The first African initiative for planetary and space science (AFIPS) international workshop together with the annual conference on ethnic space research and technology development started on Monday. His Excellence Dr. Shumete Gizaw, Prime Minister of Innovation and Technology and Dr. Solomon Belay, Director General of ESSTI, opens the conference. The purpose of AFIPS is a better view of the economic, cultural and societal impact of research activities in planetary and space science in Africa, a sustainable scientific and advanced strategy for the development of planetary and space science in Africa, an improved strategy for attracting national and international funding.
Dr. Shumete Gizaw stressed in his speech that such an international conference is crucial for developing countries such as Ethiopia to improve science and technology. Also H.Eo Tefera Walwa presents space science and technology for the development of Africans; experience from Ethiopia to local and international participants. Several keynotes were presented. Dr. Worku zewdie presented evaluation of status and national demand from agricultural earth observation technology. Development of strategic astronomy in Ethiopia and East African region keynote speech was presented by Dr. Mirjana povic. Also, Mr.Daniel Atnafu presented the performance of Nequick -2, IRI plas 2017 and the GIM models over Ethiopia during the rising, rising and falling phase of solar cycle 24.
Dr. Solomon Belay, Director General of ESSTI, shows the current status of the astronomy research at the Observatory and Research Center. Dr. Solomon focuses on future research work on expanding the scope of the thematic areas, publishing multiple papers, joint research and serial fund campaigns. On the other hand, Mr. Melaku Muka operational web-based meteorological, hydrological and agricultural dilution of drought and infrastructure forecasts related to Ethiopia's case.
Characterization of coronal mass ejection at the Type 2 sunburn crack start title was presented by Mr. Cashed Cashier. Mr. Eyasu Leta tells of Ethiopian altitude system modernization project, and he concluded that the thickness of the crust falls towards the northern and eastern part of Afar, which is magmatic intrusion, and the crust / mantle boundary falls deep. Sir. Tilahun Getachew talks about examining AGN contributions on their host galaxies and how it affects morphological classification. Mini discussion after the presentation is toke place.
Dr. Sylvain Bouley presents research astronomy with small to medium-sized telescopes, a wide range of opportunities for astronomical observations in Africa. The influence of flash on the moon and Jupiter and other related concepts was mentioned. On the other hand, Prof. Young-Soo Kim on a method for SLR and telescope construction. Mr. Hozayfa presents observational constraints on the flat dynamic dark energy cosmological. Discussion among participants and forwarding questions and ideas on the topics presented was also an integral part of the conference.
A morphological study of galaxies in ZWC10024 + 1652, a galaxy cluster by a z-0.4 redshift, was presented by Mr Zeleke Amado and regional restoration of gravity anomaly from the inversion of diagonal components of the GOCE gravity sensor; A case study in Ethiopia's presentation was conducted by Mr. Andente
Dr. Tsegaye Tadesse, Dr. Negative Mezgebe, Dr. Ahemed Mekonnen present on the remote-sensitive early warning and dry security application of food security systems in the Greater Horn, the effect of moderate geomagnetic storm on EPBS across East Africa, and advances in aviation technology for Africa's planetary and space program renascence. At the second session, Mr. Tesfay Yemane, Eyoas Eregetu and other keynote speakers their projects. For example, assessment and mitigation of the effect of geomagnetic storm on the electricity grid over Ethiopia, plan8 weight project and other important projects are presented.
