EO-NatHaz - Assessment of Potential Damage and Risk Exposure Caused by Natural Hazards with Earth Observation
EO-NatHaz has the objective to explore and exploit the utility of novel space based remote sensing techniques - on the one hand for the assessment of potential damages and economic losses and on the other hand for the derivation of risk exposures due to natural hazards.
EO-TEN has the objective to increase the operational application potential of innovative Earth observation (EO) methods having a realistic market potential in Austria and Europe for EIAs and SEAs. The focus is on improving and advancing EO methods and derived products serving to protect the environment, the population and the infrastructure itself and to develop a sustainable service component serving EIAs and SEAs.
EO4Water aims at improving methodologies to produce maps of crop water requirements at field and district scale by combining information from Earth Obsevation (EO) satellites and ground agro-meteorological data.
EPRIS - Evaluation of positioning technologies for the provision of value added services within River Information Services
EPRIS contains testing conventional and future planned positioning technologies in RIS environment to identify a "best practice"-method which is able to fulfil commercial requirements (transport management) as well as nautical and administrative requirements - navigation requirements (traffic management) related to RIS. Focus has been laid on new services (e.g. EGNOS, GALILEO) in order to consider these kinds of services in the migration paths underelaboration for the 2nd generation of River Information Services.
ESA’s ExoMars Rover Mission, is scheduled for launch in 2013 and landing on the Red Planet in late 2014 to search for signs of past and present life on Mars. One important scientific sensor is a panoramic imaging system (PanCam) mounted on the ExoMars Rover Mast. It consists of a wide angle multispectral stereo pair and a high resolution monoscopic camera.
FarmSupport - Assessing the Potential of Farmer Mobile Information Services for Agricultural Decision Support
FarmSupport aims at developing a proof-of-concept application that will provide farmers in Ethiopia and Kenya with weather forecasts and soil moisture information. This information service is intended to help farmers in making agricultural decisions. Weather information is of value to farmers, but has suffered in the past due to problems with getting the information to the farmer.
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.
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.
In the project FLEET a travel time information service based on vehicle-generated data (Floating Car Data) was developed and demonstrated for the Vienna region for the use in TrafficTelematics Systems.
The FLIXDATE project intends to develop a demonstration system for alpine ski sport traffic analysis, traffic routing and collision avoidance on ski slopes. Detection of dangerous zones and management of ski traffic based on floating ski data lead to increased safety and traffic performance on ski slopes.
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.
The goal of this project was to identify the best adhesive to avoid disbonding between metal and fibre reinforced plastic.
G2real - Galileo-based GMES Real-time Emergency Support Testbed, Real-time Exercise and Development of Services
The overall aim of G2real is to develop and test new preoperational GMES services in the field of emergency and disaster management and rescue operations by integrating software and hardware solutions developed by 11 partners in three countries (AUT, GER, ES) and by testing and utilising the possibilities of Galileo navigation.
The GALIMET project is a satellite based system, which generates warnings transmitted by mobile phones to the users in case of severe weather.
The Generic ASIC Test Environment (GATE), that has been developed in the present project, is a tool for the time-saving and cost-effective verification and validation of ASICs and FPGAs for satellite on-board electronics.
The aim of the project GeGS-TTMS is the provision of a generic uplink interface supporting different base-band equipments.
