History and Contact

The idea for Spark was born in 2005 where the development began in connection with a research project for OFDM VHF transmissions at the University of Applied Sciences in Kaiserslautern. Since then, Spark was used in different DRM field trial projects where the software evolved to becoming a valuable software-defined modulator for DRM and other radio technologies. A detailed historical abstract is available here: DRMNA - Michael Feilen on DRM and Spark.
