Opportunity battens down the hatches to try and weather a super storm
NASA is keeping a vigil over its Opportunity rover as the tenacious robot has been forced to shut down its systems and enter sleep mode as a massive storm has encompassed her; the storm even bigger than the ones expected to decommission the rover over 14 years ago.

Testing high-frequency signals for satellites

Testing high-frequency signals for satellites
An ESA project, which involves investigating a new frequency band for next-generation telecommunications, is seeing participation from Reaktor Space Lab and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. As the number of satellites and the speed required for data communications increase, transition to higher frequencies is expected to become a necessity in the near future.

A more accurate way to estimate climate change

A more accurate way to estimate climate change
It doesn’t matter if it’s a forest, a soybean field, or a prairie, all plants take up carbon dioxide during photosynthesis – the process where they use sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into food. During this changeover, the plants emit an energy 'glow' that is not visible to the human eye, but can be detected by satellites in space. Now, researchers at the University of New Hampshire have taken that one step further.

Antenna chip simplifies phased array radar for avionic designers

Antenna chip simplifies phased array radar for avionic designers
Analog Devices has introduced a highly integrated, active antenna beamforming chip that allows designers to quickly replace bulky, mechanically steered antenna platforms with a compact, solid-state solution for phased array radar and communications systems. The ADAR1000 chip simplifies design and significantly reduces the size, weight and power of phased array radar systems for defence, surveillance, air traffic control, communications and weather monitoring.

Protecting against ballistic missiles and military satellites

Protecting against ballistic missiles and military satellites
RAF Fylingdales located at Snod Hill, near Pickering on the North Yorkshire Moors, is an integral part of the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System (BMEWS) for UK and US defence, with a secondary duty of detecting, reporting and tracking satellite activity, given that many currently in orbit are of a military nature and able to gather intelligence using diverse covert techniques.
