The ROSA Research Center (RRC) was organised in 1998 as an entity legally represented by ROSA. RRC joined all research capacities in a unique management.
A step in the development of the centre was the joint venture agreements concluded with CRUTA – the Romanian Center for Remote Sensing Applications in Agriculture – a SME laboratory initially organised as an independent branch of the ISPIF (Research and Development Institute for Land Use). A joint venture agreement was concluded with the Institute of Space Science in Bucharest.
Since 2001, the RRC has been selected by the Ministry of Education and Research as a Center of Excellence in Space Applications.
The fields of science and technology knowledge developed by RRC are: space dynamics, in particular small satellites and tethered systems, magnetic fluids and magneto-fluidic composites; earth observation (remote sensing) satellite data retrieval, processing, algorithms and software development, applications development; spatial information systems integration, Global Navigation Satellite Systems and space technology for risk management and security.
RRC developed, since 2003, R&D projects addressing national strategy, as well as technological development.
