Ku-Band Lab Test

The INRADIOS GmbH agrees with its military customer to extend the SATCOM on the Move Ku-Band field test by an additional lab test. Such a tests allow a detailed analysis of an end-to-end ink performance, including for example antenna pattern, positioning, acquisition, and tracking testing. Furthermore, realistic fading channel models and signal impairments are included within the test environment as well as GPS/Galileo HF signal.

ICARUS INRADIOS GmbH starts the ICARUS HDL development.

The INRADIOS starts the next phase within the ICARUS Initiative project. This phase mainly focuses on the uplink HDL implementation of the full Physical Layer of ISS (international space station) onboard receiver. Starting from timing and frequency correction over symbol detection, forward error correction, management and control interface up to the MAC interface, the INRADIOS is covering all aspects of mobile / satellite communication within this project. Furthermore, the physical layer downlink algorithms will also developed and implemented

H2Sat Link Planning Software for H2Sat is released.

Within the one year duration of Phase A1/B of the Heinrich Hertz project, the INRADIOS GmbH successfully released its tailored link planning software, which is able to simulate all relevant system impairments like gain compressions, power amplifier nonlinearities, single tone and multitone behavior. Furthermore, the user is now able to calculate and optimize link budgets for different regions taking into account for example ITU weather models and antenna gain patterns.

ICARUS INRADIOS GmbH develops the ICARUS Initiative Physical Layer and MAC Layer concept.

The ICARUS (International Cooperation for Animal Research Using Space), initiative has the main goal to further investigate the migration and dispersal behavior of small animals with the help of a remote sensing platform. Such a platform shall track small organisms globally and hence has to be placed in space in order to provide a large coverage. During this first study phase, INRADIOS will provide an answer to the question whether a communication link between the animals and the space platform can be in principle established or not. During this phase, the main focus lies on the communication link channel properties such as radio frequency impairments caused due to the mobility of the space platform as well as the animals or signal reflections on the ground and buildings. Here a link budget analysis will be done. Additionally, the topic of data transmission protocols, different multi user (animals) access schemes are also discussed.
