CLOSER TO GNSS ANTENNAS CALIBRATION IN POLAND. ASTRI POLSKA WITH A GREEN LIGHT FROM ESA

Uncategorized
The GNSS antennas calibration environment developed by Astri Polska and Warmia and Mazury University in Olsztyn, Poland (UWM Olsztyn) granted a green light from the European Space Agency to proceed with the integration of the entire system. At the beginning of October, in the presence of the ESA technical officer, the project consortium has proven that the developed solutions are working properly in real-life conditions. The project will allow Poland to acquire significant competencies in the domain that is currently a market niche.   GRAVEr (GNSS Receiver Antenna calibration serVice for new E-GNSS signals) is a project held by Astri Polska and UWM Olsztyn for European Space Agency. It aims to develop and implement a calibration environment for GNSS antennas that are capable to receive signals on different frequencies and systems, with…

ASTRI POLSKA SATELLITE ICE MONITORING SYSTEM TO BECOME PART OF THE COPERNICUS PROGRAME

ASTRI POLSKA SATELLITE ICE MONITORING SYSTEM TO BECOME PART OF THE COPERNICUS PROGRAME

Uncategorized
A satellite ice monitoring service developed by Astri Polska for the monitoring of European inland waters will be implemented as a new functionality of the Copernicus satellite Earth observation programme. It will be used, among others, by crisis management organisations. It will be the first solution of this kind developed by a Polish company for the Copernicus programme. Solutions provided by Astri Polska will make it possible to monitor the ice cover on European inland waters based on data provided by the Sentinel-2 optical satellite as part of the Copernicus programme. The algorithms will operate fully automatically, and the data will be processed in near real-time. This means that newly acquired satellite data will be available in the form of information products in the shortest time possible. The monitoring will…

Uncategorized
Astri Polska will provide devices for satellites ordered by leading European telecommunications operators. Solutions designed and manufactured by Polish engineers will be used for the integration of satellites manufactured by Airbus Defence and Space as the main contractor.  Devices supplied by Astri Polska will be used to test the electronic systems of the satellites before they are put into orbit. A total of four satellites ordered by two leading European telecommunications operators will be tested. One is Eutelsat, the French company operating the Hotbird satellites, which are used for TV and radio transmissions. The other is Hisdesat, the Spanish operator of the SpainSAT satellites, which are used for secure communications by the Spanish Ministry of Defence and by countries participating in the European Governmental Satellite Communications Programme, or GOVSATCOM.
