TIM & TOM

The Telematics International Mission (TIM) is a multinational project to combine several nanosatellite missions in an international formation/constellation with the goal of enabling different photogrammetric earth observations with small satellites. For this purpose, the satellites simultaneously observe certain target points on the earth from different angles. From this, 3D models of the observed sceneries can be generated.

SpaceFactory 4.0 - Space factory for small satellites

A swarm of small satellites - manufactured from standard components - in a space factory - and ready for operation within one month after receipt of order! Impossible? We do not believe so! It is generally expected that one day we will produce satellites outside the earth. The question is not if, but when. This question is the starting point of the joint project Space Factory 4.0, which is funded by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi).

QUBE - Secure communication using quantum encryption

Data transfers via conventional systems always guarantee the risk of unwanted monitoring. Even encrypted transmissions generally allow them to be intercepted and decrypted unnoticed. The situation is different with quantum encryption, where secure communication channels are created that offer robust protection against interception.

YETE2

With the YETE2/SIW technology, physically distributed systems are designed and implemented in a way never achieved before. For the data management system, including control, there will be no physical boundaries between the individuals involved. All together form a collective, a single system consisting of components in both the space segment and the ground segment. Based on this, there will then be a global control system and a global data management system.

Eins3D - Airborne environmental reconnaissance in 3D

In the event of major emergencies such as major fires, mass pile-ups or large-scale flooding, it is difficult for the emergency services to obtain an overview of the situation on site. In addition, changes in the damage situation can usually only be registered with a time delay, which makes it considerably more difficult to manage the emergency services effectively.
