Satellite Assembly, Integration and Test Centre (AITC)

Introduction: In any spacecraft development, be it a manned or unmanned mission, for scientific research or as a space transportation, a spacecraft with its payload must be able to withstand the rigors of the lift-off and ascent environment occur during the launch phase, and, the extreme thermal conditions and operational environment experienced by the spacecraft and its payload once it is in orbit. This include the effects of intense acoustic and vibration generated by engine ignitions during lift-off, shocks generated during separation of stages and fairing, shocks during deployment of solar panels, temperature variation between extreme hot temperature to extreme cold temperature, vacuum condition, solar radiation and many other effects experienced by the spacecraft.

Optical Calibration Laboratory

Optical Calibration Laboratory Optical Calibration Laboratory building was completely built in 10 March 2006. It was the pioneer lab in Malaysia that has capability to calibrate optical system of a satellite. This lab was fully operational in 6 April 2006 where there is a clean room located inside. It is a double storey building with control room for the clean room, dust control area, loading area in ground floor while the first floor is research office.

Ground Station

ANGKASA MISSION CONTROL FACILITY The ANGKASA mission control facility is owned and operated by ANGKASA that handles the communications for both uplink and downlink with orbiting spacecraft. It has two antenna system which are 5.0 meter antenna which can provide Tracking, Telemetry & Control (TT&C) support operating in S-band and 7.3 meter antenna for Image Receiving and Processing System (IRPS) operating in X-band.
