Polymeric liner

The goal of the project, which was run in close cooperation with EADS CASA, was to develop sufficiently effective barrier based on thermosetting polymers. It would be used on future generations of reusable launch vehicles in effort to reduce the overall vehicle weight.

EOEUROPA

Gisat has provided the EO services to the EIB users in the frame of the joint ESA-EIB initiative EOEUROPE. Gisat’s support was focused on the Monitoring Progress of Large Cement Plant Construction in Derba, Ethiopia.

Mechanism industrialization

Frentech Aerospace has completed testing of solar array deployment mechanism. The mechanisms had to be made ​​in accordance with defined procedures and met all the technical specifications for use in space. All three pieces of mechanisms passed through the demanding tests.

FLUTTER

The goal of the project was flutter assessment of jettisonable versatile thermal insulation panels of upper cryogenic stage of a launcher.

O3S

The project addressed the evaluation and demonstration of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Services, in particular of areas where the Web Coverage Service (WCS) and the Web Map Service (WMS) technologies can bring benefits to satellite Earth Observation (EO) Payload Data Ground Segments (PDGS) and to users.

SWAN

The SWAN activity was related to the new ESA concept of the Common Monitoring and Control Platform (CMCP) for both the Mission Control System (MCS) and the Ground Station Monitoring & Control system (GSMC). The goal of the SWAN study was to identify the current design limitations of SCOS-2000 and suggest its software extension with a number of features needed for the GSMC.

SATCOM

The objective of the project Building Penetration Measurement and Modelling for Satellite Communications at L, S and C-Band was to address satellite-to-indoor propagation channel for future satellite services.

X-RAY OPTICS

The main objective of the X-ray Optics project was to modify the technology for the preparation of special optical modules for ESA X-ray astrophysics missions. The company proposed and verified innovative technologies for preparation of optical modules with silicon substrates.

DTL/DML

The “DTL/DML based MCS Demonstrator” is a follow-on activity with the purpose of verifying the new EGOS Data Transfer and Data Management libraries (DTL/DML) within the existing Mission Control System SCOS-2000.
