Objective

Deliverables

  • Micro-exhibition for Science Museums

    Micro-exhibition including video, hands-on stands, interactive discussions, classical films & conferences by experts from UPWARDS & others. (M18-M30 depending on stakeholders)

  • 1st video on scientific challenges & UPWARDS

    Production of 1st Video about the Mars scientific challenges addressed by UPWARDS and the presentation of the project to the general public.

  • MSL and ExoMars EDL atmospheric profiles and the performance of advanced filtering methods

    Reconstructed atmospheric variables using MSL EDL trajectory & forebody pressure data. Comparison of the performances of advanced filtering methods on reconstructed MSL trajectory & atmospheric variables. Reconstructed trajectory & atmospheric variables for ExoMars EDL & related publications.

  • State of the art at the start of the project

    The goal is to describe the state of the art in the different directions of UPWARDS and at the beginning of the project, as a reference to define the starting point and to evaluate goals and achievements throughout the duration of the project and at the end of it.

  • Upper atmosphere temperature and density datasets

    Dataset of vertical profiles of CO2 and CO in the upper atmosphere obtained from the analysis of OMEGA and PFS IR measurements, and of the temperature derived from them

  • Vertical profiles of H2O for selected seasons and locations

    Vertical profiles of H2O and CO for selected seasons and locations in a format facilitating its dissemination (PDS, or ESA-based ExoMars archive format).

  • Multiple-scattering radiative transfer code for atmospheric limb observations

    Development, testing and validation of multiple-scattering radiative transfer model for spherical geometry to be used for limb observation data.

  • Exploitation, Dissemination and C&EPO strategic plan

    This delivery will clearly define the tasks related to the Dissemination and Exploitation activities within the Consortium, including release of new high-level data to ESA archives, the creation and preservation of a reference archive of the Consortium publications, reports and deliveries, adn the outline of the diverse directions to promote the exploitation of the UPWARDS results. Design and distribution of an evaluated C&EPO strategic plan, including an identity project design & a brand guidelines document.
