Mitigation strategies which eliminate existing space debris, such as with Active Space Debris Removal (ASDR) missions, are now more important than ever regarding the ever-growing space debris population problem. One of the considered ASDR approaches uses a net as a capturing strategy. The benefits of such strategy are to allow for a large...

This thesis analyses the possibility of creating a portable Doppler tracking ground station using commercial of the shelf components. This solution is called DopTrackBox and is based on TU Delft’s DopTrack. This system uses the Doppler shift of radio signals received from satellites to analyse their location and velocity. Different experiments...

High-frequency combustion instabilities represent the main technical risk faced by design engineers when developing new chemical rocket propulsion systems. Such instabilities are driven by the coupling between the flames’ heat release rate and the combustion chamber’s acoustic field. As such, they can only be assessed during detailed design...

The use of additive manufacturing (AM) can potentially offer significant benefits to the design and performance of resistojet components but has so far only seen limited research in this application. The goal of this study was to investigate the possibility of 3D printing a functional resistojet heating chamber and the potential benefits that...

Due to the insufficient worldwide efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and related global warming, marine cloud brightening (MCB) is gaining interest as an instrument to artificially lower Earth's temperature. MCB is based on exploiting the aerosol-cloud effects to enhance the albedo of stratocumulus clouds and prolong their lifetime by...

Though NanoSats are becoming increasingly capable of featuring active payloads, and acquiring inertial data at arcsec level precision; the payload operational duty-cycle largely remains limited by its data downlink capabilities. NanoSat laser communication terminal (LCT) promises 1 Gbps data downlink capabilities. However, LEO to ground free...

The Micropropulsion Group of the department of Space Systems Engineering of the Delft University of Technology is developing resistojet thrusters for small satellites operating on the vapourisation of liquid water via an electric heater and its subsequent expansion via a nozzle into vacuum for the generation of thrust. As the water vapour...

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) is a European mission for the detection of gravitational waves in space set to be launched in 2034. The mission will see the deployment of 3 spacecraft in heliocentric orbit keeping a triangular formation with side length of 2.5 million km. Laser beams are exchanged between the spacecraft by means of...

Since the discovery of plumes on Saturn's icy moon Enceladus' southern pole by Cassini in 2005, these phenomena have been observed and simulated by computer models. This study takes a next step in icy-moon plume research and proposes a design for a laboratory set-up that recreates such a plume here on Earth. This set-up consists of a cylindrical...

The investigation of small bodies in the Solar System such as asteroids and comets is of increasing interest to the space exploration community for scientific and security reasons. A key enabling technology is the availability to control position and attitude of spacecraft for asteroid close-proximity operations. Dynamics and control issues...

Future space exploration missions on solar system bodies will require landing safely and precisely, with an accuracy of ~100 m at touchdown. This accomplishment is made challenging by vehicle design limitations, the dearth of onboard situational awareness, and the limited knowledge of the variability of the landing terrain. To date, only the...

CONTEXT. Spectropolarimetry is proposed as a relatively new option in the field of remote sensing for the characterization of aerosol particles and the investigation of cloud properties, that are key factors for the enhancement of climate model's accuracy. The use of multi-wavelength, multi-angle information of the scattered flux and...

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...

DIMITRI is a tool that has been developed for monitoring the radiometric performance of optical instruments onboard Earth observation satellites. It includes a reflectance model through which a calibration coefficient is computed which is used for performance monitoring. In this thesis, the uncertainty that is associated with this coefficient is...
