Prof. Dr. sc. nat. Christoph Günther
The Chair for Communications and Navigation is part of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technische Universität München and deals mainly with the fundamentals of satellite navigation and its applications. Additional research in satellite communications has recently started.
The teachings of the chair focuses on problems arising in the field of satellite navigation, in close relationship to Galileo, the European Global Navigation Satellite System. Topics also include advanced techniques like Differential Navigation. The research work in satellite navigation contributes to the foundation of future positioning algorithms like Carrier-Phase Positioning. Research interests in the field of satellite communications are about geostationary data relays and their field of applications.
The Institute cooperates closely with the Institute for Communications and Navigation at the DLR and ANAVS - Advanced Navigation Solutions GmbH.
The Institute hosts the Student Satellite Initiative Munich (SSIMUC).
