Contract signed for “LTE over Satellite” research project

December 1, 2014: The SATCOM research group of our institute has been awarded a two years feasibility study on the integration of broadband satellite links into terrestrial military LTE networks. The project is part of the “first mile” initiative of the German MoD which deals with next-generation enabling technologies for broadband communications solutions for the troops in the theater of operations. The study led by our institute will be conducted in joint work with the partners Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits and INRADIOS integrated radio solutions GmbH. The main output will be a full-size system demonstrator.

Laboratory measurement campaign of military Ka band SATCOM on-the-Move (SOTM) terminals

November 1, 2014: With to the broad SATCOM expertise of our research group our institute supports an in detail evaluation of military Ka band SOTM terminals carried out at the FORTE test facility of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (FhG IIS). The study of the procurement agency of the Bundeswehr (BAAINBw) led by our partner, DIRACON Innovation Consultants GmbH, analyses the RF characteristics and tracking performances of SOTM antennas in the military Ka band. Furthermore the degree of an end-to-end QoS data transmission in conjunction with a demanded IP encryption will be measured. The study will be finished by end of March 2015.
