MORABA Rocket Launch TT&C in Europe

The Mobile Rocket Base (MORABA) is a department of the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
The Challenge was to acquire ground stations to support fast acquisition and telemetry during rocket launch and flight phases.

ORBIT Solution incorporated two Antenna’s to work in parallel: 1.5 meter antenna to ensure robust and fast tracking and a 5 meter antenna to switch from high to low servo band during telemetry phase.

The results: fast tracking with backup to ensure zero data loss.
