DARTT aims to provide an end-to-end solution for public transport providers in rural areas of South-Eastern Europe to deploy on-demand transport services.
The DARTT Kickstart activity has been completed, and the following milestones have been achieved:
The DARTT service concept functions by using a robotic arm attached to a tether that is deployed from a servicing spacecraft to the target satellite.
Here’s how it works:
The key advantage of the DARTT service concept is that it enables in-orbit servicing of satellites without the need for the target satellite to be specifically designed for servicing. The robotic arm can be customized to fit various types of satellites, making it a flexible and adaptable solution for servicing a wide range of satellites.
AMOR is a project that aims to improve the conservation and restoration of ancient monuments in Rome, while also enhancing the experience for visitors. The project provides information to site managers about the condition of the monuments and tracks visitor behavior, while also offering a mobile app with certified information and mixed reality experiences for visitors.
The project is targeted towards various public institutions responsible for safeguarding monuments and cultural visitors to Rome.
AMOR uses Earth Observation satellites and Global Navigation Satellite Systems to monitor and analyze the condition of cultural assets in Rome, with a focus on detecting potential issues for preventive maintenance. This includes using Synthetic Aperture Radar sensors and Multispectral sensors to detect movements, map weed vegetation, and contribute to vulnerability calculations.
The AMOR service concept functions by using a robot to perform various tasks on a spacecraft autonomously, without the need for human intervention.
Here’s how it works:
The key advantage of the AMOR service concept is that it enables autonomous servicing of spacecraft, which can reduce the cost and risk associated with human intervention. The AMOR robot can also perform tasks more efficiently than humans, as it does not require life support systems and can work for extended periods without rest.
