An ESA Funding Contract Is Awarded To Siemens Convergence Creators

[Satnews] Together with the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, the Space Division of Siemens Convergence Creators has won a funding contract from ESA through the ARTES Competitiveness & Growth program.

The funding will be used to evaluate different satellite interference mitigation solutions, most of them related to the problem of localizing an interference signal by using just one satellite. The concepts to be evaluated include correlation against known transmitters, measurement and identification of Doppler scaling, beam isolation measurements, and the use of quantum correlation algorithms to improve traditional two satellite geolocation systems.

SIECAMS®, Siemens Convergence Creators' existing top-notch product line for satellite signal interference localization, will benefit greatly from the outcome of this activity, enhancing the company's competencies in this area even further. As a result, operators of satellite carrier monitoring and satellite networks will be able to enjoy more technically advanced interference localization solutions in the future.

Hans-Martin Steiner, Head of Space Business Unit, Siemens Convergence Creators, said, "The funding contract from the ARTES program enables us to do more of what we set out to do with our SIECAMS® solution—ensuring the highest possible quality in satellite communication. The Austrian Institute of Technology is a great partner to have on board in this endeavor and we are looking forward to uncovering any to date untapped potential for interference mitigation together."
