Product/Objective

Research and development activities were geared towards creating a set of innovative tools and technologies to construct space- and ground-based technological infrastructures to acquire, process and manage satellite data (Earth observation and space exploration), as well as to provide operators and end-users (regional and scientific bodies) with the necessary tools (innovative products and value-added services) for their operational, management and decision-making activities in both the application and the management of data acquired from scientific missions.

Project Summary

The project covered a wide range of space-related issues ranging from exploration of the Universe to Earth observation, including systems, the management of remote data reception, and awareness-raising activities for regional consumer acceptance of the use of space systems.

Innovation

The theme of the exploration of the Universe was also strategically important to the scientific and industrial team. There were five key areas of focus: innovative sensors for the exploration of the universe, electric propulsion, unconventional propulsion, space transport, and plasma phenomena and processes in space.

ES Role

EnginSoft was involved in the development, including the graphical user interface (GUI) of the decision-making software for a 3D kinetic code for simulating plasma thrusters.
