ESA announced an ITT with the objective of funding advanced studies of the exploration of potential technology needs. Proposals must respond to one or more of the following technical challenges:
#1 – Land: To measure land characteristics over a wide spectral range/resolution at a high spatial resolution on timescales that are relevant to changes in the observables.
#2 – Atmospheric Chemistry: To measure NO2 content in the troposphere with high temporal resolution over the diurnal cycle.
#3 –Weather: To measure tropospheric properties (e.g. temperature, pressure, humidity, winds) on rapidly evolving timescales to support forecasting of severe weather events
Proposals must be a joint submission by both academic/research and industry institutions with a budget of 100K Euros for submission on the 1 August 2014. Helen Harrison at the Satellite Applications Catapult are looking for partners and if interested, email: Helen.Harrison@sa.catapult.org.uk for further information.
