Space researchers have joined forces to create a unique, integrated space communications and control emulation platform for the next-generation of space applications: the 5G-SpaceLab.
The lab leverages all the space laboratories to form a unique, integrated and interdisciplinary space communications and control emulation platform targeting both small satellites and space exploration rovers.
The 5G-SpaceLab allows the testing, validation and demonstration of space operations for communications scenarios between two different points, including:
– Earth to an orbiting satellite
– Earth to the Moon
– Moon to Moon
Space companies and government actors are now able to test innovative technologies in a realistic network environment, in a lab that is flexible and multipurpose.
