We study electro-magnetic waves, how to generate them, how to receive them and everything which happens in between. We do all that theoretically but especially practically. We simulate and build our prototypes largely ourselves in the laboratories of our institute. Our major topics are currently satellite communication, distributed networks, sensors and radar systems.

On this website more information anout who we are and what we do can be found.
