S2IGI Meets The Interest Of Italian Civil Protection

S2IGI meets the interest of Italian Civil Protection

Last week Nurjana CTO Maurizio Cao presented our S2IGI project to Civil Protection: an integrated system for Forest Fires management. S2IGI project will be developed encompassing the following main principles: a) to define, make and demonstrate a functional architecture, accounting for all types of operational scenarios of fire-related emergencies at local, regional and national level, respectively; b) to customize and implement into the system the whole set of unsupervised, fire-orientedEOtechniques prioritizing the exploitation of the Copernicus data and products; c) to explore, test, and implement into the system if appropriate, innovative unsupervised techniques for fire detection and burn scar mapping adopting advanced algorithms; d) to…

Tiangong -1: A Great Discovery Was Made!

Tiangong -1: a great discovery was made!

A great discovery was made! Indeed, it was taken the fleeing picture of the out-of-control Tiangong -1 Chinese Space Station that will fall to Earth within 30 days in an unidentified place. The picture was captured the 12th March while overflying Sardinia, using an astronomical telescope specifically adapted for the object’s tracking into low orbit. The observation was carried out through complex astrodynamics calculations made using the new software components of the Nurjana MMP suite dedicated to the Aerospace applications, implementing the innovative multi sensor data fusion technique for space debris monitoring and orbital determination. The test permitted to verify…

A Vodafone 4G Network On Moon

A Vodafone 4G network on Moon

A Vodafone 4G network, together with two Audi rovers, are going to land on moon by 2019.  What we know is that there are so many moon areas in which the phone does not get a signal now, but next year there might be a cell coverage. This private mission was conceived by a PTScientists team from Berlin: a group of scientists who have devoted their free time to this project. The PTS team are collaborating with Nokia and Vodafone about the 4G networking and with Audi to bring two Audi Quattro rovers and the ALINA (Autonomous Landing and Navigation…

Mercury Alarm Bells

Mercury Alarm Bells

Mercury was recently defined as the “Sun sentinel”, because it may inform us about imminent geomagnetic storms caused by the arrival of solar plasma bubbles, called Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) into the terrestrial environment. It is a fact that there is a direct link between the passage of a bubble from the Sun and the exosphere dynamic of Mercury. The emission trend of Sodium (Na) around Mercury could be an alarm bell in the spatial planetary meteorology: it shall provide indications about the spread of solar low-pressure areas before their possible coming to the Earth. In a National Institute of…

Another Goal Achieved!

Another goal achieved!

“Aerospace's gonna grow Sardinia” said Raffaele Paci, Vice President and Minister for Finance & Development of the Regional Government of Sardinia. Yes, because we are pleased to announce that we just received confirmation that the Region of Sardinia will fund two our research and development projects about Aerospace Sector: S2IGI and API. These were selected from a wide range of valuable project proposals submitted by Companies and Sardinian Research Institutes, getting in so enviable lines in the final ranking drawn up by national experts in the aerospace sector: 1st the S2IGI and 5th the API one. The objective of the…

Exotopography, New Research Field

Exotopography, new research field

Moiya McTier, a Columbia University astronomer, declared that in the near future it is possible “seeing mountains and valleys on distant worlds”. How could it be? I’m about to tell you. On 11th of January 2018 she presented some analysis at the American Astronomical Society, showing about working in a new research field, the exotopography. This last is a young branch of astrophysics, focused on topography exoplanet perspective. She used the maps of our four terrestrial planets and the moon (made by US Geological Survey) to determine what their light curves around. Then, the astronomer declared also that by analysing the dip in a star’s light as a…

Solar System Exploration Plan 2018

Solar System exploration plan 2018

With the beginning of this New Year also the aerospace world has new purposes, so let’s have a look to the Solar System exploration plan of 2018! Hereafter we show you the main points: During this year it is predicted the expedition of 18 astronauts to ISS; In March “Chandrayaan -2” probe is going to move on Moon bringing a lander and rover; “Hayabusa 2” probe (launched in 2014) is in transit to Ryugu asteroid and it will arrive in July; “OSIRIS-Rex” probe (launched in 2016) is in transit to Bennu asteroid and it will arrive in August; In October…

The Flyby Asteroid 2012 TC4

The flyby asteroid 2012 TC4

The last 12 October 2017 at 7.42 a.m. it was done the first anti-asteroid exercise with the 2012 TC4 asteroid. The 2012 TC4 grazed the Earth, in particular the Antarctic, less than 44.000 km that is one-tenth of the distance between Earth and Moon. It was discovered on 4th October 2012 when it was distant 4.500.000 km from Earth and it came up with a speed of 30.000 miles per hour. This 15 metres of diameter asteroid falls into the category of near-earth object (NEO) of the Apollo group. In this manner the asteroid had permitted the first planetary defence…
