Mitsubishi Electric's space technology includes the manufacture and implementation of satellites, satellite components and ground systems. Over the past four decades, we have completed more satellite projects for communications concerns, government agencies, and other large-scale clients than any other Japanese company, making Mitsubishi Electric the leading company for space systems in Japan. We have a distinct advantage when it comes to designing, building, launching and controlling satellites, because we also excel in the solar panel, antenna, amplification, tracking, control and ground station system technologies that make satellites practical to own and operate.
As Japan's only manufacturer with integrated capabilities covering the entire satellite development process from development and design to assembly and testing, Mitsubishi Electric has played a key role in dozens of satellite programs for a variety of government agencies and communications providers both inside and outside Japan.
Mitsubishi Electric satellite platforms are supported by state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing facilities, and a highly advanced management system. As a major supplier to both domestic and international organisations, the wide range of diverse applications, including uses for communications, and Earth and space observation, continues to grow.
Mitsubishi Electric has been in the business of manufacturing satellite components for over 40 years. This long history of involvement in the industry, combined with unsurpassed technical prowess, enables the company to provide components that organisations around the world have come to know and trust for their high reliability and superior performance.
Opening up a window on the universe, Mitsubishi Electric optical and radio telescopes are at the cutting edge of worldwide space observation. Applying extensive experience and expertise in this area, the company is playing a major role in international space research projects, utilising industry-leading technologies and high-precision instruments that are contributing to further advances in human knowledge.
Mitsubishi Electric offers a variety of satellite communications solutions, including a helicopter satellite communication system, maritime antenna system and satellite news gathering (SNG) system. Utilising these solutions, we are contributing to better communications accuracy and quality, and responding to demand for faster, more sophisticated systems.
Mitsubishi Electric's Mobile Mapping System (MMS) is a set of high-accuracy GPS mobile measuring equipment that enables the efficient acquisition of remarkably accurate 3D positional information about buildings, road contours and other roadside data while the user is driving. This extremely reliable, original solution is actively being applied in public surveys and infrastructure asset management.
