Spaceborne Environmental Monitoring of Alpine Processes
The R&D activities within SERMER deal with the hardware of the viscosity sensor prototype, the readout, and the interpretation of the sensor signals with respect to the ongoing processes within the experiment to be monitored.
The SGIS project started with the analysis of future on-board and terrestrial interference scenarios, the analysis and identification of interference suppression techniques suitable for implementation with space technology, and the isolation of candidate solutions.
The aim of the project is the integration of general-purpose PCI sample cards in SIECAMS for supporting standard spectrum monitoring and demodulation measurement tasks on a highly competitive level in terms of performance and price as well as a reduction of the required equipment space. Furthermore, it is the aim to provide a generic interface to import digitized data of different resolution and sampling rates in order to support standard digitization equipment from different manufacturers. The current SIECAMS Client Server architecture will be enhanced by an additional Web-Server hosting the web-application.
The most important indicators for the flight performance of a ski jumper are the flight trajectory itself and the corresponding velocity. Due to the fact that an accurate position and velocity information along the flight trajectory is available for coaches and athletes shortly after the jump, new and important analysis methods of the jump performance are made possible. Therefore, the main objective of the project SKISPRUNG is the precise determination of these two indicators - the position and the velocity along the flight trajectory at each epoch.
Data storage, access and transfer methods of multidimensional data cubes based on ASCAT soil moisture data
The objective of this study was to assess the requirements of past and near future space missions and to conduct a technology and topology survey. The results of this survey allowed selecting concepts for power electronics building blocks, with the help of which spaceborne motors, that drive different kinds of mechanisms, can be controlled.
The aim of this project was to investigate Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) fuelled with carbon monoxide in order to generate performance data which can subsequently be used for design studies of such power systems.
In the project SOLDYN we use the unprecedented observational capabilities of the recent NASA Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) missions to investigate the physical processes in solar flares and Coronal mass ejections (CMEs).
Solar Orbiter wave observation program in the helIosphere
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.
Environmental space geodesy: detection of changes in glacier mass from time-variable gravity
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.
