                         generate 3-dimensional images of the Earth's surface. The 
                         distributed satellite system takes advantage of different 
                         perspectives towards a given target area and uses photogrammetric 
                         methods. Here by distributed control technologies a 
                         formation/constellation of 9 cooperating small satellites is 
                         realized. The application scenario focusses on characterization of 
                         ash clouds from volcano eruptions, addressing ash distribution 
                         profiles in different heights. This provides useful information to 
                         plan detour maneuvers for airplanes to avoid damage for engines.",
