There are 223 results.
The ASAP 7 MMS-DFG 2 project covered the assembly, calibration and integration of a total of four Flight Models and one Spare Model. Calibration showed that the flight models fully met all performance requirements. The intrinsic noise of the magnetometer at 1 Hz is 5 pT/sqrt(Hz) and thus a factor of two lower than required for the MMS mission.
MountainNet - Management of Natural Resources in Alpine Regions by Advanced Remote Sensing Techniques
To assess and monitor alpine landscape and hydrological parameters and thus to serve as the basis for planning actions, the project concentrates on methods and algorithms for alpine land use and land cover based on SAR, alpine land use and land cover based on VHR optical data and hydrological applications in alpine regions based on SAR.
MULTICLIM - From CHAMP towards Multi-Satellite Climate Monitoring Based on the MetOp and COSMIC Missions
The overarching goal of the MULTICLIM project was to prepare for global monitoring of the climate evolution of the Earth’s atmosphere with high accuracy and consistency and thereby help to improve the ability to detect, attribute, and predict climate variability and change.
The concept study of "Nano-composites and high-performance materials for space", NanoMatSpace, was worked out in order to evaluate the possibilities and potentials in Austria in the area of high-performance materials for future application in space. Special attention was put on the technology maturity level of new materials and of high-performance materials, particularly that of nano-composites.
NAV-CAR 2 aims at making car navigation more robust while at the same time providing more accurate and precise information compared to existing navigation solutions. The focus lies on more accurate robust positioning and map referencing in order to be able to provide lane specific positioning information for traffic and navigation information services.
The feasibility study for NAV-CAR focussed on the potential benefits for the services to be facilitated by the availability of high-quality, high precision positioning data allowing lane-specific services.
NAVLAS - Improved GNSS Positioning Solution via Integration of Information Products from Laserscanning Data
The project NAVLAS aimed to develop digital information layers and software concepts for signal receivers based on the integrating analysis of GNSS-measurements and laserscanning-data.
In NAVWAT, a system concept was developed which aims at supporting the ship crew of inland water vessels when navigating through narrow surroundings (in the vicinity of locks, bridges, harbours). The proposed concept utilizes modern GNSS and augmentation infrastructure to provide accurate position and velocity information as well as integrity information to the ship crew. This precise position information should be related to the information contained in the onboard Inland ENC (Electronic Navigational Chart).
NAVWAT 2 was a follow-up project of NAVWAT funded within ASAP 6. The main objective of NAVWAT 2 was the development of an innovative navigation system for inland waterway vessels to help reduce the risk of collisions with infrastructure along the rivers.
The NEMO project aimed at investigating the suitability of a new type of Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) magnet for space application and the issues to be addressed in this context. Since small electric motors conventionally use permanent magnets as rotors, their material properties have a huge impact on motor performance.
NEOS-QUICK - Testing of Novel Earth Observation Systems for Supporting Quality Control Activities required by Kyoto Protocol
The objective of NEOS-QUICK was to develop novel Earth Observation applications for the mapping of Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) parameters as specified by the reporting standards of the Kyoto Protocol.
The Power Subsystem Special Check-Out Equipment (SCOE) is a central component of the Electrical Ground Support Equipment. It provides power and control signals to the satellite during assembly, testing and launch preparation until just a few seconds prior to lift-off. The activity aims at reducing the manufacturing complexity of the overall Power SCOE system emphasising standardised components (leading to reduced costs and improved reliability) and making the system operator’s user interface more intuitive (leading to easier operations procedures and to a high acceptance by the test engineers).
The objective of this project was to contribute to the development of key enabling technologies to support expanding opportunities.
The NextNav project prepared the next generation of receivers by performing mission analyses, establishing requirements, defining the verification environment and characterizing the RUAG Space GPS POD receivers for various types of applications. In addition, design trade-offs and architectural design concepts were elaborated.
ODILIA - Mobility of Visually Impaired Pedestrians by User-Oriented Information and Satellite-Based Navigation
The aim of ODILIA is the development of a demonstrator navigation system for blind and visually impaired people. Regarding all system components, the system is tailored to the special user requirements.
Consequently the Austrian EGNOS data server (OEGNOS) shall provide an EGNOS data stream using authenticated terrestrial communication means and integrate additional local and regional meteorological information (ionospheric and tropospheric information) to provide higher position accuracy and continuous service availability. Specialised hardware or software shall be avoided, instead, standardized protocols shall be used in order to favour market penetration.
The motivation for the ASAP 6 project OEGNOS 2 was the conclusion of the business plan of OEGNOS indicated that the service idea is viable, if the technical feasibility can be shown.
Good quality UV maps are only achievable by using satellite information and satellite data. The present project deals with the validation of the UV products retrieved by the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) instrument on board of NASA/EOS AURA satellite. The project is closely connected to the ESA project (ID 2945) “Validation of OMI products over Europe with ground-based UV instruments”.
The ONE-SAT-ILS project aimed to select one or two of the discussed solutions with the potential for implementation in a product. Potential was defined to mean technical feasibility in terms of effort (time and money) but also in terms of accuracy and performance. Furthermore, the chosen solutions were implemented in a prototype in order to evaluate the potential described above. The results obtained from ONE-SAT-ILS will be integrated in the Siemens ILS system in a subsequent project.
Astronauts experience grave problems with blood pressure stability when upright (orthostasis) after space flight. This is because of cardiovascular "deconditioning" due to the absence of gravitational effects on the blood circulation. The project deals with limits of orthostatic stability in humans and deconditioning effects due to bed rest immobilisation (simulated weightlessness).
