AnsuR Facts

With top level satellite communications and system expertise, AnsuR Technologies does high level R&D in satellite and wireless image, voice and data communications, develops own solutions, provides selected customers with advice and contributes globally via standardization and workshops.

AnsuR specializes in R&D for satellite and wireless communication networking solutions, in particular focussing on cross-layer aspects taking voice/audio/video/images into account.

Efficient voice and image communications concepts are part of our Innovative Communication solutions. In satellite communications we have in particular strong expertise on Imarsat BGAN (mobile broadband) and DVB-RCS (fixed broadband).

AnsuR is further significantly involved in standardization work, disseminations and symposia and provides advice and scientific input to organizations such as Inmarsat.

AnsuR has organized the ETSI DVB-RCS symposium in Brazil in 2004/2005/2007, the 1st SatLabs symposium at ESA/Estec in 2005 and the 1st Middle East SatLabs Symposium in Dubai in 2006.

AnsuR people has also initiated, co-founded and chaired the ETSI BSM Work Group, and is presently chairing the DVB-RCS work Group for the EBU in Geneva. AnsuR was a partner in the FP6 SPACE project TWISTER, is an initiating partner in FP6 WISECOM (considering satellite in emergency communications) and coordinator of FP6 BRASIL SSA (supporting DVB-RCS and Rural Communications in the Latin Americas). They have also chaired the Norwegian Signal Processing Society (NORSIG) for many years and initiated the Nordic Signal Processing Symposium, still going strong.

AnsuR contributes to systems design and key technology development for major actors and bodies such as Inmarsat, the ESA and the EU Commission. We also collaborate with organizations such as EADS Astrium, German Aerospace, Nera, Unisat and Telenor. AnsuR further provides university level lecturing in Space Engineering for the University of Delft and serves on the Industry Advisory Board for the Satellite Network of Excellence (SatNEx). AnsuR comfortably operates both in the academic and the industry domains.

AnsuR also has a strong background in satellite navigation systems and digital image communications.

AnsuR Technologies AS (ART) is a private Norwegian company, SME, founded officially by experienced satellite and tele-communications people in 2005, but building on previous activities in another company founded 5 years earlier. AnsuR founders have over 150 years of substantial expertise in broadband and mobile satellite and telecommunications. AnsuR is located in the most dynamic IT Research Park in Oslo, Norway (IT Fornebu).

Communications: Satellite-Radio Networking Solutions

AnsuR’s main product focus is on IP layer hybrid networking solutions combining satellite and radio technology. A key area is GSM/UMTS and WiMAX/WiFi combinations with broadband and mobile satellite systems, e.g. DVB-RCS and BGAN. Portable and fixed solutions providing regional infrastructures via satellites are being developed in European R&D projects with some of the best players in the industry. Other important areas include multicast and satellite navigation/communications synergies. As a result of the above focus AnsuR has also developed the ASIGN image communications solution, the most optimum GPS tagged image communications for networks where a full broadband connection is missing.

Inspiration: Global Symposia & Networking

AnsuR has organized several international satellite symposia in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia on behalf of ESA, SatLabs, ETSI and the EU Commission. AnsuR has led several Specialist Task Forces for ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), it has founded and led the ETSI BSM Work Group and has contributed as ETSI representative to ESA (European Space Agency) standards activities. We frequently serve as peer reviewers for satellite papers, and serve on several technical advisory boards for conferences. Contact AnsuR for satellite symposia and wisdom.

Advice: Academic & Industry Operations

AnsuR contributes to systems design and key technology development for major actors and bodies such as Inmarsat, the ESA , UN, DVB and the EU Commission.
Specifically AnsuR is providing the Chairman for the DVB-RCS group.

We also collaborate with organizations such as EADS Astrium, German Aerospace, Unisat and Telenor. AnsuR further provide university level lecturing such as for Space Engineering for the University of Delft and serves on the Industry Advisory Board for the Satellite Network of Excellence (SatNEx). AnsuR comfortably operates both in the academic and the industry domains.

Contact AnsuR for satellite systems advice and consultancies.

Global recognition for innovative communication solutions people need.
With insight, innovation and inspiration, bridging any locations with innovative solutions for audio-visual communication over wireless and satellite networks.

IABG is a leading European technology enterprise. Our focus lies on trend-setting high technology and science applications. We plan, implement and operate. More than 1,000 experienced and committed employees offer our customers from industry and public institutions solutions in the sectors Automotive, InfoCom, Transport, Environment & Power Engineering, Aeronautics as well as Defence & Security.

IABG’s geodata service can support and advise you on all issues related to geodata or geoinformation. We can capture, process, analyze and visually present geodata from any source(s). We can generate two- or three-dimensional vector data, municipal land registry data, digital city models, terrain models and orthophoto mosaics. In our ultra-modern geodata production facilities in Dresden, we have put together the perfect team and infrastructure for handling even the most comprehensive projects. IABG researches, procures and utilizes high-resolution satellite data (e.g. from Quickbird, Ikonos, Spot, Rapid Eye, TerraSAR-X, etc.) to extract topographies, conduct stereo photogrammetric surveys and generate precise terrain models. We also use this data to create orthophotos and carry out image classification.

All our services offered are based on our long-term project experience and the utilization of the most advanced technology systems.

Our national space centre, coordinated by the European space agency ESA, offers the entire spectrum of space-specific analyses and tests under one roof. Whether rockets like Ariane 5+ Evolution, international satellite projects like CryoSat-2, Swarm, LISA Pathfinder or national projects such as SARLupe or TanDEM-X up to numerous subsystems and components – they all were comprehensively tested in our facilities prior to deployment. Our expert’s assessment of many years, as well as the variety and adaptability of our facilities make us the ideal partner for challenging product qualifications – both nationally and internationally.
