COMPASS at ESA Living Planet Symposium 2022

The ESA’s Living Planet Symposium is one the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world, playing a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change. The COMPASS group participated to the Living Planet Symposium 2022, held in Bonn, Germany on 23–27 May 2022.

The contributions on sustainability of space and SGDs and on formation flying for earth Observation were presented by our PhD student Francesca Scala during the poster sessions of the symposium.

The highlights of the poster presentations are

  • Design and definition of the performances of the guidance, navigation, and control for a new mission study to improve the spatial resolution of data in L-band. The poster presented the outcomes of the Formation Flying L-band Aperture Synthesis study, done in collaboration with ESA-ESTEC and Airbus Spain (ADS-ES)
  • The study of social benefit of space missions and the definition of quantitative indices to map the scientific outcomes of space missions into the Sustainable Development Goals
