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...

Research on laser communication technology for satellites has led to a sufficient understanding of this technology to start working on commercial applications. In this work a design is proposed for a lasercom system for CubeSats, a type of nanosatellites that is used increasingly often for commercial missions. The goal of this design is to offer...

Missions to Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are a growing trend in spaceflight. The interest for such bodies is not only justified by the threat that they represent for the Earth, but also because they are potential sources of extra-terrestrial materials, provide windows to the past of the Solar System and to planetary formation, and offer a good...

The phenomenon by which a spacecraft can both approach a celestial body and start performing revolutions around it, without needing to manoeuvre in between, is known as ballistic capture. For ballistic capture to take place, the spacecraft must be under the gravitational influence of at least 2 celestial bodies. Therefore, it is possible to...

Cameras are used in various applications and one such common application has been space. Delfi Space is the CubeSat Development program of the Delft University of Technology and a subprogram of Defi-Space is Delfi-PQ which aims to develop PocketQubes which are an order of magnitude smaller than the CubeSat standards. One of the advanced payloads...

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...

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...

van der Linden, S.P. (author)
The definition of the CubeSat is already nearly two decades old. This results in the trend that a large fraction of CubeSat missions are leaving the domain of (educational) technology demonstration and entering that of commercial applications. Therefore a larger focus is put on the reliability and compatibility of commercial of the shelf systems...

The CubeSat platform has long since its introduction surpassed its original intend of being an educational and technology demonstration platform only. The recognition and acknowledgement of its potential has led to an everlasting hunger for more performance, which translates directly into a demand for more power. The power density of CubeSats is...

The problem of testing the performance of an attitude control system presents new challenges and opportunities when conducted on a CubeSat scale. This is the result of drastic reduction in physical properties (size, mass, torques) as well as project resources (funds, manpower, time) when compared to traditional satellite programs. This thesis...

Krusharev, I. (author)
The format and size specifications of the CubeSat platform require highly miniaturized subsystems, one of the most challenging ones being the propulsion system. Up to date, according to the authors' knowledge, only two CubeSats have successfully operated a propulsion system in space: CanX-2 in 2008 and Defil-n3Xt in 2013. The importance of a...

The purpose of this Thesis is to develop the design process of the pressurised propellant tank for a water resistojet, applicable to nanosatellite missions. The motivation of this system is its use on the CubeSat mission DelFFi, from the Technical University of Delft. The need for a small-sized pressure vessel is covered by the Detail Design...

DelFFi is a CubeSat mission with the objective to demonstrate formation flying and explore the composition of the upper atmosphere. The research performed in this master thesis focusses on the development of the system architecture of the Command and Data Handling Subsystem of the two identical satellites. Specifically three questions are...

Go, S.Y. (author)
Design of the different elements in the Structural Subsystem of Delfi-n3Xt. This is done by implementation of the lessons learned and solutions to problems encountered with Delfi-C3. First different options for CubeSats are considered and traded. Afterwards the detailed design is treated. Also the arrangement of the different subsystems and...

Since the start of CubeSat development different universities and organisations have succeeded in launching and operating their own satellites. Each of these institutes has their own ways in which these projects are organised.Furthermore each project has its own design philosophy and heritage that influence the project. What all these projects...

Maessen, D.C. (author)
New space debris mitigation guidelines require satellites in low Earth orbit to de-orbit within 25 years after end of life. This effectively limits the orbital altitude of conventional CubeSat satellites to 400-700 km. For CubeSats employing the generic inflatable de-orbit device discussed here, this range is extended to 910 km by increasing the...
