power distribution, temperatures, critical actions such as the pyrotechnic release of locking mechanisms and thruster operations.
