METTRANS - Metastable Solidification of Composites: Novel Peritectic Structures - Studies with Transparent Model Alloys
METTRANS is a complementary project that will assist the ESA-MAP project METCOMP to further study the technical requirements that have to be fulfilled, in order to perform micro gravity experiments in the DIRSOL facility of the Microgravity Science Laboratory, MSL, located in the European Columbus Model on board the ISS.
METTRANS-ISS FP - Metastable Solidification of Novel Peritectic Structures - Studies With Transparent Model Alloys: ISS Flight Preparation
The METTRANS-ISS FP project is especially dedicated to in-situ observations of morphological changes occurring near the peritectic temperature.
MGM – Mobile Geo Memory (Feasibility Study) - Searchable Mobile Memory for Geo-Referenced Personal Information Retrieval
The Mobile Geo-Memory (MGM) would, for the first time, create an integrated, interactive system for mobile users that will not only deliver to basic geo-referenced information, but will also offer the opportunity for everybody to become a provider of geo-referenced data – for personal use and to share within a content community: memories captured with different media, hints and personal experience will be geo-referenced, time-stamped and annotated with text and keyword information.
The aim of the project is to theoretically derive and design an innovative fault tolerant controller function for mission critical applications to be introduced into the already existing processor module.
MicroColumbus - Effects of the Space Environment and Microgravity on Cells of Halophilic Archaebacteria
Following the successful installation of the Columbus laboratory on the International Space Station (ISS) in February 2008, the ESA facility EXPOSE-E was used to compare the adaptation and survival strategies of microorganisms from different terrestrial habitats. Several extremophilic microorganisms were tested, including the halophilic archaeon Halococcus dombrowskii, which was isolated from a 250-million-year-old Alpine salt deposit in Austria. Samples were returned after 18 months of exposure tothe space environment.
The MIDAS AFM - modelling and calibration of a space-born atomic force microscope
Minimal lubrication coating based on polymerized ionic liquids
The ASAP 7 MMS-DFG 2 project covered the assembly, calibration and integration of a total of four Flight Models and one Spare Model. Calibration showed that the flight models fully met all performance requirements. The intrinsic noise of the magnetometer at 1 Hz is 5 pT/sqrt(Hz) and thus a factor of two lower than required for the MMS mission.
DFG magnetometer aboard NASA's MMS mission: System level testing, commissioning and advanced data processing
MountainNet - Management of Natural Resources in Alpine Regions by Advanced Remote Sensing Techniques
To assess and monitor alpine landscape and hydrological parameters and thus to serve as the basis for planning actions, the project concentrates on methods and algorithms for alpine land use and land cover based on SAR, alpine land use and land cover based on VHR optical data and hydrological applications in alpine regions based on SAR.
MULTICLIM - From CHAMP towards Multi-Satellite Climate Monitoring Based on the MetOp and COSMIC Missions
The overarching goal of the MULTICLIM project was to prepare for global monitoring of the climate evolution of the Earth’s atmosphere with high accuracy and consistency and thereby help to improve the ability to detect, attribute, and predict climate variability and change.
The concept study of "Nano-composites and high-performance materials for space", NanoMatSpace, was worked out in order to evaluate the possibilities and potentials in Austria in the area of high-performance materials for future application in space. Special attention was put on the technology maturity level of new materials and of high-performance materials, particularly that of nano-composites.
NAV-CAR 2 aims at making car navigation more robust while at the same time providing more accurate and precise information compared to existing navigation solutions. The focus lies on more accurate robust positioning and map referencing in order to be able to provide lane specific positioning information for traffic and navigation information services.
The feasibility study for NAV-CAR focussed on the potential benefits for the services to be facilitated by the availability of high-quality, high precision positioning data allowing lane-specific services.
NAVLAS - Improved GNSS Positioning Solution via Integration of Information Products from Laserscanning Data
The project NAVLAS aimed to develop digital information layers and software concepts for signal receivers based on the integrating analysis of GNSS-measurements and laserscanning-data.
In NAVWAT, a system concept was developed which aims at supporting the ship crew of inland water vessels when navigating through narrow surroundings (in the vicinity of locks, bridges, harbours). The proposed concept utilizes modern GNSS and augmentation infrastructure to provide accurate position and velocity information as well as integrity information to the ship crew. This precise position information should be related to the information contained in the onboard Inland ENC (Electronic Navigational Chart).
NAVWAT 2 was a follow-up project of NAVWAT funded within ASAP 6. The main objective of NAVWAT 2 was the development of an innovative navigation system for inland waterway vessels to help reduce the risk of collisions with infrastructure along the rivers.
The NEMO project aimed at investigating the suitability of a new type of Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) magnet for space application and the issues to be addressed in this context. Since small electric motors conventionally use permanent magnets as rotors, their material properties have a huge impact on motor performance.
NEOS-QUICK - Testing of Novel Earth Observation Systems for Supporting Quality Control Activities required by Kyoto Protocol
The objective of NEOS-QUICK was to develop novel Earth Observation applications for the mapping of Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) parameters as specified by the reporting standards of the Kyoto Protocol.
The Power Subsystem Special Check-Out Equipment (SCOE) is a central component of the Electrical Ground Support Equipment. It provides power and control signals to the satellite during assembly, testing and launch preparation until just a few seconds prior to lift-off. The activity aims at reducing the manufacturing complexity of the overall Power SCOE system emphasising standardised components (leading to reduced costs and improved reliability) and making the system operator’s user interface more intuitive (leading to easier operations procedures and to a high acceptance by the test engineers).
