Since 1965, American Aerospace Controls has been manufacturing high reliability AC &DC current, voltage and frequency sensors, transducers and detectors. With an emphasis on engineering solutions and customer support, AAC has developed long-term relationships with some of the largest aerospace, defense, transit and industrial companies around the globe.
AAC sensors have been used on numerous manned and unmanned spacecraft, satellite, rocket and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) programs. AAC has been involved with space flight applications since the mid-1960s. AAC’s extensive knowledge and decades of experience in designing and manufacturing transducers and detectors capable of providing high reliability in harsh remote environments has been proved over and over again.
AAC engineers worked extensively with Rockwell to design and develop custom sensors for the Space Transportation System (Shuttle). Subsequently, Lockheed called upon AAC to create components for the Hubble Space Telescope. While the original design requirements were for seven years shelf life and five years operational, the AAC sensors achieved 10 years shelf life and over 26 years (so far) on orbit with no failures.
More recently, AAC provides current sensors to SABCA. These sensors are integrated with the Thrust Vectoring Control System (TVCS) for all three stages of the Vega, the Arianespace intermediate-lift launch system.
AAC is trusted by all the major spacecraft manufacturers and integrators including NASA, Lockheed-Martin, Honeywell, Northrop-Grumman and Boeing. In fact, we have been awarded the Boeing Supplier PerformanceExcellence Award in every year since 2010.
Manufacturer of AC & DC current, voltage, power & frequency transducers.
