Found 10 records similar to Strato-Science 2018 campaign - Stratospheric Balloon Flight - Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Stratos Telemetry Subsystem
Here is data coming from a balloon, as high as the Eiffel all, and whose utility is to test new technology applications before being placed on satellites for long-duration space missions. This dataset contains the telemetry data obtained from the different sub systems during the AUSTRAL2017 mission and two sets of pictures from different cameras. The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) STRATOS program participated in the AUSTRAL2017 flight campaign which took place in Australia on April 8, 2017. One of the goals of this flight was to launch hardware at altitudes of around 40 kilometres and observe the different data that was captured throughout the flight.
The CASSIOPE Contribution Program was authorized for a five-year period on October 30, 2003. The project was extended due to the launch of the satellite being postponed several times. The launch took place in September 2013. The CASSIOPE mission combines three program elements: it provides for the integration of two payloads, the Cascade telecommunications demonstration payload and the Enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (ePOP) scientific payload, on a single generic Canadian small satellite (smallsat) bus.

This series documents the responses provided by DFO Science for issues handled via the Science Response Processes (SRPs). The SRPs are generally used when Science has to respond to urgent and unforeseen requests for scientific information / advice or to respond to a request for which advisory precedents already exist.
For more information on SRPs and the circumstances they can be used, consult the Operational Guidelines for Science Response Processes (SRPs).
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)' Sun-Earth Science Business Line (SESS-BL). The SESS-BL's fundamental purpose is to support Canada's contribution to the advancement of the scientific knowledge concerning the Sun-Earth system, and the application of this scientific knowledge in a range of policy areas such as weather forecasting, environmental monitoring, climate change, natural disaster management and mitigation, and the protection of private and public infrastructures in space and on Earth. The evaluation covers a five-year period, from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2017, and examines the SESS-BL's relevance and performance. The evaluation was conducted by PRA Inc., on behalf of the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate, between September 2017 and September 2018.
The Near Earth Object Surveillance Satellite (NEOSSat) project began in February 2005 with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Department of National Defence (DND), establishing NEOSSat as a collaboration combining two projects: DND's space surveillance mission HEOSS (High Earth Orbit Space Surveillance) and the CSA's asteroid finding project NESS (Near Earth Space Surveillance). The two missions share the same passive optical sensor payload integrated into a multi-mission microsatellite bus. Each mission, however, is directed and managed by a different science team. Following a competitive process, the NEOSSat development contract, encompassing Phases B, C and D, was awarded to Dynacon in July 2007.
This entry provides access to spatial layers that feature in the Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Science Advice Report titled ‘Delineation of Significant Areas of Coldwater Corals and Sponge-Dominated Communities in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic Marine Waters and their Overlap with Fishing Activity’ and CSAS Research Document titled ‘Analysis of the overlap between fishing effort and Significant Benthic Areas in Canada's Atlantic and Eastern Arctic marine waters’.
These spatial layers show cumulative fishing effort in Canada’s Atlantic and Eastern Arctic waters for the years 2005-2014. Production of the spatial layers was based on vessel monitoring system (VMS) and commercial logbook data sources. Fishing effort is provided in standardized spatial layers for various fisheries groupings: all fisheries combined, aggregations of gear type, and fisheries classes as defined in the CSAS reports.
The objective of the audit project was to determine whether a management framework is in place to ensure that the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Class Grant and Contribution Program to Support Research, Awareness and Learning in Space Science and Technology (the Program) is managed in accordance with relevant legislation and policies and the approved terms and conditions of the Program, and whether there is proper accountability reporting of the Program.
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Implementation of Gender-Based Analysis Plus
practices at Canadian Space Agency (CSA) since the CSA’s GBA+ Policy
took effect in 2017. This is the first thematic evaluation at the CSA and it was carried out by the CSA’s Audit and Evaluation
Directorate between January 2020 and March 2021. This evaluation is included in the CSA's five-year
Evaluation Plan and was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results
(2016). The concept of GBA Plus is not new to the federal government and has existed for decades through the
principles of gender equality.
The mandate of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is "to promote the peaceful use and development of space, to advance the knowledge of space through science and to ensure that space science and technology provide social and economic benefits for Canadians."Footnote 1 Established in March 1989, with a status equivalent to that of a Department of the Government of Canada, the CSA is responsible for the coordination and implementation of space policies and programs, the application and diffusion of space technology, and the promotion of commercial exploitation of space.
The CSA Audit and Evaluation Directorate commissioned the services of Science-Metrix to undertake an Evaluation of CSA's Space Astronomy Missions (SAM) and Planetary Missions (PM) programs as per the Five-Year Departmental Evaluation Plan and in accordance with the 2016 Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results.Footnote 2 The evaluation was conducted during the 2017–2018 fiscal year, under the direction of the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate (specifically, the CSA's Evaluation function) and covers the period from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2016.
