PAT+ - Product Access Technology for Pléiades User Services

Pléiades is a French Earth Observation satellite program carried out in cooperation with Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain, and Sweden. Pléiades has also achieved the status of a "GMES Contributing Mission". PAT+ is an innovative technology for online data access to the Pléiades Ortho Products covering large geographical areas.

PAT+3 - Product Access Technology for Pléiades User Services (Phase 3)

PAT+ is an innovative software technology for online data access to the Pléiades Ortho Products covering large geographical areas and will be supplied by EOX. A requirements analysis and design study was carried out in previous project phases jointly with the designated Pléiades data distributor, the French company Spot Image. The current status of this development (spring 2010) is that EOX have completed the detailed design and performed the operational readiness review jointly with Spot Image.

PICAM - Planetary Ion Camera

The instrument PICAM is an ion mass spectrometer operating as an all-sky camera for charged particles to study the chain of processes by which neutrals are ejected from the soil, eventually ionised and transported through the environment of Mercury.

PICAM 3 - Planetary Ion Camera for the BepiColombo Mercury Planetary Orbiter

The instrument PICAM combines the features of an ion mass spectrometer with imaging capabilities for charged particles that will allow to study the chain of processes by which neutrals are ejected from the soil, eventually ionised and transported through the environment of Mercury. As a result one will better understand the formation of Mercury's tenuous atmosphere and the plasma within the cavity encompassed by its magnetic field.

PISA - Position Information System for Time- and Location-based Analysis

Within the scope of the project PISA a system will be developed which registers vehicles’ movements by utilizing GPS technology. At the same time, data about actual weather and road conditions (e.g. rainfall, ground temperature) are collected. Both are stored in a central database, which is connected to a geo-information system.

Pre-DOMIQASOL - Feasibility Study for a Distributed Orbital Measurement Instrument for Quality Assurance of Scientific Operation Space Links

The presented study is a precursor for a follow-up ASAP project aiming at the construction, test, and deployment of the designed instrument in the first phase and the collection and scientific evaluation of a large number of quality measurement in the second phase.

QCS - Quantum Correlation in Space

In this experiment entangled photon pairs were created on La Palma, Spain. Then, one of these photons was sent to Tenerife, 144 km away. Additionally, random numbers were generated on both islands so that the way the correlations of the entangled photons were measured was independent of the photons. The spatial separation and timing of these actions was precisely arranged to show the counterintuitive nature of our world. Although this work does not completely rule out any "intuitive" theory it is the single most conclusive experiment of its type at the present time.

QTS - Quantum Teleportation in Space

The aim of the QTS (Quantum Teleportation in Space) project was to bridge the gap between the laboratory setting of quantum teleportation and its future implementation in space.

QUANTUM - Quantum Entanglement in Space Experiments

Quantum entanglement (Erwin Schroedinger 1935) is one fundamental feature of quantum physics. It describes the situation, in which separate particles have only joint but no individual properties, independent from the distance from each other. This counterintuitive behaviour has led to a series of fascinating experiments.

RA-PPP - Innovative Algorithms for Rapid Precise Point Positioning

Is there a chance to achieve dm accuracy in positioning, just by means of an isolated single-frequency GNSS receiver? Which further external data has this isolated receiver to be provided with and within what time frame does the position determination converge to the requested accuracy? These are the crucial questions of Precise Point Positioning (PPP). In the project RA-PPP we show that there are several limiting factors to existing PPP algorithms and services, which rely on highly precise orbit and clock parameters.

RAPIDEM - Rapid Assessment Provision for Intelligent Disaster and Emergency Management

This project aimed at the development of information products and service structures supporting critical decision-making processes in flood disaster management for the Austrian disaster relief organisations. Time-critical data and information generation are a major factor in successful disaster management.
