Harp Technologies has signed a contract with Thales Alenia Space France to support the “MetOp Second Generation Phase A/B1” project for the European Space Agency (ESA). Thales Alenia Space is a joint venture between Thales and Finmeccanica and a European leader in satellite systems.
February 2, 2011: Harp Technologies signs a contract with Astrium SAS.
Harp Technologies has signed a contract with Astrium SAS (France) to provide expertise in “STSE – High-Resolution Microwave Wind and Temperature (MICROWAT) Mission Concept Study” for the European Space Agency (ESA). Astrium is an EADS company and a leading space manufacturer.
December 31, 2010: Harp Technologies completes another successful year.
During 2010, Harp Technologies has continued to extend its customer base and to improve its capabilities. With a continued positive, growing net profit, the year 2010 can be considered successful.
September 14, 2010: Harp Technologies successfully completes a project for the ESA.
In cooperation with Sula Systems Ltd (UK), Harp Technologies has successfully completed the activity “Advanced Internal Calibration Techniques for Post EPS Radiometers” under a programme funded by the European Space Agency (ESA). The results of the activity can be used beneficially when evaluating different calibration options for the future European remote sensing satellites. The activity has also strengthened Harp Technologies’ position as an expert on microwave sensors.
June 24, 2010: Harp Technologies participates in radar technology development.
Harp Technologies has joined radar technology development in the activity “Measurement, Monitoring and Environmental Assessment” (MMEA) of the Strategic centre for science, technology and innovation of the Finnish energy and environment cluster (CLEEN Ltd). The microwave technology that will be developed within the activity will help Harp Technologies to serve its customers even faster and in a more cost-efficient way.
February 11, 2010: Harp Technologies successfully completes a project for the ESA.
In cooperation with the Technical University of Denmark and with the European Space Agency (ESA) as the customer, Harp Technologies has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of an Intelligent Digital Back-End for future spaceborne remote sensing radiometers. In the project, a system was developed to detect and mitigate anthropogenic Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) in real-time over a broad bandwidth while minimising the loss of uncontaminated radiometer data.
