Graduated Projects

At Telespazio Germany, graduated projects are those that have successfully progressed through the first three phases of our internal Innovation and Product Development Process:

  1. Idea Generation
  2. Exploration
  3. Scaling-up

However, as we believe in continuous innovation and improvement, "graduated" does not mean the end of the innovation journey. For us, all our projects are also building blocks which allow us to transfer knowledge and technologies between different projects, products, services and domains.

Graduated projects that are now being exploited within different departments in the company include:


DIDIT stands for Distributed Detection, Identification and Tracking of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), which most often are drones.

The initial idea for DIDIT originated in 2016 when small drones became a mass product and first incidents caused by clueless, careless or criminal (3C) drone pilots were registered. Following the initial idea, various Proofs of Concept (PoCs) were initiated and further modular development took place over a period of several years.

Now DIDIT is a multi-sensor system, and its modular design allows scaling according to the customers’ needs, as well as integration of new types of sensors in the future.

The components of the current system are a central processing unit fusing the various sensor data, an array of static cameras with short range for monitoring of court yards, rotatable and focusable PTZ cameras with long range and radio direction finders. All components, apart from the integrated PTZ camera, are the intellectual property of Telespazio Germany. The integration of micro-doppler radar is prepared through the implementation of the Asterix protocol. 

Continuous innovation and improvement

In 2021, the second frequency band (5.8GHz) was integrated as monitoring of only 2.4GHz was not sufficient anymore due to the evolution of drone communication protocols. Another new feature implemented in 2022 is the measurement of the height of a detected drone as the third dimension of its position, making DIDIT stand out even more.

Use Cases

The use cases for the system are vast. However, most implementations serve to protect prisons, airports, satellite antennas campus and energy facilities. The system is also used on a temporary basis to assess risk and threat levels on specific premises to decide on the need for continued protection.


EASE-Rise is designed to simplify the management of large constellations, cubesats and small satellites. 

Starting out as "Enable" in 2019, this product has been developed to fulfil the needs of the so-called New Space sector. Companies in this sector are characterised, among other things, by being faster, more efficient and more economical in the development of products for space missions, giving the entire industry a new push. 

New Space companies require a unique, innovative and high value solution that can take them to market faster and at a lower cost than in-house development. And that is precisely what the cloud-based EASE-Rise accomplishes: It is a game-changer.

EASE-Rise comes in different versions:

1) Software

It is the world’s first end-to-end platform for operations that is accessible to the New Space market in a pay-per-use model. It is cloud-native, low-cost and agile. It centralises in one place anything you need to run your mission. It will bring disruption and cost reduction on the ground segment and space operations.

2) Smart Operations as a Service (SOAAS) Platform

Some customers do not want to do everything by themselves. They prefer to outsource ground operations and focus solely on their business and payload. For them, EASE-Rise is the platform for the complete outsourcing of Ground Operations with unprecedented levels of technical and economic efficiency.
