Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Launches Space & Sensing Systems Division

Sponsored by Businesswire

Electric US, Inc.
has launched a Space & Sensing Systems division at
its Cypress, CA headquarters. The new division will sell satellite
on-board equipment, including solar array panels, lithium-ion batteries,
and RF equipment. The division will also sell the company’s Mobile
Mapping System (MMS) and centimeter-level high-accuracy positioning
receiver (AQLOC). MMS uses car-mounted GPS antennas, laser scanners and
cameras to gather 3D positioning data for road assets with high-level
accuracy, creating the comprehensive 3D maps needed to support
autonomous driving.

The satellite and MMS equipment will be manufactured by the company’s
ultimate parent corporation in Japan, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation is a leading manufacturer contributing
to space research and development since the 1960s, having participated
in the production of more than 500 Japanese and international satellites
as the prime contractor or major subcontractor. Mitsubishi Electric
Corporation developed the first-ever Japanese-made standard satellite
platform, the DS2000. Each satellite has a different role with
distinctive performance requirements, and is typically made-to-order on
this standard platform. Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has the
flexibility to respond to the ever-changing needs of its global
satellite customers.

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation is making mobile mapping and
high-precision positioning systems available in Europe, North America,
Asia and Oceania, where the demand for highly accurate, precise and
efficient field surveys and infrastructure inspections is expected to
grow. Demand is especially promising in North America and Europe, where
high-definition 3D maps are required for commercial systems envisioned
for the future.

“Mitsubishi Electric is known for engineering and manufacturing
innovative products. The new Space & Sensing Systems division is a great
example of this endeavor,”
said Kent Hora, president & CEO,
Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. “The new division will expand our core
offerings and further defines our commitment to growing the company and
defining our footprint in the U.S. satellite and sensing markets.”
