The GSDR is a highly integrated software-defined radio (SDR) platform that allows the operation of multiple applications in a broad frequency range from 70 MHz to 6 GHz (and beyond). The GSDR uses state-of-the-art technologies to allow high performance data processing and an extreme flexibility for rapid development and reconfiguration. For a reliable operation is space, the GSDR has been specifically designed and tested with respect to the harsh environment in space, in particular to radiation effects.
The GSDR is currently at a technical readiness level (TRL) of 7 and is intended to be used for the next Compact-Satellite missions of the DLR as the essential communication subsystem, either for Telecommand and Telemetry (TMTC) transmission in S-Band as well as for high speed data transmission in X-Band. Key features of the GSDR are:
Following the MoU signed in December 2020, UARX Space is pleased to announce the signature of a Cooperation Agreement with DLR, German Aerospace Center. This agreement further enhanced their relationship toward common goals.
The Cooperation Agreement involves joint developments for UARX Space spacecraft for Low Earth Orbits and Moon Missions, including the development of spacecraft and landers.
"This Agreement is a huge milestone for us. The expertise of DLR in communications and avionics will assure the best performance for our spacecraft", said Andrés Villa, CTO of UARX Space.
"The idea of in-orbit transportation services is exciting and requires extreme flexible avionics", said Dr. Frank Dannemann, Head of the Avionic Department of the DLR Institute of Space System. "We are happy that our experience in the field of future space avionic systems fits well to these requirements and I'm looking forward to a fruitful and successful collaboration with UARX Space", said Jan Budroweit, Lead Developer for Cognitive Radio Systems for Space Application at DLR.
