    5G METEORS implements and operates a framework supporting dynamic prototyping in the field of 5G and satellite communications using 3GPP NR (New Radio) waveforms for direct access, as well as for backhauling. Its main objective is to support the integration of satellites in 5G by responding in an agile manner to technology developments driven...

  • SDR App Store


    A radically new type of OSR, consisting of a CERMET-based thin film coating deposited on the first surface of a flexible foil, featuring low solar absorbance, high thermal emissivity, and extreme durability to the space environment. The foil can be very thin, and made of any of a wide range of space compliant materials, from metals, to polymers...

  • Compact Lens

    In this project, we investigate lens antennas as a cost-effective solution for the ground terminal in on-the-move satellite communications. The main design goals are: high directivity, electrical or hybrid mechanical and electrical steerable radiation, low cost, and compact size.

  • CCD5

    To design and validate a joint BLoS (Beyond-Line-of-Sight) and LoS (Line-of-Sight) air interface for the command and control of UAVs in the 5030‐5091 MHz band, implement a UAV terminal prototype and to present a waveform design for standardization in the relevant bodies.

  • MIGNON- MIcro-achined Filters in Multi-layer...

    The objective of the MIGNON project is to develop and evaluate Ka-band surface mountable miniaturized cavity filters realized in multilayer micro-machined technolog
