Michigan Aerospace Corporation Instrument Headed for International Space Station - Will Help Global Climate Modeling

Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC), an advanced engineering and products company, today announced the successful delivery of a precision optical system which will be sent to the International Space Station (ISS) via a SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle in mid-September 2014. The optical system is part of the Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) developed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Mounted externally on the space station’s Japanese Experiment Module, CATS uses a Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) system to measure the location, composition and distribution of pollution, dust, smoke, aerosols and other particulates that impact global climate.

Michigan Aerospace Corporation Announces NASA Award For Detecting Icing Conditions

Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC), an advanced R&D and products company, today announced that it has begun work on a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract with NASA’s Langley Research Center. The contract, “RIDES: Raman Icing Detection System,” is to extend MAC’s present aircraft-based optical air-data system technology, which uses ultraviolet laser light to measure air speed, direction, temperature and density, to also detect conditions aloft when ice is likely to form, enabling a multi-hazard sensing capability.
