Nehmen Sie an diesem EPIC Technology Meeting zum Thema Photonics for NewSpace – Optical communication im Rahmen der ESA Industry Days teil!

Diese exklusive Veranstaltung konzentriert sich auf die Vorreiterrolle der NewSpace, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf der optischen Kommunikation liegt. In Sitzung 1 werden wir Endanwender und Integratoren zusammenbringen, um die Herausforderungen und den sich entwickelnden Bedarf in diesem wichtigen Sektor zu diskutieren. Sie erhalten wertvolle Einblicke in die pragmatischen Aspekte der Zusammenarbeit mit der ESA und die Möglichkeiten der Zusammenarbeit. In Sitzung 2 werden Unternehmen ihre innovativen Lösungen für den NewSpace-Bereich vorstellen, die von der Verteilung von Quantenschlüsseln bis hin zu fortschrittlichen optischen Komponenten, einschließlich integrierter Photonik, reichen. Erfahren Sie, wie diese Fortschritte die Weltraummissionen revolutionieren, indem sie die Datenübertragung verbessern und eine sichere Kommunikation ermöglichen.

Seien Sie dabei, wenn wir an der Schnittstelle von Photonik und Weltraumkommunikation die Weichen für die Zukunft der Weltraumtechnologie stellen.
