What we do

DiGOS offers comprehensive expertise and has a broad knowledge of system engineering and implementing field-proven geodetic & geophysical observation systems

Laser Stations

High-Precision Satellite & Space Debris Observations

DiGOS is the first stop for Satellite Laser Ranging Systems and Optical Ground Stations.

The systems are based on COTS components from the best European and international suppliers, and are operated with our own SCOPE control software. DiGOS has realized various complete turn-key systems for customers around the world. Built on both the solid heritage of our own developments and the newest developments of the international scientific community, the DiGOS systems continue to set the state of the art. Apart from the traditional SLR systems, DiGOS also offers Space Debris Tracking Systems, and Optical Ground Stations for Laser Communications, Quantum Key Distribution, and other applications.


Seismic Measurement Equipment and Installation Support

DiGOS provides seismic measurement equipment and installation support for research, monitoring and civil engineering activities worldwide. Our seismic data recorder DATA-CUBE³ and the plug & play add-on CCUBE for real-time data streaming are the basis of our product portfolio. Over the years we have developed various tailored solutions for our customers that support almost every seismic sensor on the market as well as various infra-sound sensors. Our field-proven devices and solutions are continuously used in more than 50 countries around the world in all geographic regions including the challenging Arctic, Antarctic and desert environments.


Custom Solutions for your Specific Requirements

We realize that many of our customers have special requirements for their research or operational systems. Therefore, we offer tailored technical solutions which exactly match our customer’s needs. As a system integration with in-house software and hardware developments, we are able to efficiently adapt our products to different needs and specific environments. We also offer consulting services, staff training and maintanance / repair of existing systems. Get in touch with us to discuss your ideas!

Who we are

We are experts in system integration

DiGOS is a system integrator in the domain of geophysical & geodetic observation systems. We are an interdisciplinary team of computer scientist, engineers, geophysicists, mechatronics and affiliated experts with unique technical expertise.

We offer the complete chain of project execution tasks from analyzing and elaborating the initial idea with the customer until final deployment and maintenance. Solid planning, structured development and related product assurance methods are applied as a standard in all our projects.

Our main activities

Turn-key solutions for Satellite & Space Debris Laser Ranging, Optical Ground Stations, and remote seismic stations. 

  • After almost ten years “on the hill”, DiGOS is leaving the beloved Telegrafenberg Campus and moving to their own office spaces in Potsdam-Babelsberg....

  • In an extensive SLR validation campaign using both green and infrared wavelengths, DiGOS has verified the excellent performance of the ESA laser ranging system on Tenerife. Supported by staff training sessions, operation is now handed over to ESA....

  • DiGOS is proud to announce that it has been selected by the Galileo consortium to develop the first GNSS laser ranging system (GLRS). Over the course of the next three years, a dedicated GNSS SLR system will be developed and commissioned, setting new standards in reliability and usability.   ...

Project Funding

DiGOS Potsdam GmbH is expanding the SCOPE SW in the direction of automation of SLR stations. An innovative aspect and goal is to fully automatically acquire, filter/analyse, post-process and then send the SLR station measurement products to data centres for final trajectory analysis and trajectory prediction to significantly optimise the performance of SLR systems in their daily satellite observation routine. This innovation, as well as an already completed innovative project involving the development of a laser safety subsystem, is an important milestone towards automation of SLR stations.
The project is supported by the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Energy of the Federal State of Brandenburg (MWAE) from funds of the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Federal State of Brandenburg.
