DTM Technologies are integrating TIME SCALE hardware components into the Modular Test Bed. The finished product will be used for plant cultivation experiments for ground testing of the TIME SCALE equipment.

Prototech AS has designed and manufactured the breadboard version of the Plant Cultivation Chamber. This chamber will be used for plant cultivation during the ground testing of the TIME SCALE equipment.

The auto calibrating, auto sampling CleanGrow ion-sensor won the first prize in the Food & Drink category of Royal Society of Chemistry’s Emerging Technologies Competition 2017.

The TIME SCALE algae photobioreactor concept and design for future algae research in Space has been completed.

TIME SCALE aims at inspiring next generation space explorers. Students at several universities were invited to inspirational and social space-events in February and March 2017, in cooperation with ESA Education Office.

CleanGrow has developed a prototype of an auto calibrating and auto sampling ion-sensor for monitoring individual components in nutrient solutions for plant cultivation.

In TIME SCALE, researchers from Wageningen University & Research develop a Water and Nutrient Delivery System to provide required nutrients to plants in a future hydroponic system designed for space.

Stressed plants emit volatile organic compounds – gases that can be detected by advanced analytical methods such as mass spectrometry and gas chromatography. In TIME SCALE, Interscience is developing technology and methods for a future plant health monitoring systems.

In the TIME SCALE project, CleanGrow is developing an auto calibrating and auto sampling ion-sensor for continuous measurement of individual components in nutrient solutions for plant cultivation.

Ghent University develops remote sensing technology in order to monitor plant health status. The technology and know-how harbor large potential for exploitation in terrestrial precision agriculture and horticulture, and also open novel avenues for life support systems in space.

Researchers at University of Stuttgart are working on algae cultivation concepts for future applications in regenerative life support systems.

Prototech is the technical coordinator of the TIME SCALE project and develops a Plant Cultivation Chamber for ground-testing of improved EMCS hardware.

For ground-testing of improved plant cultivation modules, the TIME SCALE project includes design and development of a Modular Test Bed by DTM Technologies.
