The objective of this paper is to investigate which approach would lead to more reliable CubeSats: full subsystem redundancy or improved testing. Based on data from surveys, the reliability of satellites and subsystems is estimated using a Kaplan–Meier estimator. Subsequently, a variety of reliability models is defined and their maximum...

Piezoelectric actuators are a very attractive technology for active optics mechanisms in space applications due to their very high precision and reliability. However, self-heating of these actuators may be limit their use in space or under high loads, due to the limited ability to evacuate heat. Test procedures that reproduce the operational...

The estimation of the relative pose of an inactive spacecraft by an active servicer spacecraft is a critical task for close-proximity operations, such as In-Orbit Servicing and Active Debris Removal. Among all the challenges, the lack of available space images of the inactive satellite makes the on-ground validation of current monocular...

The use of deep neural networks (DNNs) in terrestrial applications went from niche to widespread in a few years, thanks to relatively inexpensive hardware for both training and inference, and large datasets available. The applicability of this paradigm to space systems, where both large datasets and inexpensive hardware are not readily...

Laser satellite communications provides an attractive application for optical communications. It provides more bandwidth with improved security at potentially a lower cost due to reduced size weight and power (SWAP) and reduced license cost compared to radio frequencies (RF) communications. These advantages have been recognized for years and...

The purpose of this work is to present a novel CubeSat architecture, aimed to explore Near Earth Asteroids. The fast growth in small satellite commercial-off-the-shelf technologies, which characterized the last decade of space industry, is exploited to design a 3U CubeSat able to provide a basic scientific return sufficient to improve the...

This paper discusses principles and techniques to evaluate processors for dependable computing in space applications. The focus is on soft errors, which dominate the failure rate of processors in space. Error, failure and propagation models from literature are selected and employed to estimate the failure rate due to soft errors in typical...

Small satellites with increased capabilities in terms of power and propulsion are being demanded for future missions. This paper addresses an alternative bi-modal solution which consists of a solar thermal propulsion system coupled with a micro-Organic Rankine Cycle system, to co-generate thrust and electrical power. Current literature on bi...

Small satellites are receiving increased recognition in the space domain due to their reduced associated launch costs and shorter lead time when compared to larger satellites. However, this advantage is often at the expense of mission capabilities, such as available electrical power and propulsion. A possible solution is to shift from the...
