Low downlink data rates limit the scientific and commercial return from small satellites. Now with constellations of small satellites becoming popular, the amount of data generated in low Earth orbit will be greater than ever. A novel data downlink architecture for small satellites is investigated that uses non-geostationary orbit (mega-...

In 2024, a rover will leave Earth on a daring mission to explore Phobos, one of the two moons of Mars. Phobos has a severe thermal environment, with surface temperatures ranging from -153 °C to +57 °C and an 8-hour diurnal cycle. This work focuses on validating the performance of the locomotion system of the Mars Moon eXploration (MMX) rover....
