Trans Atmospheric Operation was founded in 2002 by Prof. Dr. Bernd Kröplin. TAO represents a broad knowledge including lightweight structures, membranes and composites, and adaptive structures. Structural design and control of machinery and structures belong as well to the scope of TAO as simulation of coupled problems with finite elements. TAO is internationally involved in the design and manufacturing of high altitude platforms for telecommunication and surveillance and deals as well with inflated structures on ground and in the air.
