During the last decades, large deployable structures are starting to be seen as a plausible configuration to multiple space missions, such as solar sailing, LEO (Low Earth Orbit) deorbiting missions or solar power generation. Technological advances in key areas, such as thin film solar cells or new deployment methods, as well as the...

This thesis studies the radiation dose deposited on a 6U CubeSat in interplanetary orbit. The European Space Agency’s radiation data tool SPENVIS has been used to determine the proton flux in interplanetary space during a solar particle event which occurs only once every one hundred years. SPENVIS has further been applied to obtain a dose depth...

The TU Delft Deployable Space Telescope proposes to meet increasing demand for high spatio-temporal resolution Earth observation imagery by reducing the mass, volume and launch cost of space telescopes by using segmented deployable optics. A 3DOF piston/ tip/ tilt fine positioning mechanism is proposed to actively align the primary mirror...

Large-scale liquid rocket engines require high-speed turbopumps to inject cryogenic propellants into the combustion chamber. Modeling the impact of secondary path and leakage flows on the performance and axial thrust of the pump is critical during the early design phase. Previous studies derived simplified models and empirical correlations to...

With the introduction of Interplanetary Laser Ranging (ILR), the acquired tracking measurements accuracy of planets can be improved drastically (up to a few millimeters) which can result in an improvement in planetary ephemerides of not only the planet which is the target of laser ranging but also other bodies in the solar system due to...

This master thesis addresses the need for a telemetry processing for Delfi Space spacecraft operations, a nano-satellite program of the Delft University of Technology. It lays the groundwork for the telemetry processing system (TPS) implementation and explores the design guidelines for a highly scalable but robust and adaptive architecture.

Agrawal, Abhishek (author)
We study the orbital motion of regolith around asteroids, lofted from the surface due to impact cratering events, to understand the displacement of material on the surface and in orbit. The cratering events could be natural such as from meteoroid impacts, or they can be induced from spacecraft activities such as in-situ sample collection....

Space exploration could be significantly aided by combining the disciplines of machine learning and computer vision, but these disciplines need to be developed further for specific space-related applications to have merit. One of the applications for space exploration is the detection of certain structures designating areas of interest. This...

Fragments of asteroids and comets constantly encounter the Earth and Moon in their orbits, impacting them as meteoroids. Observations of meteor showers on Earth have been studied for at least 50 years, in order to construct accurate Solar System meteoroid models. More recently, Earth-based telescopic observations of the light flashes produced by...

As technology improves, increasingly higher resolution payload can be achieved using Cubesats for Earth observation. The diffraction limit prevents the resolution to up to a few meters for these missions and are confined to Very Low Earth Orbits (VLEO). At these altitudes, strong disturbances act on the system, limiting its lifetime and the...

The objective of this MSc thesis was to design a miniaturised Raman spectrometer that can be used in terrestrial deep ice applications of the IceMole probe. This probe is a manoeuvrable subsurface system for clean in situ analysis and sampling, developed at FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences since 2008, that is now part of a bigger DLR...

Plasma actuators are fully electronic devices without any moving mechanical parts. Hence they have increased reliability and lower complexity when compared to conventional actuators used for same purposes. Mobile components also contribute to increased vibrations, noise, loss of energy and they require lubrication. Non-thermal plasma actuators...
