The PERSEO project (PErsonal Radiation Shielding for intErplaetary missiOns) aimed at studying a wearable innovative radiation protection system to mitigate the effects of Solar Particle Events (SPE) on astronauts. SPE can be considered as related mainly to deterministic effects of the cosmic...
Contractor: Univ of Pavia / Contract Number: 4000111396 / Start Year: 2014
Ambient space plasma can induce electrostatic noise in a linear antenna onboard a spacecraft. The resulting quasi-thermal noise (QTN) intensity spectrum as a function of frequency depends on the plasma parameters. The phenomenon can be utilised for inferring the plasma parameters if one ...
Contractor: Finnish Meteorological Institute-Finland / Contract Number: 000108571 / Start Year: 2013
ESA has a leading role in establishing and maintaining quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) strategies in all phases of its Earth Observation (EO) missions. Expressed in the Mission Requirement Documents (MRDs) and in the Phase E Management Plan, these strategies ensure that instrument...
Contractor: ARGANS LIMITED / Contract Number: 4000106294 / Start Year: 2012
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are already used in space missions (e.g. GOCE, Swarm, Sentinel, and MetOp, among others), not only as a navigation sensor (either for autonomous orbit and attitude determination or for relative navigation) but also as a science instrument (e.g. for...
Contractor: Deimos / Contract Number: 4000107785 / Start Year: 2013
The use of helicon sources as thrusters for space propulsion has been envisaged as a robust, scalable, reliable and long-life device. The Helicon Plasma Thruster (HPT) is presented as a potentially durable, throttlable and high thrust-to-power ratio device, with intermediate specific impulse and...
Contractor: SENER INGENIERIA Y SISTEMAS SA / Contract Number: 4000107292 / Start Year: 2014
The study combined hydrologic models with multi-spectral remote sensing informationto assess the consistency of the water allocation with the actual irrigated area and crop water requirements (CWR) by refining algorithms for Irrigation Performance Indicators (IPI's). It evaluated thefrequency and...
Contractor: TU DELFT / Contract Number: 4000106573 / Start Year: 2012
The APPS study work focusses on the critical technologies required to provide both servicing and support functions to a seismometer payload located on the lunar surface. Although the baseline payload (and by extension the reference mission) has specific requirements, the technology focus of the...
Contractor: Airbus Defence & Space / Contract Number: 4000104941 / Start Year: 2011
With this GSP study, ESA wanted to capture the business needs and Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) requirements for 10 activities that had expressed interest in the Cloud and design one common IaaS blueprint for all of them, which would allow to simplify the Agency's IT infrastructure.
