Cube Sats, Skyhopper und Mini-Launchers: Forum Munich Aerospace Programme published

2019 11 07 Forum MA Programm
Programme of "Forum Munich Aerospace" 2019/2020 published

7 November 2019 - The lecture series Forum Munich Aerospace has been launched this winter semester as a series of eleven lectures on the latest developments in aerospace combined with special historical perspectives of the industry, held both at Ludwig Bölkow Campus and the TUM campus in Garching.

Professor Klaus Schilling of the University of Würzburg will be holding the second lecture in the series at the Ludwig Bölkow Campus. On Thursday, 12 December 2019, 5:30 pm to 7 pm, in his lecture titled “The Future of Space: Networked, Cooperating Mini-Satellites?” Professor Schilling will address the progress made in satellite construction.

Reminiscent of the evolution of computer systems in the 1970s, the emergence of satellite mega-constellations is bringing about a paradigm shift away from the traditional large, multi-functional space probes to a distributed model of networked, cooperating mini-satellites. Software is used to compensate for the deficits resulting from hardware miniaturisation, for instance advanced position control and error correction methods. Current mini-satellite formations for earth observation and telecommunications are studied as an illustration of these principles in action.

Professor Klaus Schilling is head of the Telematics Centre at Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg. His research spans such varied areas as autonomous and adaptive control strategies, telematics methods, sensor technology, mechatronic systems and control of distributed systems. These afford a broad range of possible applications, including design and tele-operation of pico-satellites, industrial mobile robots, sensor systems, tele-education and medical systems. Professor Schilling has been awarded both the ERC Advanced Grant 2012 and the ERC Synergy Grant 2018, and is a supporter of the international RLS Sciences initiative alongside Munich Aerospace.

Forum Munich Aerospace is a series of events jointly organised by The Technical University of Munich, Munich Aerospace, The German Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Royal Aeronautical Society. Lectures will be held on the Ludwig Bölkow Campus as well as the Garching campus of the Technical University of Munich.
