From the year 2021, ‘Hein­rich Hertz’ will cir­cle Earth in a geo­sta­tion­ary or­bit at an al­ti­tude of ap­prox­i­mate­ly 36,000 kilo­me­tres. Along­side new tech­nolo­gies to be test­ed un­der space con­di­tions, it will car­ry some 20 ex­per­i­ments on com­mu­ni­ca­tions, an­ten­nas and satel­lite tech­nol­o­gy.
