areas of expertise


Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) ensures the compatibility of a system to operate in a specific environment that is subject to interferences caused from many sources and units operating within that same system. Avoiding fatal consequences caused due to system incompatibilities is where our EMC support can play a vital role.

areas of expertise

Systems Engineering

Systems Engineering demands our ability to step back in order to be able to consider the system and lifecycle as a whole, ensuring it achieves its original objectives. Increasingly, the complexities of space satellite programmes today demand that we have an in-depth understanding of the multiple methodologies and objectives; what orbit, what power source, what instruments, what mass. At mcg, our expertise is drawn from various disciplines, all of which work in parallel with the core engineering team to access and simulate the technical and financial feasibility of a mission.

areas of expertise

AIT and Test Support

Satellites' Assembly, Integration and Test (AIT) require numerous engineers to review space systems architecture, electricity/electronics, real-time systems, radio frequency, optical engineering, mechanical engineering and thermal engineering. Our engineering expertise is highly regarded within AIT circles.
