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 thesis investigates the possible space application of a commercial 3D NAND memory as a radiation monitor. Literature has indicated that both traditional 2D and 3D flash memories are sensitive to ionizing radiation. Where the track of particle could be seen passing through the 3D architecture. A flash memory cell stores data with a collection...

Asteroids, or more formally, Small Solar System Bodies, offer a wealth of scientific knowledge and, increasingly, economic potential. Regrettably, because of their small size and the fact that the largest groups of asteroids in the solar system are situated tens of millions of kilometers from Earth, ground based observations yield limited data,...

In-space manufacturing proves more important now than ever. The capability of creating a sustainable manufacturing strategy for spare parts or tools would significantly improve both mass budget and costs. Therefore, additive manufacturing (3D printing) in space is seen as an enabler of future scenarios that explore beyond the current boundaries...

This thesis shows the mass reduction of a mechanical bracket, without compromising on thermal, EMC and structural aspects. The focus was on analysing thermal aspects related to bracket design. Models were made to show the deflection and solder layer stresses due to CTE mismatches between the bracket and PCB. A thermal heat transfer model was...
