Highly sophisticated OHB System now completed for customers in South Korea and Israel

Complex system for transmitting space camera data undergoing two weeks of testing at OHB

Bremen-based space technology company OHB-System AG has developed on behalf of elop Ltd., Israel a system for transmitting complex data streams swiftly from space. The system is implemented in a multispectral camera (MSC), which is to generate high-resolution images for geographic information systems on board the South Korean earth observation satellite KOMPSAT-2.

It operates very reliably and quickly and can process large volumes of data. Thanks to its certified suitability for space, it is resistant to all environmental factors.

Over the next two weeks, the customers together with the South Korean space agency KARI will attend presentations demonstrating the efficiency of this highly sophisticated channel-coding and encryption unit and receive instruction on its use from OHB’s development engineers. For this purpose, OHB has additionally developed an automatic testing system to check and audit all performance perimeters. After a thorough training phase this will also be made available to the customer.
