European Space Agency (ESA) Supports Cactus Project TAURUS for 5G NR SDR Modem Development

The European Space Agency (ESA) has chosen our project, TAURUS, for the development of an advanced 5G NR Software-Defined Radio (SDR) modem under the “Space for 5G” Strategic Programmatic Lines. This initiative is part of the Connectivity & Secure Communications (CSC) and ARTES programme. TAURUS is also receiving support from the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO) and IMEC (IMEC R&D and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies).

Key Objectives:

Our TAURUS modem is crafted to be cloud-native and ready for deployment across a diverse range of hardware platforms. Whether in the cloud, at the edge, within a fixed or mobile terminal, TAURUS provides unmatched flexibility and adaptability.

Tensor Defined Radio Components:

Powered by Cactus’s proprietary technology, Tensor Defined Radio, TAURUS incorporates innovative features ensuring enhanced performance, reliability, and efficiency for vital wireless modem functions like decoding. This sets a new standard in space communications.

A Milestone in Cactus’s Space Roadmap:

ESA’s selection of Cactus for this project signifies a substantial achievement in our Space roadmap activities. It underscores our dedication to pushing technological boundaries and contributing to the advancement of space exploration.
