Based in Zurich, Thales Alenia Space in Switzerland is specialized in the engineering and production of complex and innovative instruments for scientific and Earth observation satellites, as well as spaceborne
optical communications terminals.
Ultra-high-speed electrons that enter Earth's radiation belt are also known by the more ominous name of "killer electrons" due to the havoc they can cause during geomagnetic storms to spaceborne
technology, including GPS navigation systems and communications and weather satellites.
The amateur radio unit (ARU) payload onboard the microsatellite Diwata-2 is a spaceborne
module targeted for amateur radio communications and disaster/emergency response.
On February 19, 2018, nearly a year before the rehabilitation project, Diwata-1 was able to capture an image of Manila Bay using its Spaceborne
Multispectral Imager (SMI).
The researchers also used data from a constellation of Italian and German spaceborne
synthetic aperture radars.
Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM) is used in GIS environment for watershed modeling and mining primary morphometric parameters comprised of spatial and attribute information.
It weighs 57 kilos and will carry the same four cameras of its predecessor - high-precision telescope, spaceborne
multispectral imager with liquid crystal tunable filter, wide field camera, and middle field camera - but will produce sharper images because of a new enhanced resolution camera, according to Dr.
They then compared these laboratory signatures to those collected from the ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne
Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) instrument on the Terra satellite.
"GRACE enabled tracking the movement of water via its mass, a field which was not available in spaceborne
remote sensing and which opened new options to monitor and quantify climate change," said Reinhard HAaAaAeA ttl, the chairman of the Board and Scientific Executive Direct of the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in a phys.org (https://phys.org/news/2017-03-years-grace-satellite-mission-flies.html#jCp) report.
Generally, active phased array antennas are used for spaceborne
synthetic aperture radar (SAR) because their electronic beam steering capability without satellite maneuvering or mechanical beam pointing provides flexibility and agility.
In addition, it conducts advanced research studies, develops prototypes and produces spaceborne
, airborne and terrestrial communications and information processing systems.
