Radio occultation.

Satellite-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) radio occultation (RO) technology has become a standard technique for global atmospheric remote sensing. Today, RO is one of the most important data sources for global weather forecasting and climate monitoring.

Beyond Gravity offers state-of-the-art RO instruments that provide reliable data and have a long history of flying the European Weather sateallite’s, MetOp, GRAS instruments, which have served as the RO gold standard since 2006. GRAS-2 is our new generation RO instrument and offers state-of-the-art RO performance, a greater number of soundings, and continuous global coverage. It will be deployed on all MetOp-SG satellites and will provide RO data through 2050.

Data processing.

With 120 satellite data processing systems delivered to date, we have a long tradition of providing optimal solutions for our space customers. Our latest generation of high performance general purpose single board computer (Lynx) is the next step in a long line of successfully developed and marketed products.

Our payload processor boards are designed for critical tasks in a harsh radiation environment and have flexible communications, interface and mass storage capabilities. With the help of software partner companies, we can offer artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity products for future customer applications.

"Customers who want to do Machine Learning in space need a lot of computing power – which our computer can provide."
