As part of the EUSPACE FOR BUSINESS conference on November the 6th in Graz, an international delegation of the Space Attachés visited the Hilmwarte to discover more about research activities and achievements of the group "Space and Communication Technology". JOANNEUM RESEARCH DIGITAL has been delivering top-rate performance for satellite communications, wave propagation and space experimentation - experiments, studies and small series for ESA, NASA and many other customers and project partners. The Q-/V-band satellite ground station, built in 2013, one of only three such stations worldwide, was an essential step made by JR experts that clearly enables the future use of these maximum frequencies for satellite radio.
DI Dr. Michael Schoenhuber and DI Michael Schmidt provided guests insights into new space developments, trends and consequences for institutions and industry, security challenges for space infrastructures and the impact of numerous New Space initiatives on the global competitive landscape in the space sector. The presentation as well as the demonstration of Q-/V-band potential attracted a lot of attention among the visitors and aroused great interest.
