At SpaceTech, we develop laser-optical instruments and quantum-optical payloads for earth observation, science missions and satellite navigation. We specifically excel at developing systems requiring highly stable laser sources e.g. for
- Laser metrology
- Optical frequency references
- Optical clocks
Our instruments and subsystems find their application mainly in climate research and fundamental science missions, but also in optical communication and navigation. GRACE-FO (in-orbit since 2018), MERLIN, LISA, NGGM, GRACE-I and COMPASSO are some prominent examples of our activities.
