New research project AMADEE-20 Mars Simulation

AMADEE-20 is a Mars analog simulation taking place in the Negev Desert in Israel. The project is managed by the Austrian Space Forum (Österreichisches Weltraumforum – ÖWF/OeWF) and hosted by the Israeli Space Agency.

The mission of the research project AMADEE-20 is aimed to study equipment behaviour involving the simultaneous deployment of instruments and robotic vehicles with humans-in-the-loop, including research-grade spacesuit simulators. Furthermore, it is intended to develop platforms for testing life-detection or geoscientific techniques, robotic support tools providing a high situational awareness and to catalyse the visibility of planetary exploration. Lastly, it is targeted to evolve the know-how of managing crewed missions to Mars by deploying a realistic Mission Support decision making framework.

The project is managed by Prof. Dr. Vera Hagemann (University of Bremen, Department of Business Psychology and Human Resource Management) and Dr.-Ing. Christiane Heinicke (University of Bremen, ZARM - Center for Applied Space Technology and Microgravity). Additionally, Lara Watermann (M.Sc.) from the Department of Business Psychology and Human Resource Management supports the team.
