Locate Small Satellites

Stuttgart engineer Andreas Hornig has taken first place with his "Distributed Ground Station Network" project. With his self-developed ground station he can track small cubesats so that they don't get lost in space. The small, inexpensive backpack satellites are not much larger than a shoe box and are taken into space by conventional rockets. Once they are in orbit, they must be retrieved as quickly as possible. Thanks to Andreas Hornig's ground stations, the motto for the future will be: No mission will be lost in space!

Other award winners:

Second place went to White Sands Earth Observation with its "LiveEO" project. Sven Przywarra and his team have developed software that can be used to analyze data from images taken between a flying object and satellites. With a hybrid aircraft from the company Hybrid Airplane, they can take and evaluate impressive observation images that were previously impossible to capture.

A "new tool for craftsmen" was the motto of the third place winner this year: the two Constance-based companies, Bernot IT-Technology and vaireco GmbH, have developed a thermal imaging camera which, when attached to a flying object or a long telescopic rod, can detect faults in buildings and installations.
