Environment for Human Exploration and RObotic Experimentation in Space

Objective

The consortium e-HEROES aims at exploiting the existing data gathered on several
European and international space missions, and to produce new value-added data
products to provide the best estimate and prediction of the threats that
missions of exploration will encounter in reaching beyond the Earth orbit, to
the Moon, to Mars and beyond. The scope of the project is to characterise the
environment in space, to provide useful information for planning and
implementing space missions, manned or robotic. We plan to realize effective
scientific exploitation of space data combining different datasets from current
solar system robotic explorations with data from current and past space-based
and complementing ground-based observations, joined with new data sources from
the newest missions. We plan to add value to the data by better organising it
and cross link it, by applying state of the art models and developing new ones
to analyse it. We plan additionally to assimilate the heliospheric data in space
environment simulations. The wealth of data, models and simulations commanded by
the project will be used to characterise the evolution of space in time, looking
forward over the future at the possible scenarios for planning new missions. We
will consider key aspects on how the expected space environment can affect
missions, in terms of predicting the impact on reliability and correct
functionality of instrumentation as well as in terms of main radiation
components affecting the health of astronauts. The proposing team would realize
a wide international synergy in the fields of solar and space physics including
experts from 11 European countries, a space-faring partner from Russia, and
collaborators from US and Canada. The set of public deliverables published
on-line facilitates access to the higher level data for those scientists who are
not part of the team. The research work will be accompanied with wide
dissemination activity.
