Call for Papers - Abstract deadline extended!

Call for Papers for The European Test and Telemetry Conference ettc2018

June 26th-28th, 2018
Nuremberg, Germany

Agile telemetry… more than ever

Abstract deadline January 26th, 2018 February 2nd 2018
In cooperation with SENSOR+TEST 2018


Telemetry technologies for aeronautical, space, automotive, biomedical applications… are both supported and challenged by innovative industrial developments like IoT, Big Data, Wireless Systems… Connectivity is the backbone of the modern society!
Adapting to and integrating these new technologies re-present many challenges but offer new capabilities, which are mandatory for testing modern and future systems, including UAVs / drones.
Security of links and networks is to be included by design: jamming, anti-jamming, spoofing…
It’s actually only about remaining agile… but today more than ever!

Join the European Test and Telemetry Conference 2018 and share your applications of telemetry with your peers from all industries! Attend short courses, technical presentations, standardization committees and working groups. Visit the large exhibition covering all topics of the high technology business of telemetry.

Requested topics include

  • Data Acquisition & Sensors
  • Data Management Technology & Solutions – Big Data!
  • Networks & Transport Protocols
  • Internet of Things
  • Security of links and networks: jamming, anti-jamming, spoofing
  • Distributed Operations – a Telemetry Cloud?
  • Remote Site Automation
  • Range Safety Systems
  • Ground Systems Architectures
  • Spectrum Efficient Technologies & Applications
  • RF Design, Receivers & Antennas
  • Optical transmission
  • Modulation & Coding
  • Imaging & Video
  • Time Space position technologies
  • Other Aspects of Telemetry

Pre-conference SHORT COURSE for free

COMPLETER.NET on behalf of SMARTRONIX and CALCULEX invites all conference participants to attend the pre-conference SHORT COURSE for free. The standard IRIG 106-17 Chapter 23 on MDL / Metadata Description Language has been publicized this summer: don't miss the opportunity to attend to the first Short Course on the new standard!

Special Sessions 2018: AIM² and ICTS

logo AIM2018

Flight testing is the most critical and time- and budget-consuming phase of aircraft development. Within a short time reliable performance data of the new airframe have to be gathered; this includes structural, aerodynamic and flight mechanic parameters. Advanced optical measurement techniques such as those developed within the collaborative project AIM² (Advanced In-flight Measurement techniques 2, funded by the European Commission contract no. 266107) are able to deliver such data after a very short time, and in addition can minimize the installation effort on the airframe compared with classical measurement techniques. Furthermore they work mostly non-intrusively and are able to capture a large amount of important data in an area or over a volume at one instant of time.

The specific session Advanced In-flight Measurement Techniques will focus on the presentation of the latest developments of such optical methods. Participants will get a good overview on what is possible with these measurement methods and will be able to discuss with specialists about any important issues concerning these techniques and their applications.



The ICTS General Session, sponsored by the IFT’s International Consortium for Telemetry Spectrum (, will cover potential threats to the life-blood of telemetry: RF Spectrum. Telemetry professionals, providers, and customers should monitor these threats closely and take action as needed to ensure that the needs of the greater telemetering community are reflected in international and domestic regulations and policy.

The ICTS, founded in 1999, is a non-profit organization sponsored by the International Foundation for Telemetering. The ICTS was formed to facilitate international information exchange between telemetry practitioners and promote the benefits and enhancement of the electromagnetic spectrum for telemetering applications, especially Aeronautical Mobile Telemetering (AMT). The ICTS has enjoyed notable success in both augmenting telemetry spectrum plus raising the awareness of, and resistance to, spectrum encroachment problems directly affecting the telemetry user community.
