has through the years mainly been engaged in custom design projects, incorporating advanced analog, microwave, ASIC and power electronics. Examples range from a power system for an ESA satellite, full custom ASIC designs for several projects, to subsystems for scientific radiometers, such as ODIN, SMILES and TELIS. The majority of the projects involve both prototyping and hardware demonstrations. To accomplish this, Omnisys has set up a production and test facility which matches the design environment. Omnisys lab has instruments for microwave characterisation and measurements such as spectrum analyzers and vector analyzers, several digital oscilloscopes, as well as facilities for power system test and verification.

derives its origin partly from research conducted at the Royal Institute of Technology, a leading Swedish technical university, and partly from research at AGA Innovation Center. The Center comprised of laboratories for long-term research of AGA AB, a major Swedish industrial group. In 1980 the AGA Group brought together the various high technology and electro-optics businesses to form a new group. The thin film optics projects were transferred to a subsidiary, AGA Optical, which eventually became Spectrogon. Spectrogon AB became an independant company in 1991 in an employee buy-out.

The human body relies on gravity to maintain muscle strenght and power. Without normal gravitional pull, skeletal muscle size and bone density decrease, much as when patients are confined to bed. In an effort to combat the ebilitating effects of weightlessness, Drs Per Tesch and Hans Berg of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm,have researched this problem with support from NASA, ESA and the Swedish National Space Board. YoYo technology has developed several exercise concepts for astronauts.
