Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

Launch is the most strenuous part of a satellite's life. To survive the extreme sound wave pressure and pounding vibrations generated by more than 700,000 lbs. of thundering rocket thrust, spacecraft need a solid, reliable design if they hope to arrive operational on orbit. On July 13, Lockheed Martin (LMT)'s second, fully-assembled GPS III space vehicle (SV) completed a realistic simulation of its future launch experience and passed this critical acoustic environmental test with flying color...

    EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) Integrated Maritime Data Environment (IMDatE). The project aims at federating all the Enterprise IT business services into a unique SOA based system, which handles dynamic data for 100.000+ ships worldwide, with the objective of improving the quality of services offered towards maritime safety. These include search and rescue, coastal traffic control, anti-piracy, oil spill monitoring, etc. The project is developed in coordination with CLS, as a subcontractor. Frame Contract budget (currently the EMSA largest) is about 4 MEuro.

     

     

    11/2009 ongoing  

    EMSA(European Maritime Safety Agency) Clean Sea Net Data Centre (CSN-DC): it is a 4 years frame-contract for the development of a modern Data Centre mainly focussed at monitoring oil spill pollution. CSN-DC is currently a leading project in EMSA aiming at integrating multi-source heterogeneous data, in order to coordinate the whole EMSA workflow. ACS has proposed a technical solution almost entirely based on the end-to-end PDGS solutions currently installed in the main Space Agencies world-wide.
