The project focused on the development of a grey water recycling system, called "AIGANOVA". Sherpa Engineering contributed in the design of control systems in three areas: 1) The system approach that includes representation of the steering system and operating system 2) the model-predictive control and energy management 3) the modeling and simulation of a closed-loop system. A study at the Balneotherapy center (a hotel for 240 guests) demonstrated an overall annual gain (including maintenance and repair) of about EUR 80,000 and a return on investment of seven years, with an average grey water recycling rate of about 60%. Societal challenge AIGANOVA addressed two major societal concerns: water consumption and energy use in recycling. AIGANOVA demonstrated the possibility to reduce external water resources by 50-80%. Also heat can be recovered from recycled water, this reduces the operating cost by a factor 3. MELiSSA expertise The water treatment unit built for AIGANOVA was based on MELiSSA expertise from the Antarctic research station "Concordia". The MELiSSA consortium brought partners together with complementary skills to maximise the water recycling integration and development process in a building.

AlgoSolis addresses R&D issues related to the advancement of a sustainable microalgae industry by providing the scientific and technological environment for the development of large-scale, controlled and efficient microalgae and related processes. The facility includes a 1,500 m2 biomass production area, a 350 m2 greenhouse, 20 biomass production lines, the possibility to culture microalgae on industrial emissions (flue gas, liquid waste), and a fully equipped downstream processing R&D unit (240 m2) for production of raw and refined microalgae biomass. AlgoSolis addresses several major societal concerns related to global food and fuel shortages and the need for sustainable production materials (i.e. bio-based materials). Algae represent an important means to meet the world's growing food demand. Compared to the production of 'normal' vegetables, algae production is extremely efficient in terms of energy, and algae contain many nutrients. In addition, biofuels and bio-based materials can be produced from microalgae. The AlgoSolis research programme continues to investigate and refine these and related processes, including the screening of algae strains and metabolic optimisation, the development of a high surface-to-volume photobioreactor, and the production of biomass. MELiSSA expertise A MELiSSA partner, the University Blaise Pascal (UBP) of Clermont-Ferrand possesses specific expertise in light transfer, photobioreaction design and engineering, and algae refinery. This expertise has been largely developed over the course of UBP's research in MELiSSA, and is known and recognised by parties involved in AlgoSolis.

AMBROSIA project aims at improving locally produced food safety and traceability in order to clearly improve overall public health and reduce consumer exposure to compromised food. The objectives of the service are: (i) to enable faster and more targeted product recalls; (ii) to improve chain efficiency and the productivity gains resulting from improved product labelling and tracking practices that have the potential to provide “real-time visibility” into product movement through the supply chain; and (ii) to analyse the supplier base, the local food distribution system and to implement supplier development programmes or sustainability management systems. The service mainly targets food distribution chains that need to be more transparent about the food origin, the food nutritional value, its ecological qualities and its way of production and transportation. It targets: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, as well as governments, municipalities, NGOs, certification authorities and regulators. The service uses satellite technology and IoT data to collect and analyse large amounts of data from the food supply chain and transform it into actionable insights. It mainly uses EO and satellite navigation data.

It was part of ESA’s efforts to make sure the air in the International Space Station (ISS) is safe to breathe. Today, thanks to their Microbial Analysis technology, Bioclear can also identify the presence of a bacterial threat in water or soil and estimate how powerful that threat might be. This has come in handy for a variety of commercial applications, from tracking hygiene issues in drinking water to monitoring pollutant-degrading bacteria in contaminated soil. However, ‘biocorrosion’ is their largest market. Corrosion of metal is a chemical process, but 40–50% of this corrosion is stimulated by certain bacteria. By analysing a sample of water or soil, Bioclear determines the risk posed to metals there. This is useful in a number of scenarios, including ships docked in harbours. But one of the company’s largest biocorrosion markets is pipelines, as pipelines in the ground run through different soil types. If you know a certain soil promotes corrosion, it is possible to adjust the inspection schedule. Noting that certain bacteria can speed the corrosion of metal by up to 100 times it is interesting to know where the weak spots are.

CO2 data from OCO-2 and NO2, SO2 and CO data from Sentinel-5P are collocated. The plan is to analyze these data in synergy to better detect anthropogenic CO2 sources and plumes. In detail OCO-2 XCO2 data is deseasonalized and detrended, and further correlated/clustered to the spatial distribution of other species such as NO2, SO2, CO. Further a direct detection of emission plumes is done for anthropogenic sources using NO2, SO2 and CO datasets, and collocating the plumes with XCO2 data. The corresponding CO2 enhancements and ratios between different species at local level is then calculated. The project has been kicked-off the 5th October.

ESA’s materials solidification research carried out on the ISS and using sounding rockets is helping in the development of new knowledge-based casting methods for industrial aluminium alloys, which are being developed to reduce the occurrence of structural defects, thus helping to reduce the size of vehicle engines and improving efficiency as well as reliability. This research therefore not only has a positive economical influence within such industries, it also has a positive environmental influence with reduced fuel consumption and hence emissions. Numerical models that lie at the heart of these new methods rely on input parameters coming from ESA research. Parameters that cannot be accurately measured on Earth. Some thermophysical properties of high temperature metallic melts can be measured using the electromagnetic levitator, while solidification features and the dynamics of their formation can be obtained in both the electromagnetic levitator and the materials science laboratory, both of which are on the ISS. Sounding rockets tests complement these when it comes to more “difficult” alloys. These tests have been providing the fundamental information needed to accelerate the rate of innovation in manufacturing and materials engineering through computer simulations. The future use of X-ray radiography technologies on the ISS to observe the dynamics of microstructure formation in industrial alloys will even further extend the potential in this area of research as will experiments using the transparent alloys instrument. ESA has numerous industrial partners within this research (Innoval Tech., Arcelor-Mittal, Transvalor, InduSteel, AscoMetal, Aperam Alloys Imphy, Evraz, Alcoa Köfem Lt, Inotal, Nmeak, Hydro-Aluminium, Incaal, Schwemetall, Wieland, KME, DKI, Equispheres, RGS, VDM Metals, Areva, PX-Services, TATA Steel, Zollern, Netzsch, CSM). Modelling casting processes, and measuring properties of several industrially relevant alloys, will ‘bulk’ material features and related properties to be predicted. Snecma is also participating in a project aiming to understand and control how TiAl-based turbine blades can be reliably produced with superior properties in terms of strength and heat resistance, allowing significant reductions in fuel consumptions of future aircraft. The general belief is that a breakthrough is possible and that space measurements will have contributed importantly to that. Similar advantages are also expected for other segments, all leading to higher performance and process reliability (lower scrap rate), less energy consuming production and mobility. In addition to casting processes other potential applications include metallic glass production, 3D printing, spray forming and powder production.

The main issue with the dangerous goods transports in the medical sector is that they are often not carried out according to the legal requirements. DG-Trac allows the tracking and tracing of these goods and introduces a centralised mechanism for the management and (controlled) distribution of information concerning each transport. Thanks to the European eCall, in case of an accident, the emergency service will automatically be alerted and informed about the involved dangerous goods and how to handle them. The main objectives of the DG-Trac feasibility study were to identify the stakeholders and user needs, to involve users from the medical and pharmaceutical sector as well as emergency services, and to design a system and service architecture based on the user needs and requirements taking into account the added value of the use of satellite navigation and satellite communication services. Viability studies were carried out to evaluate the economic and non-economic aspects of the proposed service(s) and the related system design and a proof-of-concept showed the principle implementation of such a service and demonstrated its technical feasibility. A roadmap was designed based on the results of the viability analysis and the proof of concept, which showed how a sustainable service for the tracking and tracing of dangerous medical goods could be established.

sub-Saharan Africa In 2019, only 28% of urban African areas and 6% of rural areas had an internet access. The ESA-supported Every Child Online partnership aims at developing new ground technologies bringing affordable and reliable satellite broadband services to schools and their local communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Source: International Telecommunication Union ITU Every Child Online, or ECO, a public-private partnership between ESA and UK satellite network operator Avanti Communications under ESA’s ARTES partner programme, is set to bring affordable and reliable Wi-Fi hotspots to low-income users in sub-Saharan Africa. While new generation satellites offer greater speed and flexibility at lower cost, ground infrastructures and satellite services in Africa have not aligned to the local market price points, stifling growth. To meet the high potential demand for sub-Saharan Africa satellite broadband, ECO aims to implement enhanced ground technologies and exploit novel service delivery methods, leveraging the latest capabilities of Avanti’s Hylas-4 telecoms satellite which will be operational by mid-2017. The programme will enable managed community internet access to be deployed both quickly and cost effectively, using a service model which supports socio-economic development within communities beyond the benefits of broadband access alone. Each ECO network point will be scalable to the demands of the local community, handling tens to hundreds of subscribers. This will be achieved by using the latest generation of Wi-Fi standards to maximize service range, minimize power consumption and deliver robust connectivity for smart phone and tablet users. The ECO satellite broadband services will benefit schools, health centres, community centres, Internet cafés and community area networks, along with governments, telecom providers, mobile network operators, Internet service providers, private network operators and local resellers. The ECO community shared access services will initially be deployed in a number of pilot sites across several countries, including rural and edge-of-urban communities, as well as in towns or suburban areas where fixed line or mobile connectivity is unavailable or unreliable. ECO services and technologies will be deployed as part of the roll out of Avanti’s services over the Hylas-4 satellite, which upon launch will offer significant additional capacity across sub-Saharan Africa. This will be in addition to the business partners who are already in place providing services from the existing Hylas-2 satellite. With ECO, Avanti is developing a range of services and capabilities, supported by two Belgian companies: satcom service provider SatADSL and technology provider Newtec. Newtec will lead the ground segment development with their enhanced Dialog platform while SatADSL will expand its current range of services in Africa using their flexible Service Delivery Platform. The ECO programme was launched in September 2016 and will continue for five years. This includes three years of evaluating pilot services for over 1400 community sites, including schools and internet cafés across six countries in Africa.

The stations gather data on the current accuracy of GPS signals and embed it in the EGNOS signal, which is uplinked to the satellites to be transmitted to users. EGNOS serves to sharpen the accuracy of GPS signals across Europe and informing users about the current reliability level of the system. Designed against global standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), EGNOS began offering its Open Service for non-safety-of-life uses in October 2009, with its Safety-of-Life Service becoming available for aircraft navigation (allowing vertical guidance for landing approaches) in March 2011.

The two HV-SATPROTEC services which are based on the integration of different space and non-space assets, provide users at lower costs with systematic and timely information on the state of the infrastructures and on potential threats in their surroundings. These services support a more cost-efficient planning of necessary maintenance tasks, anticipate risks threatening overhead power lines and improve the overall safety of monitoring operations within transmission corridors. This helps to reduce the risk of power outages and to decrease the related high maintenance/recovery operation costs. More precisely, the expected benefits for the two services are an early detection of potential or actual threats, more systematic and reliable information on threats to reduce fault risks and the associated downtime costs; more accurate information for a better planning of pruning operations; and reduced monitoring and maintenance costs. In terms of infrastructure integrity accurate information was provided for a better planning of infrastructure repairs, systematic information on infrastructure integrity was provided to reduce risk of faults and safety was increased thanks to the reduction of climbers’ inspections or helicopter flights.

By investigating critical risk use cases concerning technological hazards in Belgium and food security in Senegal, the study aims to demonstrate that a “global” approach brings significant benefits, compared to traditional segmented approaches that impede the construction of viable business models. The Study has selected two different risk scenarios in two continents. The first scenario concerns Belgium, where, for centuries, industrial activities have developed in the middle of a dense population, raising critical concern about the risks for the citizens, e.g. accidents in a factory, ground instability caused by ancient mining and quarry activities. The second scenario addresses the tremendous challenge that low agricultural productivity and risks on the yield (weather, pest, losses) put, in Senegalese municipalities, on the local authorities, who often lack of reliable local information for anticipation and decision-making. Targeted users’ communities: local authorities (municipalities), the regional and national institutions in charge of risk prevention, mitigation and intervention, and the first responders of the Civil Security services. The stakeholders involved in the production (e.g. industrial enterprises and engineering companies in Belgium, farmers and suppliers of inputs for agriculture in Senegal) and in the services (e.g. experts, financial institutions) are also targeted as they are consumers of added-value services generating potentially significant revenues.

Improving these models requires accurate thermo-physical data such as thermo-diffusion coefficients, which are impossible to measure on Earth owing to the convection induced by gravity. ESA is enabling significant research in this process using the ISS and different orbital capsules and testing different mixtures in weightlessness to determine such thermo-diffusion data. This has covered a mixture of different binary, ternary and more complex hydrocarbon samples, representative of oil field samples. The latest set of these experiments on the Chinese SJ-10 orbital capsule in 2016 was undertaken with active participation of the French TOTAL and Chinese Petrochina oil companies. This determined for instance accurate data for a four component hydrocarbon mixture at pressures 400 times normal atmospheric pressure at sea level. Gathering such unique data, under such testing experiment conditions, is very positive not only for the influence this has on the accuracy of associated numerical models but also for the continuance of such experiments in this area in the future, addressing in particular samples containing CO2 in relation to carbon dioxide sequestration issues.

The objective of INDIGO is to deliver an innovative Ground Segment solution to support and effectively exploit the benefits of the next generation of multi-beam, multi-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) networks. With INDIGO, the global Satellite Operator, Intelsat (US), in partnership with Newtec (Belgium), the European Industrial ground segment supplier, propose to bring to the market an innovative and competitive Satcom solution based upon an evolution of the Newtec DIALOG ground segment solution. This PPP is the first of its kind, bringing together the first opportunity to partner and enter the ecosystem of a prominent global Operator and the first PPP to focus exclusively on a ground segment development activity. The 3 year contract aims to leverage the opportunity for global growth by deploying and operating a European developed ground segment within the IntelsatOne network and EpicNG global constellation of HTS satellites, offering a first mover advantage for European suppliers in an almost exclusively non-European competitive arena. The combination of a highly versatile space and ground segment with increased performance aims to lower the total cost of ownership and enable the provision of end-user services in multiple market segments not economically viable previously. To achieve this, the INDIGO activities cover the development and qualification of new key technologies, with innovations to the DIALOG modems, hubs, and network management system, offering new and improved features such as, advanced carrier management, capacity management and load sharing mechanisms, beam switching and satellite handover solutions, terminal line-up and calibration automation, as well as satellite payload configuration methodologies, all targeted at leveraging the benefits offered by multi-beam, multi-band, high capacity satellite constellations and the diverse global markets and services they aim to provide. INDIGO will offer the opportunity for all partners and European sub-system suppliers to expand their product and service portfolios within a highly competitive market, while also gaining heritage through the worldwide deployment of several commercially pre-operational pilots designed to demonstrate and validate the DIALOG innovations, and subsequently lead to full commercial service deployment by early 2018.

The European Commission has taken a number of actions to ensure appropriate conditions for such operations. One of the most important documents is the Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport. The document sets out the guidelines on how to transport the animals, and introduces the obligation to use satellite navigation systems by those livestock transport companies who provide long term transports (above 8 hours). However, according to studies, most of the companies do not fully utilise the potential and possibilities given by such systems. To meet the requirements of the European Union, Hertz Systems developed a livestock monitoring system that allows real time monitoring of such transports. The solution can be integrated with other vehicle subsystems and transport information such as fuel consumption, temperature conditions, water level control etc. Market analysis has shown, that there is a need for a system dedicated specifically to livestock monitoring during transport. In addition to basic functions as included in regular fleet monitoring systems, sensors mounted within the truck will allow the welfare of the animals to be monitored. A related journey log reporting module generates the required transport reports faster and easier and the connection with other vehicles systems allows additional functionalities supporting the reduction of fuel consumptions as well as better route planning. All these features are intended to reduce operational cost of the transport companies. The analysis showed that companies are very interested in a system which meets all their quality requirements and offers additional functions allowing the reduction of costs arising from the vehicle exploitation.

The main concern is to obtain a sufficiently high level of reliability, which can be difficult considering the relatively low production values and highly challenging space environment. To reduce costs, off-the-shelf hybrids can be used and adapted to space applications. Through the ESA Technology Research Programme (TRP), RUAG has assessed the feasibility of a low-cost European alternative to current non-European suppliers. A competitive 10W converter has been developed for standard and digital electronics. While the converter is very thin, it nevertheless accommodates many convenient features, including spacecraft protection, accurate over voltage protection, a flexible telecommand interface and so on.

The emphasis of the OAPM service is not on Near-Real-Time delivery of satellite imagery, but regular delivery of high-quality, reliable, value-added information to enhance situational awareness. The core users of OAPM are principally offshore oil and gas operators. OAPM integrates two space assets: Earth Observation satellites (principally SAR) and satellite AIS data. Satellite imagery is used to observe the occurrence of offshore slicks. Combining this with satellite AIS data enables the identification of potential pollution sources from local vessel activity. The increasing availability of regularly acquired, cost-effective satellite data significantly enhances the ability of offshore operators to understand the occurrence and evolving behaviour of pollution in close proximity to their infrastructure and in many cases provide the ability to confirm the absence of pollution so that operations may continue unhindered.

The device can inform farmers about the conditions of their crops to help increase yield, and enable retailers to gain detailed information about potential harvests. It transmits data on air humidity, soil moisture and temperature, enabling field-by-field reporting from agricultural land, rice fields or other aquatic environments. Plants produce organic matter through photosynthesis, but only part of this matter is used for plant growth. The rest is excreted into the soil through the plant’s roots. In the soil, bacteria around the roots break down this organic matter, releasing electrons as a waste product. The technology developed by Plant-e harvests these electrons to power small electrical devices.

In addition to the technical development and testing, the legal basis for enabling truck platooning in real operation is currently being developed across Europe. However, in order for truck platooning to actually take place in practice and thus the potential advantages (e.g. fuel savings, increased traffic safety, positive effects on the working environment of truck drivers) can be used effectively, suitable business models are also required. "Platoonfinder" is a research project funded by the ESA (European Space Agency), which deals with the development of coordination and information service to support spontaneous truck platoon building and joining, strategic planning of road transports, general information about platooning on public and private roads to support optimised truck transports, contributing to reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, increased traffic safety, and optimised road utilisation.

Many recent events provide a clear picture of the dramatic impact in terms of safety of people and safeguard of the marine environment that a missing or wrong interpretation of meteo-marine conditions can cause. Meteo-marine conditions are important not only for the safety of navigation but also for the economics of commercial activities that are exercised on the sea. A study carried out by Corsica Ferries company, shows that, the impact of meteo-marine factors (wind, waves, currents) can be quantified as around 14% of the overall energy (i.e. fuel) consumption. The reduction, through the provision of specific commercial weather routing services, of the impact of meteomarine conditions on navigation safety, in terms of prevention of sea accidents (with associated costs) and on fuel consumption (with associated environmental benefits) constitutes the contest of Profumo services. Profumo proposed a collaborative model: end-users cooperate to the Profumo services providing their own geo- referenced Meteo-marine measures gathered from common on-board sensors. Weather models can produce good nowcasts and forecasts only if “fed” with a good and large amount of actual measured data. On seas meteorological stations are extremely sparse: Profumo used vessels as moving meteorological stations, which continuously provide this precious information. The meteorological data from vessels are not-certified, unusable as-is in the models. Therefore, a specific data processing technique merges and extracts proper information as input for the high resolution weather models.

Three large system operators explained their interest in supporting the study. Both user groups require dedicated status information of their stationary (infrastructure) and mobile (wagon) devices or waste containers. The Eureka system integrator and service provider for energy autonomous telematics units, sensors and data operation as GSOC collaborate free of charge. For use in railways or in container monitoring as it is done for recyclable waste, the M2M data to be transmitted are in the area of position / localisation, time, system status, aberrations or “anomalies” of the to be monitored device as well as of critical infrastructure that is required for e.g. seamless transport chains (e.g. bridges, railroads, etc.). An operational scenario for e.g. railway application has already been evaluated in detail within the GP-AIMS project. The most stringent user needs are global 24/7 availability and service, extremely low communication cost, very small bandwidth per sensor, extremely low available energy at the sensor device/energy-autonomous operation, able to work in harsh environmental conditions.

To achieve this the project was to support innovators during the whole incubation process, starting from the moment an idea is submitted, to targeted support for integration of a prototype and to the final provision of a set of recommendations at the end of the pilot period. A satellite-optimised suite of tools called SaToolBox was developed to allow the applicants to focus on their core solution rather than re-creating basic functionalities such as Multicast, VoIP or web-conferencing over satellite. At the same time a wider satellite technology choice was offered and therefore higher flexibility for testing. Access to the SatADSL Service Delivery Platform for the provision of services was tailored to user requirements (dedicated, contended, volume-based, VNOs…) and a set of Value-Added Services (Customer Management Tool, Network Monitoring, automatic payments, hotspots…). The project has been concluded in September 2017. The SATLAS incubator has been successfully deployed and tested, with four out of the five selected ideas graduating successfully. The incubated ideas in the field of Internet of Things, optimized communications, agriculture, tourism, worked with the SATLAS consortium to build up or improve their product, using the resources provided by SATLAS. Pilots where executed in Europe and in Africa. The successful graduates of SATLAS either achieved commercial success during/after the pilots or obtained lessons learned and established collaborations that will allow them to reach their goals. The SATLAS consortium has also been engaged in novel applications and will continue working with some of the graduates beyond the SATLAS contract.

Worldwide, there are three major manufacturers of space solar cells based on III-V semiconductors, with Europe’s Azur Space GmbH in competition with the US Emcore and Spectrolab. The development process involves improvements and fine-tuning of the structure, which lasts more than 10 years. The maximum practically achievable efficiency for space is 30% at the beginning of life and 25% at end of life. In 2003 Fraunhofer ISE and RWE SSP realised the first generation of fully European triple-junction space solar cells in the RWE-27% class, with a second generation RWE-28% following in 2009 being employed by missions including Alphabus and Galileo. The current third generation RWE-30% class represents the final stage of lattice-matched triple junction solar cell technology. The next generation will target cost and mass reduction, and push efficiency up to 33%, with new technologies under study including lattice-matching on germanium, lattice mis-matching, quantum cells and thin cells.

This allows manufacturers to reduce warranty costs by proactively eliminating potential sources of problems and identifying invalid warranty claims, and to create new revenue channels by reselling the predictive analysis service to fleet operators and distributors, and deliver more value to  fleet operators who are able to do their maintenance more efficiently, reduce costs related to maintenance services, vehicle parts and resources allocation, and reduce forced downtime resulting of vehicles breakdown, by acting upon Stratio Platform Alerts and Default Trouble Codes reporting. The use of the Galileo navigation satellite system by Stratio’s Databox allows an improvement of the resolution from 30 meters to 1 meter compared to the use of the GPS module only. Moreover, the time of cold fix (i.e., correcting the position of the vehicle for the first time) is reduced from 2 minutes approximately to 15 seconds. Finally the use of Galileo is allowing our device to increase coverage within cities near tall buildings and zones that are densely arborized. Besides vehicle sensor data, Stratio Artificial Intelligence algorithms for fault and root cause detection are dependent on external enrichers, such as location, altitude, sloping, road temperature, among others. Most external enrichers are collected from third-party services through APIs, based on a provided geolocation other, such as road slope can be obtained by using GNSS. EGNOS and Galileo also fulfil Stratio’s needs by reducing signal error, significantly reduce the fix time in all conditions, cold, warm or hot start.

Energy companies and local and National EU Governments are some of the user groups who have an obligation to comply with the stated regulations. The ThermCERT system allows for a city-wide impartial situational awareness with regular data acquisition of the city’s thermal performance. This allows the ineffective use of energy to be spotted. Conventional data aggregation methods lag in temporal resolution, spatial coverage, are resource intensive to implement, and do not provide the granularity to be able to spot problems on the ground. The output of the ThermCERT system is available through data aggregation and integration from multiple satellite sources. The ThermCERT system represents an opportunity to gain an impartial overview of the built environment by capturing the thermal performance of the whole city at consistent regularity. Additionally, the system enables the analysis of urban data acquisitions to identify problematic areas by a range of parameters derived from satellite observations. A high resolution in situ data acquisition is enabled for thermal inspection of building facades at a closer glance. The ThermCERT system makes use of Sentinels-1 & -2, WorldView, Pleiades, and other very high resolution multispectral satellite missions, in order to derive building parameters for the building stock classification purpose. Landsat 8 and Terra ASTER thermal bands will enable city-wide thermal energy intensity distribution analyses. Satellite navigation is deployed to geo-reference the data sets collected at the ground level for the relevant property objects.

Together with space sensor technology that could be used in new offshore drilling tools, these developments were the result of several technology demonstrator projects just completed for ESA’s Technology Transfer Programme (TTPO). The wider use of unmanned autonomous underwater vehicles in the offshore oil and gas industry calls for new technologies and advanced materials that can handle extremely harsh environments. ‘Ti6-4’ titanium is used to produce the hydrazine fuel tanks for the European Ariane 5 rocket, and when combined with the special ‘hot gas pressure forming’ technique, the result is a strong and extremely corrosion-resistant structure. The same material and process could help in solving corrosion problems encountered in offshore underwater equipment. Another spin-off with a big potential could come from the sensors carried by planetary landers to measure magnetic fields. This could lead to smaller sensors for oil and gas drilling tools that draw less power than those used today.
