FEEP - Austrian FEEP Technology

The Austrian FEEP (Field-Emission-Electric-Propulsion) Technology for space application derived from the chargecontrol units developed for former space projects by ARC Seibersdorf research has been further developed since the Austrian FEEP Cooperation was founded. It has reached a technical status which promises to be very attractive forupcoming projects within the ESA Earth Observation- and Scientific Programme as well as the developing commercial market.

FEEP Cluster - Generic FEEP Cluster Qualification

The goal of this research task is to demonstrate the long operating capabilities required for such missions that may exceed several thousands of hours as well as to build a cluster of several emitters that can still be operated by a single high voltage power supply. This cluster has to comply with increasing thrust demands by the satellites.

FRESSCO - Searching the Link Between Fretting Tests and Shaker Tests for Cold Welding

The project covers a detailed investigation of fretting phenomena during launch. The main challenge is to simulate conditions expected during the launch of a satellite. One part (one material) is subjected to very high acceleration and frequency while a second moves "freely" on it. Furthermore, the project will cover a review of requirements for testing, design, set-up and verification.

HERSCHEL/PACS - The Austrian Participation in the ESA-Cornerstone Mission HERSCHEL: On-board Data Reduction and Compression

The Herschel Space Observatory (formerly know as FIRST, theFar Infra-Red Space Telescope), a cornerstone of ESA's Space Horizon 2000 programme, will for the first time facilitate the investigation of the far infrared and submillimetre radio regime of the electromagnetic spectrum, which is not accessible from the ground. In this wavelength range the primary research goals will be in the fields of stellar evolution, development of planetary systems, interstellar matter and the origin of galaxies.

HPS - High Performance Superinsulation for Long Term Vacuum Stability

Within this project we want to perform a research and development programme concerning specific thermal insulation for use in vacuum insulated double wall steel tank systems for storage of liquid gas as Helium or Hydrogen. Such tank systems shall be used e.g. in medical applications or hydrogen propelled cars. Hydrogen propelled cars may become important for the deployment of sustainable energy sources.

I-Game NG - Integrated Telemetry and GIS-System for Wildlife Management Next Generation

The project aimed at developing a telemetry system based on GPS and GSM technology which provides generally higher data rates due to additional energy generation on the animal.

ISS-SLEEP-KIT - Sleeping Bag for the International Space Station

The aim was to investigate the feasibility of designing and testing a sleeping bag for ISS. The methodology used included the fabrication of a prototype from material used on ISS such as Nomex-based textiles. The development of the sleeping bag involved a total of three design iterations based on feedback from European astronauts.

Metallic Melts 2 - Electrical Resistivity Measurement of High Temperature Metallic Melts - 2

This project has directly continued the research done in the frame of its preceding project "Electrical Resistivity Measurement of High Temperature Metallic Melts". Unlike its predecessor, it focuses on the measurements of alloys. The pulse heating setup at TU Graz serves as a benchmark for the results obtained from the levitation setup of DLR. The latter is designed to be carried out in microgravity environment. At this stage, parabolic flights with prototypes prepare for a future mission aboard the ISS.
