    AI-based sensor system for space observation with small satellites

    The number of small satellites in orbit is growing steadily. Often, many satellites are launched into orbit at once. In the long term, this can lead to higher collision probabilities in orbit.
    In the KI-SENS project, intelligent optical sensors for space observation are being developed, which will be able to detect approaches and contribute to collision avoidance.
    Special about KI-SENS is that the work on the project is being carried out primarily by students from the student association WüSpace e. V..

    The project is funded by the German Space Agency at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with funds from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK; FKZ 50RU2227).

    Start of the project:
    2 years
