Research project: Multi-channel Microwave Radiometer for Internal Body Temperature Measurements

The principal research target of the MMR-IBTM project was to develop low-cost arrangements with integrated passive microwave radiation monitoring function, which can be used as early warning and monitoring devices for sub-tissue abnormalities, such as initial stage breast cancer. In addition, a major business target of the MMR-IBTM project was to harmonically collaborate with a Chinese company by having complementary research and development competences, as well as by exchanging working methodologies and business mentality, and having as vision a future fruitful continuation of the cooperation, towards industrialization and productization of the project’s outcome.

WLDCL in European Space Agency's research project "Multi-Magnetometer Methods for Magnetic Dipole Modelling"

In various exploration missions, magnetometer-carrying spacecrafts aim to reveal the structural composition of planets and to study the complex interactions between the solar wind and the planetary environments. Magnetic field levels are usually extremely low making the need for “magnetically clean” spacecraft. . The aim of this project is to increase reproducibility of test results by a reduction of measurement sensitivity to environment variations occurring during the test. The activity shall strive in parallel also to reduce considerably required test time and necessary operator expertise.

HeERO: preparing the field for the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call

HeERO focused on preparing the field for the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service“eCall” based on 112/E112, the single European Emergency number. The main objectives of HeERO were to define operational and functional requirements needed to upgrade all eCall related service-chain parts (PSAPs-integrated rescue systems, telecommunication-112/E112, etc.) to handle eCall, to implement available Pan-European eCall related European standards and to implement needed technical and operational infrastructure upgrades in each participating country, to assess the operation of the installed PSAPs via a common certification procedure and to produce recommendations for future eCall pre-deployment and deployment activities in Europe.
