Agile telemetry… more than ever


In cooperation with SENSOR+TEST 2018



Telemetry technologies for aeronautical, space, automotive, biomedical application are both supported and challenged by innovative industrial developments like IoT, Big Data, Wireless System. Connectivity is the backbone of the modern society!
Adapting to and integrating these new technologies represent 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!

Special Sessions 2018: AIM², ICTS and ETSC

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.

ETSC Open Meeting

The ETSC has been set-up on May 18, 1994 during the European Telemetry Conference ETC´94 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The foundation process has been supported by the corresponding US-organisation known as Telemetering Standards Coordination Committee (TSCC), sponsored by the international Foundation for Telemetering.

The ETSC was chartered under the binational sponsorship of the organisations SEE (club 17) with AAAF of France and the AK-TM with DGLR (panel T 6.1 „Telemetry and Communication Transmission“) of Germany. Further European organisations are welcome to participate. A first draft proposal of the ETSC-Charter was prepared until July 20, 1994. During ETC´96 on May 20, 1996 the third draft version of the charter has been finally approved.

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 last summer: don't miss the opportunity to attend to the first Short Course on the new standard!

    About Space Tech Expo Europe

    In its third year, Space Tech Expo Europe will be returning to Bremen - a centre of space excellence. The exhibition is Europe's premier B2B Space engineering event for spacecraft, satellite, launch vehicle and space related technologies and draws attendance from thousands of industry leaders, decision makers, engineers, specifiers and buyers to meet manufacturers and the supply chain for civil, military and commercial space.

    Strategically positioned in Central Europe, Bremen is a city of aerospace excellence. Space Tech Expo Europe is the continent's major dedicated supply-chain and engineering event for manufacturing, design, test and engineering services for spacecraft, subsystems and space-qualified components.

    19 – 21 November 2019  Bremen, Germany
