Micro Satellite Systems and Modelling Methods

The micro satellites and modelling methods group develops innovative micro satellite hardware as well as new numerical modelling methods within the scope of orbit propagation, satellite mission analysis and satellite system evaluation.

The first research focus aims at the utilization of micro satellites as a tool for technology demonstration and qualification, as a platform for small scientific payloads, and as a tool for the improvement of student education.

The second research pillar focuses on new high precision modelling methods for implementing a better analysis and prediction of orbit perturbations within the scope of orbit propagation. Furthermore, we develop innovative modelling approaches for the assessment of mission and experiment performance.
