    Master Astronautic Engineering

    EQF level 7

    University of Rome "Sapienza", Roma (Italy)

    The Master of Science in astronautical engineering develops the capacity for planning and management space missions, spacecraft and orbital infrastructure.
    The course of study gives me the capacity of acting with a systemic approach taking into account the close interaction between man and space system. For this purpose, multi-disciplinary knowledge is required because the man-machine interaction concern all aspects of engineering systems and space missions. They also developed attitudes to teamwork even within groups.The main disciplines of study in astronautical engineering are: astrodynamics, space systems, automatic controls and applied mathematics, in addition there are a number of disciplines that help deepen knowledge in specific areas.

    Projects

    SAP4PRISMA (Development of algorithms and products for agriculture and land monitoring applications for supporting the PRISMA mission)

    maggio 2011 – Present

    The SAP4PRISMA is a four year research project which aims at developing algorithms and products for the future PRISMA mission.

    SIGRI (Sistema Integrato Gestione Rischio Incendi)

    aprile 2011 – novembre 2012

    The pilot project SIGRI of the Italian Space Agency aims at developing an integrated system for the management of wild fires.The system provides satellite-based products capable of assisting in all phases of fire combat activities: forecast, detection, damage assessment, and recovery. The SIGRI goals were achieved by implementing consolidated methodologies, and/or developing innovative tools and methods for the automated analysis of multispectral, Synthetic Aperture Radar, and non-EO.

    EFFMIS (European Forest Fires Monitoring Using Information Systems)

    giugno 2011 – ottobre 2012

    The project aims to pool Good Practices (GPs) on exploitation of the usage of information systems in order to early detect, efficiently manage and handle forest fires and assess the damage caused and ways for regeneration.

    PREFER (Space based Information Support for Prevention and Recovery of Forest Fires Emergency in the Mediterranean Area)

    dicembre 2012 – Present

    The main objective of PREFER is to set up a space-based end-to-end information services, based on satellite remote sensing data, to support prevention/preparedness and recovery phases of the Forest Fires emergency cycle in the European Mediterranean Region.

    ODS3F (Observation and Detection Systems For Forest Fire Monitoring)

    gennaio 2013- Present
     

    The project is devoted to the development of a common understanding of the capabilities of vision (optical or thermal) and detection systems on which a fire remote detection network can be based.

    The 4th ALOS Research Announcement for ALOS-2

    The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency 4th ALOS Research Announcement (RA) has solicited research proposals for science and utilization research using the Advanced Land Observing Satellite-2 (ALOS-2), which carries the L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar, PALSAR-2 and will be launched in 2013. ALOS-2 will utilize high resolution based advanced land observation technologies. ALOS-2 will be used for disaster ring, environmental monitoring for sustainable Earth in forestry, cryospheric, and sea ice, natural resources, technology development for the future Earth remote sensing (satellite and sensor) In this context, the EOSIAL Lab (DIAEE Sapienza) is involved in 2 research projects (Forest Fires damage assessment, and Oil Spill pollution monitoring).
