The Italian Mars Society (IMS) is a non-profit organization, existing from 2004, as Italian branch of the International Mars Society, created in the USA by Robert Zubrin. IMS is a member of the Mars Society European network. The foundation scope of the Italian Mars Society is to promote research projects devoted to Mars Exploration and the involvement of SMEs and large enterprises in the new economy related to space exploration. IMS is currently spearheading the European MaRs Analog Station for Advanced Technologies Integration (ERAS) project. The project aims to address the major issues that could jeopardize a crewed mission to Mars and are not adequately being addressed at existing terrestrial Mars analogs.
- Implementing three optimized artificial neural networks with back propagation for 'Solar storms forecasting' The ability of Neural networks to efficiently extract patterns can be used to provide a reliable method for forecasting solar storms. Similar systems have been successfully implemented for such purposes. This implementation will train three optimized neural networks using GOES satellite data. This will then be integrated with the C3 functionalities via the DCS framework. The result will be a reliable and robust warning system for Solar Storms.
- Using an EEG neuroheadset to control rovers The goal of this project is to write a software that uses an EEG neuroheadset to control rovers (and possibly other devices).
