ICARUS antenna system operational on ISS

September 1, 2018: In mid of August, Russian cosmonauts have successfully mounted the space part of the ICARUS wildlife observation system on board of the International Space Station (ISS). This event became the occasion for a big public outreach campaign advertising the benefits and chances of this once-in-a-lifetime project. Among the numerous publications and TV-reports, the STERN magazine published one of the most comprehensive special contributions. In this report, the contributions of the Bundeswehr and or our institute have been prominently highlighted. For more information, please see.
Space Research Cooperation with TUM.jpg

Space Research Cooperation with TUM

August, 2018: The Chair of Signal Processing has signed a research cooperation agreement with the Chair of Space Flight Technology of the Technical University Munich (TUM), which is headed by former German astronaut Prof. Ulrich Walter. Both institutions belong to the leading research entities for satellite communication technology in Germany, and now they have committed themselves to bundle resources and efforts in order to strengthen the Munich area as Germany’s air and space center. Since the state of Bavaria has recently directed its research focus to human spaceflight and space technologies, the agreement is intended to foster cooperation under the umbrella of the respective space program “BavAIRia One”. The cooperation will provide an unrivaled environment for cutting-edge research, following the Bundeswehr University’s outstanding 40 years of heritage in that field.

Upgrading Access to Space with our new Antenna Site

July, 2018: The team members of the Chair of Signal Processing followed the exciting moment when the reflectors were lifted on the pedestals to finish the setup of their new earth station antennas. With our new antennas operating in Ku-band and in X/Ka-band we extend our research and test site the Munich Center for Space Communications by new frequency bands and increased performance. In a couple of projects, we are eagerly awaiting the new test facilities. Having multiple antennas, we are now able to perform tests in different frequency bands at the same time. With our new 7.6 m Ku-band dish antenna, for example, we are now also able to anchor a MIMO over Satellite gateway link.
