We envision a radical redesign of Earth observation platforms for sustained operation at significantly lower altitudes than the current state of the art, using a combination of new aerodynamic materials, aerodynamic control and air-breathing electric propulsion for drag-compensation, for a variety of observation methods with the aim of creating a new platform paradigm.This vision requires foundati ...

Technology for Self Removal of Spacecraft (TeSeR)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2019,

Orbital space is getting increasingly crowded and a few collision events could jeopardize activities in important orbits and cause significant damage to the infrastructure in space. As a preventive measure to be included in future S/C, TeSeR proposes a universal post mission disposal module to be carried into orbit by any S/C to ensure its proper disposal after ending its service lifetime, be it p ...

Small Explorer for Advanced Missions (SEAM)

Start date: Sep 5, 2013, End date: Oct 1, 2016,

Nano-satellites are becoming a reality and are being used for increasingly complex missions. However, to facilitate more advanced scientific missions greater capabilities are needed in terms of mission life-time, communication bandwidth and attitude determination and control. Many science applications of nano-satellites are currently being explored for future implementation, especially in the US, ...

There is a distinct need for an improved method for accurate and inexpensive deployment and retrieval of seabed sensors and equipment. The AutoDrop will be hydro dynamically designed in order to glide through the water experiencing a minimum of drag. The rudders will maintain stability and change the direction if desired. It is important that the time used by the AutoDrop to travel from the surfac ...
