ASA OGS600 the new optical ground station!

New generation

The new generation of fully robotic, optical ground stations is a dome design specially developed as integrated system, for multi-functional use in optical communications (laser and quantum communications) as well as space debris observations and laser ranging of artificial space objects.

“This week I have a very special job at the Space Tech Expo Europe in Bremen, the largest space event in Europe. The presentation of a world’s first – The ASA Optical Ground Station (OGS) A full robotic ASA telescope housed in the newly developed “dome” it can optically communicate with satellites using laser technology and measure the distance to the satellites with millimetre precision.

This technology is necessary for e.g. GPS satellite networks like Galileo to guarantee the needed GPS accuracy, or transfer data absolute eavesdropping proof worldwide. It is nice to be part of such an interesting project. For me, a dream has come true again. Many thanks to my family and my ASA team.”
