Project Overview

SAMASCAM is a project that aims at creating a functional competitive system with a high degree of reliability. Subsequent to the research activity it will result a model of the system accompanied by the technical documentation.

General objectives and estimated results

The scientific objectives of the project are in accordance with the mission and the requirements proposed by the potential users, under the circumstances determined by increased performances and reducing costs in comparison with similar products. These are:

  • Applying new researches results and technologies in the field, based on a partnership between researchers and constructors/beneficiaries, given the conditions of a superior capitalization of each partner’s experience;
  • Applying integrated design and versatility and sustainable development principles;
  • New software design, specific to the application;
  • A new competitive product development, with a high degree of reliability.

In each progress phase of the project there are included measurable objectives that must be attained, specific to the type of performed activity:

  • For the fundamental research activities there will be formulated and verified hypothesis, conceptual models and theories regarding technologies and products that represent the object of the planned task, will be elaborated
  • For the industrial research studies and analysis with regard to new suggested solutions, will be elaborated, documentations and experimental models will be developed, and the validity and feasibility of the suggested solutions will be tested,
  • For the experimental development, there will be prepared the technical documentation of the product(s) and of the systems of which model resulted from the fundamental and/or industrial research.
