The RF System Division (TEC-ES) of the Electrical Department (TEC-E) is pleased to announce the 9th ESA International Workshop on Tracking, Telemetry and Command Systems for Space Applications, TT&C 2022, which will be held from the 28th November to the 1st December 2022 at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk (The Netherlands). Tracking, Telemetry and Command Systems are of fundamental importance in the space programmes. Recent developments in the areas of telecommunications, signal processing, computing and electronics, provide new capabilities in the design and functionality of TT&C systems either in space or in ground systems. New frequency bands, including optical, start to be a reality. New Modulation and Coding schemes allow a more efficient use of the link resources. Its adequate exploitation is also a very attractive area for innovation of the space to ground link and for extraction of the consequent benefits. The way to operate a mission is evolving with the introduction of the latest innovations in TT&C technologies, methods and system architectures, ranging from small nanosats to large Deep Space missions.
Alongside the workshop, an industrial exhibition will be organised. European companies active in the TT&C area will be invited to exhibit their products either by means of equipment demonstrations or by appropriate posters. The workshop will offer the opportunity of joining many professionals in a single place allowing to interact with a wide sample of the TT&C community.
