BRITE-AUSTRIA - Development, Test, Launch and Operations of the Nanosatellite TUGSAT-1/BRITE-Austria for Asteroseismology
In 2011 the TUGSAT-1/BRITE-Austria nanosatellite successfully completed its flight readiness review. The BRITE (BRIght Target Explorer) mission has the scientific aim to investigate the brightness variations of massive luminous stars with unprecedented precision.
The BRITE (BRIght Target Explorer) mission aims at the long-term investigation of the brightness variation of massive, luminous stars by differential photometry.
The main goal is to optimise the cost function of such a commercial ASIC component qualification for space use by understanding all technological constraints. The results enable us to guide and support a subcontractor, which is inexperienced in space technologies, due to its background in the terrestrial market.
CASIMO2 is a seamless enhancement of the carrier monitoring system based on and driven by customer requirements concerning the implementation of DSP based polarization discrimination measurements combined with enhanced demodulation functionality and satellite performance measurements.
The project comprised the identification of existing technologies such as signal processors, general purpose microprocessors as well as ASICs and FPGAs, and the design of possible DSP architectures, two of which were evaluated in the course of the project.
The aim of this project was to raise the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of a new type of scalar magnetometer called Coupled Dark State Magnetometer (CDSM). Advantages of the CDSM are the uncomplicated sensor design, the high dynamic range of more than 6 decades and the omni-directional measurement capability without additional design complexity.
In the frame of this project a feasibility study of a new type of scalar magnetometer called Coupled Dark State Magnetometer (CDSM) was carried out. It included the investigation of its technical readiness and scientific merit for space applications, the concept for a TRL 5 (component and/or breadboard validation in relevant environment) compliant design, a detailed investigation of key components as well as the identification of possible challenges for a reliable operation in space.
The overall aim of CHAMPCLIM is to exploit research satellite CHAMPsradio occultation data in the best possible manner for their most challenging application, which is climate monitoring.
The clue idea of COALA.NT is to stronger involve the engine driver in the decisions of the operational traffic management. COALA.NT is a bi-directional, detection-based, innovative information system for operators and enginedrivers on railroad lines with small traffic volume.
In the project the feasibility of coatings as molecular contamination traps to protect optically sensitive or contamination critical payloads was investigated.
The CORD activity aims at preserving the competitiveness of RUAG Space in the context of GPS receivers for future missions by performing the delta developments necessary to obtain a commodity GPS receiver, compliant with most of the future precise orbit determination (POD) receivers’ requirements.
CoReH2O will deliver detailed spatial data on key parameters of the global snow and ice masses for applications in climate research and hydrology.
The study aimed to investigate the actual requirements of manufacturers of SADMs, motors and satellite primes and to build and test a breadboard incorporating an innovative voltage control concept.
ARC Seibersdorf research GmbH was selected to develop and produce ion emitters for the experiment COSIMA (CometarySecondary Ion Mass Analyser). Scope of this experiment is to analyse cometary matter e. g. to find out what molecules existed shortly after the "big bang". There may be molecules, composed of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen, which might build blocks of amino acids, the basic molecules of life.
DeGe - Deployable Getaway for the International Space Station (ISS) - Deployable Crew-Quarter-Cabin and Sleep-/Work-Equipment for Temporary Use on ISS and for Future Applications in 0-Gravity Environments
The Deployable Getaway (DeGe) is a deployable crew quarter, which can be unfolded into an astronaut’s crew cabin using a "folding box principle". In folded configuration two of them can be stored in one International Standard Payload Rack on ISS. The size of the unfolded cabin corresponds to those of the crew-quarter cabins actually in use. In contrast to the integrated existing cabins the DeGe can be positioned at any suitable location on ISS.
