Technion and IAI Co-develop New Satellite Technology for Search, Rescue, and Signal Detection Missions

Technological and research collaboration between the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has yielded an advanced electronic receiver that constitutes a unique development in the nano-satellite category.

The collaboration was part of Technion’s " ADELIS-SAMSON" project, in which three nano-satellites will be launched into space in December. The three satellites, which will fly in an autonomous formation without human intervention, are tasked with receiving signals from Earth and detecting their precise location for search and rescue, remote sensing, and environmental monitoring missions.

 The software and algorithms that control the flight were developed at Technion’s Distributed Space Systems Lab in the Asher Space Research Institute.
