Forecasting Space Weather in the Arctic Region (FORSWAR)

The main objective of this activity was to develop and demonstrate new techniques which are expected to improve the current state-of-the-art Space Weather forecasting techniques and products related to Space Weather effects for Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) systems in the Arctic, with particular attention to the Greenland area. For this purpose, the activity investigated and tested innovative methods for monitoring and predicting Space Weather impacts on PNT in interested area.

European EEE-Component landscape analysis

Electrical, Electronic and Electro-mechanical (EEE) components play an essential role in the functional performance, quality, life cycle and costs of space systems. EEE components are fundamental building blocks of any spacecraft and major drivers in determining their performances. Guaranteeing access to EEE components able to provide the necessary performances to comply with the requirements of future satellite missions is of paramount importance to maintain a successful and autonomous satellite manufacturing capabilities.




End-to-End System Engineering Portal (ESEP)

Space system engineering is a complex activity, spanning multiple phases and involving different stakeholders using a variety of engineering approaches and tools. ESA has been investing in Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) research for many years, developing different MBSE frameworks and Domain Specific Tools (DSTs). Recently, a broader need has been recognized to focus the MBSE efforts on semantic interoperability and associated model integration.

Ge on Si Feasibility

The focus of study is to build near-IR capability onto Si CCDs for Time-Delay-Integration (TDI) applications, with the main requirement being charge domain summation, which allows the lowest noise performance on these types of devices. Currently there is no product that exists to do this. Si CCDs are a well-established technology which, whilst being an “old” technology, are still world leading in certain applications up to a wavelength of ~1μm.

Early in the loop MBSE assessment of electronic availability for nano/micro-satellites (ELMASAT)

The main objective of the ELMASAT study was to brint into Capella the means to calculate the availability of a satellite system and provide extra facilities for trade-off analysis. As an example of application, an assesment of SEE detection and mitigation strategies was performed with respect to availability objectives.

Mapping Windrows as Proxy for Marine Litter Monitoring from Space Remote sensing for marine litter - WASP

WASP is a data processor, developed in the frame of the ESA Discovery Campaign, exploiting Copernicus Sentinel-2 L1C images to detect and catalogue the presence of filaments of floating marine debris with high probability of containing anthropogenic litter.




Bio-inspired Solutions for Space Debris Removal

The BIOINSPACED project was initiated to find bio-inspired solutions for space debris removal because the identification, orbital alignment, capture and removal of uncooperative bodies in space is incredibly complex and no fully functioning method is available to date. Biology and its evolved mechanisms often provide specialized concepts that show great transferability to technical systems.

Application of MBSE to reverse-engineer OPS-SAT and improve OPS-SAT2

The main objective of the project is the reverse engineering of the OPS-SAT system, creating a model of the existing system design. The model aims to be built in a way that it is most useful for OPS-SAT engineers to understand and discuss the existing design and use this as a basis for further development of the OPS-SAT system.

Space Weather Impact on Arctic Navigation (SWAN)

The objective of the Space Weather impact on Arctic Navigation (SWAN) project has been to
develop and demonstrate new techniques, which are expected to improve on the current
state-of-the-art space weather forecasting techniques and products related to space weather
effects for Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) systems in the Arctic, with particular
attention to the Greenland area.

Magnetic Powder as Propellant in Electrostatic Thrusters (MPEP)

The main objectives of this project were to develop a thruster prototype based on magnetic powder electrostatic propulsion and to test it in vacuum with direct thrust measurements. The aim was to check the robustness of the concept and to measure and calculate important performance parameters such as thrust and specific impulse, to allow a comparison with other thruster technologies. This project demonstrated for the first time the feasibility of electrostatic propulsion based on powder emission.
