From institutional Space towards Space 4.0: commercial optical instruments

  • Kees Buijsrogge
  • TNO

The Netherlands – Airbus D&S Nl, SRON, KNMI and TNO - have great heritage in the development, realization and science of earth observation instruments, with TROPOMI as the most recent example. TNO has developed the optical heart of those instruments for more than 50 years. Next to that we have been active in the field of astronomy: correcting for the turbulence in the atmosphere with adaptive optics. Combing these two expertise’s enables us to make Space 4.0 happen: we develop start of the art laser satellite communication terminals and position Dutch companies in these international supply chains for the series production.
