High Density Power Processing Unit for the upgraded Indium FEEP Nano Thruster
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.
Optical Pulse Shaping for power efficient transmission
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).
Correlator for passive reflectometry on Cubesat
Particle Accumulation in the JEREMI Experiment: Definition of Necessary Flow and Particle Parameters
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+ 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.
Permafrost in Iceland - Climate Change Impact on Permafrost Development and Resulting Mass Movment Processes
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.
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.
BepiColombo Planetary Ion Camera 4
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.
