JUNO/Waves - Calibration of the JUNO/Waves Antenna System
This project was dedicated to the analysis of electric field sensors as flown on board the NASA spacecraft JUNO to the gas giant Jupiter. The overarching goal of the JUNO mission is to understand Jupiter’s origin and evolution.
MERMAG - Mercury Magnetometers
MERMAG 3 - BepiColombo/Mercury Magnetometers
METTRANS - Metastable Solidification of Composites: Novel Peritectic Structures - Studies with Transparent Model Alloys
METTRANS is a complementary project that will assist the ESA-MAP project METCOMP to further study the technical requirements that have to be fulfilled, in order to perform micro gravity experiments in the DIRSOL facility of the Microgravity Science Laboratory, MSL, located in the European Columbus Model on board the ISS.
METTRANS-ISS FP - Metastable Solidification of Novel Peritectic Structures - Studies With Transparent Model Alloys: ISS Flight Preparation
The METTRANS-ISS FP project is especially dedicated to in-situ observations of morphological changes occurring near the peritectic temperature.
MMS-DFG 2 - Flight Model Development of the Digital Fluxgate Magnetometer for NASA's MMS Mission
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.
Matroshka Austria - Cosmic radiation exposure during extravehicular activities onboard ISS
The ESA Matroshka experiment was launched to theInternational Space Station (ISS) with a Russian Progressfreighter on January 29, 2004. The cooperation of 15 laboratoriesaround the world makes it the most extensive research effortin radiation dosimetry ever performed in space. The facility is aimed to simulate an astronaut’s body during an extra vehicular activity.
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.
PPP-Serve - Network Based GNSS Phase Biases to Enhance PPP Applications – A New Service Level of GNSS Reference Station Provider
The PPP-Serve project aims at the development and realization of adequate algorithms to enhance fast GNSS based point positioning at cm level.
PPos-Taxi - Efficient Taxi Allocation Based on Precise Vehicle Positioning
The project PPos-Taxi represents an innovative contribution to an efficient allocation of taxis based on precise vehicle positioning.
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.
RADIS Austria - Radiation dose distribution within the Matroshka human phantom torso onboard ISS
Resonance - Electric Field Sensors
The analysis of the electric field sensors on board the satellites of the Russian mission Resonance, which will be launched in the next decade, is the focus of this project. The aim of this mission is the investigation of wave-particle interactions and plasma dynamics in the inner magnetosphere of Earth, with the focus on phenomena occurring along the same magnetic field line and within the very same flux tube of the Earth's magnetic field. Amongst a variety of instruments and probes, several low- and high frequency electric and magnetic sensors will be on-board.
SMART-1 EPDP - Co-Investigator on Electric Propulsion Diagnostic Package (EPDP) for European SMART-1 Satellite
SOLDYN - Dynamics of Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections
In the project SOLDYN we use the unprecedented observational capabilities of the recent NASA Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) missions to investigate the physical processes in solar flares and Coronal mass ejections (CMEs).
SPICE - Experiment SPICE: Material Strength and Cohesion of Martian Soil
The aim of the SPICE project was firstly to develop sensors andtechniques suitable for in-situ measurements of soil strength ona surface platform on Mars. A second goal was the establishmentof a soil model for dry granular materials which can typically befound on Mars.
STEREO-WAVES antennas - Reception properties in the quasi-static frequency range
The project is dedicated to analyze the antennas of the WAVES instrument on board of the two STEREO spacecraft.
TMIS - Topographic Mars Information System
One of the instruments on board of the European Mars Express Spacecraft is the HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera). The project group developed the topographic information system TMIS - arelational spatial data catalogue - for managing, archiving and distributing the captured images.
