There are 223 results.
The present emulation facility allows for efficient testing of the software running on a micro-processor that controls the Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) while the ASIC is still being manufactured at the foundry.
The aim of the SPICE project was firstly to develop sensors andtechniques suitable for in-situ measurements of soil strength ona surface platform on Mars. A second goal was the establishmentof a soil model for dry granular materials which can typically befound on Mars.
The objective of the activity is to evaluate the feasibility and pinpoint the critical areas of new, high-performance signal processing concepts, which are necessary to fulfil future spacemission requirements in the area of science, earth observation, and telecom applications.
The project is dedicated to analyze the antennas of the WAVES instrument on board of the two STEREO spacecraft.
The present activity aims at supporting inevitable product evolution by providing a framework for Software Verification and Qualification (VQ), implementing it in Austrian Aerospace’s (AAE’s) GNSS receiver software and demonstrating its suitability by applying it to the transition from a receiver providing on-board spacecraft navigation functionality to a qualified scientific precise orbit determination instrument.
The present activity is the follow-up of a study already performed within ASAP 4. The first part, concentrating on the simulation based software qualification platform, was successfully finished. The second part comprises the remaining activities, mainly the target based software qualification platform, i.e. hardware in the loop testing and qualification.
The TCTM project aimed to establish a single definition source for the TC/TM interface and to automatically generate the respective documentation, SRDB, flight software and test equipment software to reduce the NRE effort for future instrument developments.
Automated satellite-based time-measurement for professional motor sports, skiing, and public sports events. The project further includes integrated tracking services for search and rescue and tracking of wild-life animals.
TM/TC Modem - Telemetry and Telecommand Modem and Interface Processing Equipment for EGSE and Ground Stations
This ASAP 8 project is designed to enhance the flexibility and functionality of our TT&C SCOE and Payload EGSE (Electrical Ground Support Equipment) solutions, but also to extend our business to the ground station area by elaborating the detailed requirements, system and detail design for a modem, both for EGSE and ground station systems. The concepts and design will be validated by practical investigations and evaluations.
One of the instruments on board of the European Mars Express Spacecraft is the HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera). The project group developed the topographic information system TMIS - arelational spatial data catalogue - for managing, archiving and distributing the captured images.
The project focused on an automated areomorphic (i.e. Mars-related morphological) analysis based on DTM data. Automation has become inevitable due to the large amount of available data.
TMIS.morph, a project in the sequence of TMIS (Topographic Mars Information System) projects, was the Austrian contribution to the international collaboration of “HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera) on MEX”, lead by Professor Gerhard Neukum (FU Berlin). The TMIS projects, beside providing a solid data management background of the huge datasets of the HRSC imagery and the derivative digital terrain models (DTMs) for the scientific research team, aimed at unconventional visualization, evaluation and automated extraction of selected Martian topographic features.
TMIS.plus.II - Maintenance and Extension of the Topographic Mars Information System (TMIS) and Processing and Analysis of Terrain Information from Mars Derived from HRSC Imagery
TMIS has recently been re-implemented and contains data covering some three quarters of the planet's surface. Besides maintaining the data catalogue, I.P.F. also uses the Mars DTM data for research activities in DTM analysis. In the course of the current project the focus is on areomorphologic analysis, in particular on generating highly informative visualisations.
TripleM - Development of Methods for the Retrieval of Hydrology and Agricultural Parameters from Multi-temporal, Multi-sensoral and Multi-resolution Satellite Remote Sensing Data
Within this project multi-seasonal, multi-sensor and multi-resolution (TripleM) image data sets are investigated with respect to their operational and scientific utilization for agricultural and hydrological applications.
Based on the multi-layer insulation technology for spacecraft, this technology transfer project focuses on the development of a novel, inert multi-layer thermal insulation, which satisfies the applicable requirements and standards for cryogenic vessels used for storage and transport of liquefied technical gases such as He, Ar, N2 and O2 , with respect to oxygen compatibility.
Based on the multi-layer insulation technology for spacecraft, this technology transfer project about non-flammable super-insulation focuses on the development of a novel, inert multi-layer thermal insulation, which satisfies the applicable requirements and standards for cryogenic vessels used for storage and transport of liquefied technical gases such as He, Ar, N 2 and O 2 , with respect to oxygen compatibility.
The present project has aimed at developing the critical building blocks of a Versatile High-end Signal Generator which can be used directly or only with few necessary modifications for a variety of applications. This approach has allowed Austrian Aerospace to acquire competence with new technologies and space components so the challenging technical problems can be solved in an innovative and forward-looking manner.
Venus Express (VEX) is the first mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) to Venus. It aims at a global investigation of the Venusian atmosphere and plasma environment and addresses several important aspects of the geology and surface physics. Its payload comprises seven scientific instruments with heritage from Mars Express and Rosetta. VEX-MAG is a space qualified magnetometer with two sensors to measure the magnetic field magnitude and direction.
The physical RF link of VSAT stations, especially the quality of the MF-TDMA return link, is crucial for ensuring high quality satellite communication. An accurate aligned antenna minimizes interference and secures the best physical way of maximizing the Bit/Hz/Year ratio. The SIECAMS VSAT monitoring system allows terminal per terminal measurement of RF quality parameters dedicated to MF-TDMA traffic transmitted from VSAT satellite networks without service interruption.
