Space Technology


The Chair of Space Technology at the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics (ILR) was established in 1963 by Prof. Eugen Sänger as the first German Chair of Space Technology.

Today the scopes of the Chair of Space Technology are the education of future system engineers for astronautics and their preparatory training for today’s requirements of the market.

The focus is set on the design, implementation and operation of small satellite missions. State-of-the-art research on picosatellites and nanosatellites (BEESAT, TUBiX10, TUBiX20) shall continue the successful tradition of the ILR (TUBSAT series).

Besides these activities, the Chair of Space Technology works on the construction and launch of self-made sounding rockets and related experiments (TUPEX series). Furthermore, new fields of research focus on the development and implementation of planetary rovers (SEAR).
