DLR's Remote Sensing Technology Institute has more than 20 years of history in developing spaceborne stereo scanners (MEOSS, MOMS) and the corresponding stereo evaluation software systems. It takes part in the ESA/JAXA-AO Program to evaluate the performance and potential of the three-line stereo scanner PRISM (Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for(More)
One of the first essential steps in the analysis of satellite imagery is the orthorectification of the images. Normally, satellite data are delivered geocoded with varying accuracy. Orthorectification without ground control points (GCPs) using only the ephemeris and attitude data provided by the satellite operator provides an absolute accuracy of about 20 m(More)
Small grid-connected photovoltaic systems up to 5 kW p are often not monitored because advanced surveillance systems are not economical. Hence, some system failures which lead to partial energy losses stay unnoticed for a long time. Even a failure that results in a larger energy deficit can be difficult to detect by PV laymen due to the fluctuating energy(More)
—The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is responsible for the development of prototype processors for PRISM and AVNIR-2 data under a contract of the European Space Agency. The PRISM processor comprises the radiometric correction, an optional deconvolution to improve image quality, the generation of a digital elevation model, and orthorectification. The AVNIR-2(More)
The " European Transport Solver " (ETS) [1,2] is the new modular simulator developed within the EFDA Integrated Tokamak Modelling (ITM) Task Force*. Ultimately, it will allow for the entire discharge simulation from the start up until the current termination phase, including controllers and subsystems. The paper presents the current status of the project(More)
The Failure Detection Routine is developed in the scope of the project PVSAT2, which is part of the EU programme " energy, environment and sustainable development " and is assisted in Switzerland by BBW. The project started in November 2002 und will last until October 2005. The commercial application will start in 2005. PURPOSE: Especially minor energy(More)
The Applied Remote Sensing Cluster at the German Aerospace Center DLR has long lasting experiences with air-and spaceborne acquisition and processing of hyperspectral image data. Jointly with the German Space Operations Center it is responsible for the establishment of the ground segment of the future German hyperspectral satellite mission EnMAP(More)
The basic components of the future German satellite mission EnMAP (Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program) are the project management led by the Space Agency of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) located in Bonn-Oberkassel, the space segment consisting of the satellite bus and the hyperspectral instrument established by Kayser Threde in Munich and(More)
The German Aerospace Center DLR – namely the Earth Observation Center EOC and the German Space Operations Center GSOC – is responsible for the establishment of the ground segment of the future German hyperspectral satellite mission EnMAP (Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program).
