PROJECT TITLE: Instructor Operation Station designed for space applications — IOS

Coordinator: Technical University of Cluj-Napoca


Period: 1 January 2014 - 30 December 2015

Project director: Prof. Dr. Eng. Adrian Pisla

Project team: All 4 partners creates a mix between experimented and young researches covering all the implied research areas: mechanical, numerical modeling and simulation, digital control, automation , robotics, spacecraft dynamics, prototyping , IT and PR.

There are 27 people direct involved and additional 3 PhD students.

Description: For creating new systems and devices, valuable testing and simulation tools are necessary to create experiments and demonstrate the validity of the elaborated solutions. The capacity to create simulation systems increases the confidence of the partners in offering subcontracts within the frame of the ESA (European Space Agency) programs.

Project objectives:

Major objective:

The scientific grounding and the development of an Instructor Operation Station  (IOS) designed for space applications in a form of a multirole robotized system that can be used as a standalone device for solution demonstration by simulation.

Specific objectives:


WP1 Elaboration of the IOS conceptual model 

WP2 IOS Model functionality demonstration 

Contributions to the STAR programme objectives:
