Professor Andreas Knopp is a founding member of the SPACE Research Center and holds the Chair of Signal Processing at the Institute of Information Technology.

Satellite communication is an integral part of technological progress and is omnipresent in the digital world. The research we conduct in the field of information processing contributes to functioning and safe communication via satellite, for example in emergencies or crisis situations that require communication over long distances and independent of terrestrial networks. Protecting satellite communication from hacking attacks is vitally important both for military and civilian purposes. The elimination of interfering signals – and thus the improvement of satellite signals – is another focus issue.

The Chair of Information Processing includes four groups that work on secure space communications, digital satellite payloads and satellite surveillance, satellite networks and waveforms, and biomedical information technology. With the Munich Center for Space Communications, we also operate Germany’s largest laboratory and testing facility for satellite-based 5G networks and the Internet of Things. This Center’s independent research facility for satellite and space communications, Munich SpaceCom Labs, is completely open for use by the public research community and provides excellent technical infrastructure.

We are a member of the Satellite Communications Committee of IEEE ComSoc, the CODE Research Center of the University of the Bundeswehr Munich and the NATO Capability Team for Satellite Communications (NATO SATCOM CaT), among others.
