Science Programs & Missions

The group of space system design and technologies is involved in various space missions on multiple platforms focussing on the payload or space system design as well as technology readiness maturing. This includes systems engineering, interface definition, high-precison thermal and mechanical simulations as-well-as CAD modelling.more...

The department of System Enabling Technology (Assembly, Integration, Verification and Test) support and complements the realization of various space missions. We develop and validate experimentally selected key technologies in the wide field of optical metrology, which is indispensable for high precision measurements in space. more...

In the group Gravity Sensor Systems (GSS), we develop optical and micro-opto-mechanical technologies for space missions. We are developing novel inertial sensors based on miniture mechanical oscillators and micro-optical displacement sensors. A wide variety of scientific observations in gravitational physics, geodesy and remote sensing rely on the performance of dynamic measurement instruments. Particularly, space projects and high precision experiments in fundamental physics require, at their core, compact and light-weight sensors capable of measuring with extremely high sensitivity.more...
