COMED framework is oriented towards factors, which are essential for
the marketability of future satellite systems like:
- fast packet switching through an asynchronous transmission technique,
- on-board processing,
- development of technologies for serial production of sub-systems
and components, and
- reduction of the overall mass of the satellite.
The Satellite Group @ Fraunhofer FOKUS.cats takes part in the
on-board processing project, coordinated by Bosch (TeSat GmbH).
Its main role includes studies and basic developments in the areas
ATM switching and on-board processing.
The COMED project flyer is available
as a pdf-file.
