AQA-PM - Extension of the Air-Quality Model for Austria With Satellite Based Particulate Matter Estimates
AQA issues daily forecasts of gaseous and particulate (PM10) air pollutants over Austria. The goal of this project was to improve the PM10 forecasts for Austria by integrating satellite based measurements and to provide a comprehensive product platform.
The aim of this study is to investigate all new requirements of the Galileo Signal-In-Space, to discuss appropriateimplementation possibilities into the Advanced Signal Generator, to design programmable electronic components (Field Programmable Gate Arrays, FPGAs), and carry out the respective tests.
The purpose of the BRITE-AUSTRIA / TUGSAT-1 project, funded by the Austrian Space Program, is the development of the first Austrian satellite. The scientific goal of this nanosatellite mission is the investigation of the brightness oscilla tions of massive luminous stars by differential photometry.
BRITE-AUSTRIA - Development, Test, Launch and Operations of the Nanosatellite TUGSAT-1/BRITE-Austria for Asteroseismology
In 2011 the TUGSAT-1/BRITE-Austria nanosatellite successfully completed its flight readiness review. The BRITE (BRIght Target Explorer) mission has the scientific aim to investigate the brightness variations of massive luminous stars with unprecedented precision.
The BRITE (BRIght Target Explorer) mission aims at the long-term investigation of the brightness variation of massive, luminous stars by differential photometry.
The main goal is to optimise the cost function of such a commercial ASIC component qualification for space use by understanding all technological constraints. The results enable us to guide and support a subcontractor, which is inexperienced in space technologies, due to its background in the terrestrial market.
CASIMO2 is a seamless enhancement of the carrier monitoring system based on and driven by customer requirements concerning the implementation of DSP based polarization discrimination measurements combined with enhanced demodulation functionality and satellite performance measurements.
The aim of this project was to raise the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of a new type of scalar magnetometer called Coupled Dark State Magnetometer (CDSM). Advantages of the CDSM are the uncomplicated sensor design, the high dynamic range of more than 6 decades and the omni-directional measurement capability without additional design complexity.
In the frame of this project a feasibility study of a new type of scalar magnetometer called Coupled Dark State Magnetometer (CDSM) was carried out. It included the investigation of its technical readiness and scientific merit for space applications, the concept for a TRL 5 (component and/or breadboard validation in relevant environment) compliant design, a detailed investigation of key components as well as the identification of possible challenges for a reliable operation in space.
The clue idea of COALA.NT is to stronger involve the engine driver in the decisions of the operational traffic management. COALA.NT is a bi-directional, detection-based, innovative information system for operators and enginedrivers on railroad lines with small traffic volume.
ARC Seibersdorf research GmbH was selected to develop and produce ion emitters for the experiment COSIMA (CometarySecondary Ion Mass Analyser). Scope of this experiment is to analyse cometary matter e. g. to find out what molecules existed shortly after the "big bang". There may be molecules, composed of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen, which might build blocks of amino acids, the basic molecules of life.
The function of Data Handling Systems on satellites is the collection of house keeping data for transmission to the ground (Telemetry Link) to allow the monitoring of the spacecraft status and the commanding of different spacecraft functions from the ground (Telecommand Link).
DIACERAM - High Thermal Conductive Ceramic-Diamond Substrates for Efficient Cooling of Next Generation of High Performance Space Electronics
The DIACERAM project focuses on the development of a next generation ceramic substrate material for application in electronic components.
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.
