The Space Research and Technology Institute presented new projects

Bulgarian space foods, drones’ capabilities demonstrations and the newest ideas for remote earth sensing from space are just some of the topics that the Space Research and Technology Institute at BAS (SRTI-BAS) spoke about on its Open Door Day on the occasion of the 50th anniversary from its establishment. For the first time, the institute also showed a pilot training simulator. There is also a Technology Transfer Center in SRTI-BAS. A three-dimensional model of Sofia created on the basis of satellite images for analysis and evaluation of air pollution showed the scientists. Another current project is related to the determination of water quality owing to satellite images from space – it has been applied to Varna Lake and Iskar Dam on a test basis. The [...]

ISRT-BAS apparatus operates in orbit around Mars

The Trace Gas Orbiter satellite launched under the European and Russian Space agencies’ project ExoMars reached Mars in October 2016. During TGO transit to Mars our dosemeter Liuli-MO (a unit of the Russian neutron detector FREND) performed perfectly, and we obtained unique results about the radiation environment along an Earth-Mars journey. These results are already published in ICARUS journal (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.icarus.2017.12.034). […]
