SPACE

Spectacular and Geared to the Future

Space projects are extraordinary in every respect. Usually these are international projects with a huge investment volume. Rather than using standard series products, extremely high requirements must be met with regard to reliability, robust- ness and durability.

The systems must perform highly complex functions precisely, reliably and under extreme ambient conditions. This requires the use of state-of-the-art engineering tools and know-how as early as in the development phase of such systems.

Scope of Services

  • Simulation of payload components
  • Development of on-board software
  • Software development for ground control segments
  •  Model-based software development
  • Development of test systems
  • Integration on target systems with real-time capability

Space Technology is a World of its Own

An essential task in the development of space systems consists in testing all components for proper function within subcom- ponents and within the overall system under different ambient conditions.

Specifically developed simulators reflect the behaviour and interaction of payload components among each other and with the satellite platform. In this way, a simulation environment is created in parallel to the implementation of the instruments and can be used for the verification of interfaces and real components already in an early stage of assembly of the satellite.

Systems of a Different Kind

Konzept Informationssysteme GmbH has been active in the space industry for more than 20 years, developing systems in compliance with the ECSS standards. Our customers can therefore benefit in their projects from our long-term know-how ranging from the development of on-board software through test systems to payload data processing. Of course, we also meet the high requirements for these systems regarding quality and performance.
