About TriaGnoSys

TriaGnoSys was formed by three satellite communications experts to do two things. — And nothing has changed since.

The first is to play a leading part in the development of cutting-edge satellite communications technologies, either in-house or as part of international research teams. And the second is to make what is technologically doable commercially viable.


A good example is the company’s first commercial success: the development of software that enables airline passengers to use their mobile phones and internet during flights. The solution is now in use through providers such as OnAir and Thales. The key research had been carried out as part of WirelessCabin, an EU-funded ground-breaking research project.

TriaGnoSys enables communications where there is no access to terrestrial networks, such as during flights, on the sea, or in remote areas on land.

TriaGnoSys has always believed it is possible to provide satellite-based communications of similar quality and price to terrestrial communications. Our unique Vocem software provides the most efficient use of satellite time.

Our clients include leaders in their fields, including Airbus, Astra, Eutelsat, Inmarsat, MobinTeleCom, OnAir, Alcatel and Siemens.

TriaGnoSys is headquartered in Oberpfaffenhofen, near Munich in Germany, which is a European centre of excellence for satellite communications, centred around the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR), the German Aerospace Centre.

TriaGnoSys (pronounced Treea-g’no-sis) is made up of two words: tria, the Greek for three and gnosis, for knowledge. So it is named after the three researcher who founded the company: Dr. Matthias Holzbock, Dr. Axel Jahn, and Dr. Markus Werner.
