Chair

The Chair of Signal Processing (CSP) is among the leading research institutes with a strong focus and dedication to satellite and space communications technology. Our research activities comprise all types of research problems and applications in signal processing, waveform design, signal monitoring, and network integration for contemporary communication satellites and other space borne platforms.

With the Munich Center for Space Communications, the CSP hosts and operates one of Germany’s largest and most versatile research facilities for true over-the-air testing of satellite communication equipment and technologies. The Center is split up into a governmental test and verification range called “Bundeswehr SATCOM Center for Evaluation, Research & Test” (SatCERTBw) and the “Munich SpaceCom Labs”, an independent and open research facility for space communications. Equipped with satellite ground stations C-, X-, Ku- and Ka-band, signal generation and measurement capabilities, as well as different satellite capacities, the Center offers lab setups, system trials, system and equipment evaluation, as well as various research test beds for special problems.

As another research branch, with a history of more than 20 years the CSP has been operating a very successful research division for Biomedical Information Technology. This group, nowadays led by Principle Scientist Dr. Gerhard Staude, focuses on signal processing methods for non-invasive clinical diagnosis. In this context the group pledges in-depth cooperation with numerous hospitals and research groups of leading medical centers and faculties.

Since October 2014 the CSP has been headed by Andreas Knopp as the chair holder and director.

The Chair of Signal Processing (CSP) is hosting the OHB endowed Assistant Professorship for Secure Space Communications. This professorship, sponsored for a 6 years period by Europe’s third largest satellite manufacturer OHB System AG, is dedicated to research on physical layer security for space applications.

The assistant professorship involves the leadership of the CSP Secure Space Communications Research Group. It will particularly contribute with research on how to design jamming-proof and eavesdropping-hardened radio signals for space.

In February 2017 Christian Hofmann has been appointed as the OHB endowed Assistant Professor for “Secure Space Communications”.
