Coordinator: The Institute of Space Science


Period: 18 November 2012 - 18 November 2015

Project director: Dr. Lucia A. Popa 

Project team:

Description: EUCLID:Multi-Probe Approach M-class Scientific Mission 

Project objectives: NISP and VIS data compression algorithms development and test: Euclid NISP and VIS instruments will produce impressive amounts of data, to be read by the corresponding Control and Data Processing Units (CDPU’s), compressed, packed and transferred to the spacecraft Mass Memory Unit (MMU) in narrow and well defined time windows.


Contributions to the STAR programme objectives:

This project represents the Romanian contribution to the development of the Euclid Mission, during the first three years after its official adoption by the European Space Agency (ESA). The project objectives respond to some of the Euclid Consortium requirements. Their fulfillment will confirm the capacity of the project team to perform research activities according to the ESA standards. The experience gained during the project completion will ensure successful application to ESA projects, including in optional programs to which Romania intends to adhere.
