  • Cube Sats, Skyhopper und Mini-Launchers: Forum Munich Aerospace Programme published
    10 December 2019
    HUB UAM Summer School Munich Aerospace

    The lecture series Forum Munich Aerospace has been launched this winter semester as a series of eleven lectures on the latest developments in aerospace combined with special historical perspectives of the industry, held both at Ludwig Bölkow Campus and the TUM campus in Garching.

    Professor Klaus Schilling of the University of Würzburg will be holding the second lecture in the series at the Ludwig Bölkow Campus. On Thursday, 12 December 2019, 5:30 pm to 7 pm, in his lecture titled “The Future of Space: Networked, Cooperating Mini-Satellites?” Professor Schilling will address the progress made in satellite construction.

    Reminiscent of the evolution of computer systems in the 1970s, the emergence of satellite mega-constellations is bringing about a paradigm shift away from the traditional large, multi-functional space probes to a distributed model of networked, cooperating mini-satellites. Software is used to compensate for the deficits resulting from hardware miniaturisation, for instance advanced position control and error correction methods. Current mini-satellite formations for earth observation and telecommunications are studied as an illustration of these principles in action.

    Professor Klaus Schilling is head of the Telematics Centre at Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg. His research spans such varied areas as autonomous and adaptive control strategies, telematics methods, sensor technology, mechatronic systems and control of distributed systems. These afford a broad range of possible applications, including design and tele-operation of pico-satellites, industrial mobile robots, sensor systems, tele-education and medical systems. Professor Schilling has been awarded both the ERC Advanced Grant 2012 and the ERC Synergy Grant 2018, and is a supporter of the international RLS Sciences initiative alongside Munich Aerospace.

    Forum Munich Aerospace is a series of events jointly organised by The Technical University of Munich, Munich Aerospace, The German Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Royal Aeronautical Society. Lectures will be held on the Ludwig Bölkow Campus as well as the Garching campus of the Technical University of Munich.

  • ”traffiX and logistiX” conference on Ludwig Bölkow Campus
    27 May 2019
    traffiX logistiX

    How can innovations in the mobility industry be unleashed and accelerated? The traffiX and logistiX innovation forum, which took place on the Ludwig Bölkow Campus on May 22, dealt with this question. The conference, jointly organized and held by Munich Network, Ludwig Bölkow Campus, and Airbus, united international actors from the traffic and logistic ecosystems, presented pioneering technology developments, new mobility services and business models and covered legal and regulatory topics. The moderated discussion rounds and expert panels were complemented by examples and prototypes from practice. For example Airbus’ flying taxi “CityAirbus” or the planned autonomous bus line on the campus of Technical University of Munich were presented. In the course of the event the start-up company “”PREWAVE” won the traffiX and logistiX Innovation Award worth 5.000 Euro.

  • Visit of Canadian start-ups
    25 March 2019
    190319 kan Startups

    On March 19, a group of Canadian start-ups from Quebéc Province visited the Ludwig Bölkow Campus (LBC). The group has been accompanied by high level staff of LBC partner organisation “CRIAQ” based in Montreal and by Quebéc government officials. On the one hand, the Canadian start-ups had the opportunity to establish new business contacts with companies and research institutes in Bavaria and, on the other hand, LBC could expand its network in the Bavarian partner region Quebéc. During a pitching session, each start-up had the chance to present its activities to a professional audience. During a tour of the LBC in the afternoon, the start-ups personally met with staff from companies and research institutes based on campus. An evening cocktail reception hosted by the general delegate of Quebéc to Bavaria, Mrs. Marie-Eve Jean, completed this event.

  • Get-together at Airbus’ “CTO hub”

    Cloud Ararat 2

    On February 18, the first get-together event in 2019 took place on Ludwig Bölkow Campus (LBC). This time the successful start-up company “Cloud Ararat”, which settled on LBC back in 2017, presented itself in the modern facilities of Airbus’ CTO hub. After Mert Altindag, founder and CEO, has presented in detail his young company, the numerous attendees were given the opportunity to ask additional and in-depth questions. The traditional lunch buffet concluded once more the event. The so called "get-togethers" take place approximately every 2 months with changing locations and serve the networking on Ludwig Bölkow Campus.
