Study the (micro) space debris environment in LEO to complement the models by an active short-range radar as well as a deployable piezoelectric array.
Study the (micro) space debris environment in Low Earth Orbit to complement the space debris models by obtaining in-situ data. The debris particles will be measured by an active short-range radar provided by Spire, as well as a deployable piezoelectric array provided by the OeWF.
The project has four objectives:
Spire will make their global ground station network available, including flight operations and data management, as well as procure the launch operations. The scientific data will be the bases for various research and art projects.
Three remarkable partners have teamed up to fly this satellite mission: Findus Venture GmbH as a funding entity, the Austrian Space Forum as a national space research organization and Spire Global Inc., a Silicon-valley based space company operating its own fleet of satellites.
AUSTRIAN PARTICLE IMPACT DETECTOR - APID
The OeWF will deliver the payload and provide instrument support, but will also be responsible for the communication and education efforts of the ADLER-1 mission, as well provide administrative project services. Selected payload testing will be conducted at the certified labs of Spire in Glasgow, UK.
ACTIVE DEBRIS DETECTION - SHORT RANGE RADAR
The first signal detected by the cubesat “ADLER-1”, developed by the Austrian Space Forum (ÖWF) together with Spire Global Inc. and Findus Venture Gmbh, originates from an extraterrestrial object or a micrometeoroid with an estimated velocity of 54,000-72,000 km/h.
The first signal was detected in early May. Of the 70,000 signals detected so far, one signal shape has changed significantly, ultimately indicating this high velocity. At the time of detection, the ADLER-1 cubesat was at an altitude of 479 kilometers above the Atlantic Ocean.
