About the Space Lab

IDS has always focused its core competences on research and development of advanced electromagnetic modeling methods.

The company has applied its acquired know-how to space technologies, creating a highly specialized team of qualified engineers working the dedicated Space Lab.

The Lab offers support and products to antenna engineers involved in antenna and array design, electromagnetic engineering and other related fields.

The Space Lab flagship product: Antenna Design Framework is a direct outcome of the long-standing collaboration among several partners: IDS's Computational EM Lab, main European Universities and the European Space Agency's Antenna Department

The aim was to ensure the Lab plays a central role in driving the niche EM engineering field with a commitment to overcome the limitations of existing electromagnetic simulators, not only in terms of modeling algorithms but also in its structured team approaches.

Over the years, IDS has gained considerable experience in advanced technologies and tools development by working closely with the IDS Divisions' customers.

IDS has achieved its goals by joining forces with a number of major players in the space sector and playing an active role in space programs like SICRAL, OCEANSAT-2, SAC-D, SMALLGEO, GALILEO among others.

The expertise acquired has made the Space Lab a leader in space technologies with products, services and partnerships covering:

  • Specialized suite of EM tools
  • Partnerships with the European Space Agency/European projects
  • Consultancy and support services.
