About SRTI- BAS:
The Space Research and Technology Institute at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (SRTI-BAS) carries out fundamental and applied studies in the field of Space Physics, Remote Sensing of the Earth and Planets, and Aerospace Systems and Technologies. The priorities of SRTI-BAS are:
• Solar-Terrestrial and Space Physics (solar wind, magnetospheric and ionospheric physics, high and middle atmospheric physics, space weather);
• High-energy astrophysics, galactic cosmic rays;
• Medico-biological studies, space biotechnologies, heliobiology, telemedicine;
• Design, development and transfer of methods, instrumentation and technologies for remote sensing of the Earth, regional and global monitoring of the environment and security;
• Research in the field of obtaining and application of new super hard materials;
• Development of innovative aerospace instrumentation and technologies, as well as their transfer to economy.
SRTI-BAS, as beneficiary of Grant Contract BG161PO003-1.2.04-0053-C0001, under OP „Development of the Competitiveness of the Bulgarian Economy 2007-2013”,procedure BG161PO003-1.2.04 „Development of Applied Studies in Bulgarian Research Organizations”, is implementing project: “Information Complex for Aerospace Monitoring of the Environment“ (ICASME).
The major objective of the project is development of applied research at SRTI-BAS through implementation of ICASME.
The ICASME consists of three major structural units, encompassed by three major activities:
Activity 1 - delivery, installation, and commissioning of Field Measurement Complex (FMC);
Activity 2 - delivery, installation, and commissioning of Data Processing and Analysis Laboratory (DPAL);
Activity 3 - delivery, installation, and commissioning of Laboratory of Selection, Training, and Control for Operators of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (LSTC_OUAV).
Metrisys provides measurement and modeling solutions for engineers, including solutions of some of the leading brands in geomatics, test & measurent, environmental monitoring and infrastructure software (Leica Geosystems, Hexagon Geospatial, Bentley Systems, National Instruments, Xylem Analytics, Amberg Technologies, Geomax, Sensefly and more). It offers a wide range of services including system integration, maintenance, repairs and training. With headquarters in Sofia and branch offices in Athens and Nairobi, Metrisys serves the territories of Bulgaria, Greece and East Africa.
