From 01.09.2003 to 30.09.2020, the Chair of Space Technology has been led by Professor Dr.-Ing. Klaus Brieß.
Since joining the Technische Universität Berlin as professor of space technology, he has dealt extensively with nano and pico satellite technologies and their various uses for the communication and remote sensing of the Earth, Moon and planets. Professor Brieß has special expertise in the area of satellite engineering with a focus on the miniaturisation of space technologies for use in micro, nano and pico satellites as well as space sensors.
Professor Brieß previously worked in aerospace on different
instrumentations and missions for the remote sensing
of the earth, moon, planets, comets and asteroids. Since 1994, his research and development activities has focussed on small satellite missions. As an employee of the German Aerospace Centre from 1996 to 2003, Professor Brieß led the first satellite mission (BIRD) to success.
Under his guidance from 2003 to 2020, 15 satellites were developed, integrated, tested and successfully commissioned in orbit together with students at the TU Berlin.
