Range of Services and Solutions

Satellite Communication

Fraunhofer IIS scientists develop solutions that help people and systems communicate globally via satellite. These solutions range from concept to implementation, comprising system and architecture definition, transmission technologies and components such as antennas, transmitters and receivers. In addition, our scientists develop ground station technologies and test equipment.

In the field of implementation of cutting edge communications technology, an unique hardware end-to-end test-bed was constructed for wideband DVB-S2X-compliant data transmission. In addition, continuous research on the development of wideband-capable equipment and techniques is practiced to further enhance true wideband transmission over satellite with respect to high throughput gains.

Our research in satellite communication is concerned with ground components, subsystems and systems for communication via satellite. Additionally, we develop satellite technologies and components such as the Fraunhofer On-Board Processor (FOBP), a reconfigurable processor for communication applications, or the SUGA antenna (Space User GNSS Antenna).
