ARC Linkage: Downlinks for Future Earth Observation Satellites: Breaking the Bottlenecks

A collaboration with Thales Alenia Space and Thales Australia

ARC Project


Current technology can not provide high enough data rates for future earth observation from space. This imagery is critical for dealing with changing environments and making best use of Australia's natural resources. In this project, new transmission techniques for gigabit remote sensing applications will be developed. This research will exploit recent advances in signal processing and coding methods, enabling new space and ground segment products and providing specialised technical training.
