Satellite Communications

This page is devoted to "our" satellites. Well, actually none of the satellites are ones owned by the University, but this page lists some of the satellites we have used, or been associated with design of ground segment equipment. Aberdeen University has participated in a series of telecommunications projects with the European Space Agency, dating back to 1992.
