Interdisciplinary Centre Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT)

Facilities at SnT

State-of-the-art Equipment for Hardware and Software Testing

Our centre is home to more than ten labs that researchers can use to validate their ideas in computer vision, satellite communications, nanosatellites, autonomous driving, aerial and orbital robotics, server networks, cybersecurity, as well as artificial intelligence.

Our Labs

  • 360Lab

    The first thematic research laboratory focusing on smart mobility, it serves as an umbrella for research projects sharing common equipment and complementary expertise, to conduct strategic and collaborative research in the broader area of mobility innovation.

  • 6GSpaceLab

    The 6GSpaceLab gives researchers and students the opportunity to test and validate their algorithms in conditions that reflect the challenges and constraints of real-world communications platforms. It explores research topics such as precoded downlink beams, ISL data/payload synchronisation and DVB-S2/5G NR communication standards.

  • AeRoLab

    A 5x5x5m flight arena comprising a fleet of multicopters and different types of sensors. This lab is also equipped with a motion capture system and allows to test, evaluate and validate autonomous navigation approaches on perception, state estimation, control and trajectory planning. This is a cooperation between SnT and the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine of the University of Luxembourg.

  • CommLab

    The CommLab is used for research and testing of both satellite and terrestrial communication systems. Activities carried out in this facility are mostly focused on wireless communication systems to test and validate digital signal processing algorithms, while facing real implementation issues and constraints.

  • Computer Vision Lab at SnT

    Computer Vision Lab

    This lab provides state-of-the-art facilities for controlled measurements, testing, and validation, essential to support experimental research in computer vision and imaging. Research activities are focused on 3D sensing and analysis, with applications ranging from security to assistive computer vision for healthcare.

  • Concurrent Design Facility

    Concurrent Design Facility

    Concurrent engineering is replacing traditional sequential design. Instead of having engineers work on their own, and in consecutive steps on a project, concurrent engineering calls for a collaborative and agile approach. They use connected workstations, and a flexible lab design that changes to suit applications such as space system design, strategic forecasting, space architecture, and feasibility studies.

  • CubeSat Lab at SnT


    CubeSats are the catalysts of the NewSpace industry. Thanks to the countless applications they lend themselves to, and their reduced cost, these nanosatellites have spurred a new space race. In this lab, researchers and Interdisciplinary Space Master students can design, develop, and test their own custom nanosatellites.

  • Lunalab at SnT


    The LunaLab is one of the few facilities in the world that simulates lunar conditions for testing applications such as autonomous navigation of lunar robots, multi-robot interaction, lunar surface extraction, manipulation and transportation, additive manufacturing and regolith analysis.

  • Radar Lab

    The Radar Lab focuses on implementation of optimised signal processing strategies for modern radar systems. It also demonstrates how radar systems are being used in new ways, such as for contactless vital sign monitoring and integrated radar and communications systems.

  • Zero-G Lab at SnT

    Zero-G Lab

    A lab to test the movement of in-orbit robotics, satellites and other spacecraft in a micro-gravity environment – similar in concept to an air hockey platform. It enables students and researchers to understand and forecast the behaviour of orbital robotics in space.
