Information Technology


AZ Technology’s information technology department grew out of the need for embedded processors and data acquisition requirements for our space flight experiments. AZ was the first company to implement a real-time telemetry download system for an automated experiment on the Russian Space Station Mir. This lead directly to the VoIP system developed for the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) under the federal government’s Small Business Innovation Research Program, which was designed to give experimenters remote access to the International Space Station. Not only is it still being used today, but AZ Technology was recently involved in installing it with the replacement keyset hardware across the entire agency.

AZ also develops all the data acquisition and embedded software for our line of laboratory and space instruments and services and supports the user community around the world. AZ Technology currently supports the Unified NASA Information Technology Services (UNITeS) program.
