The need for higher spatio-temporal resolution Earth observation increases rapidly. To fill this need, the Deployable Space Telescope (DST) project aims to make a light-weight, low-volume deployable telescope. In doing so, the achievable ground resolution is high while the cost per telescope stays low. This allows for the DST to be used in...

The performance of an Indoor Positioning System is highly related to the placement of the transmitting nodes that are used as references for the positioning estimations. Within this graduation project, we propose a methodology that can be used to optimize such a deployment and thus, increase the performance of an Indoor Positioning System that a...

Bottom-up thermal-mechanical design and analysis of a deployable baffle, which serves as a deployable thermal control system for the Deployable Space Telescope. Research being conducted on how to create a stable thermal environment for the mirror support structures so that in-orbit thermo-elastic drift budgets will be met, as well as designing...

The purpose of the thesis was to design a deployable thermal shielding baffle for the Deployable Space Telescope to reduce thermal gradients on the optical elements. As a result of a trade-off, the deployment was chosen to be based on an inflatable structure. The baffle consists of aluminium-kapton booms that form a cylindrical shape, and are...

The Deployable SpaceTelescope Project was started at Delft University of Technology in 2014. The projectaims to develop an ultra-high resolution Earth Observation telescope with aresolution of 0.25m, but with a much lower mass and volume than its competitorscurrently in operation. In order to meet the stringent mass...

Deployable morphing aircraft are gaining popularity in the academic and industrial world. Their deployability offer the possibility to be stored and takes less space. This is advantageous in volume limited applications like space explorations, where every cubic centimeter is important. Another field where this aircraft is increasingly used is...

The thesis discusses the design of the secondary mirror support structure for the deployable space telescope. In the thesis the entire support system is considered, including system layout and mirror interface. A selection of hinge concepts were identified and final concepts were selected in trade-offs. The mid hinge was selected to be an...

In this thesis, the development of a deployment mechanism for a primary mirror of a space telescope is discussed. A mistake has been found in the earlier work on the design of this subsystem, due to which the design is set back to a concept selection phase. A trade-off has been made between several concepts. A simplified thermal model that...

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 use of deployable structures for space telescopes has the advantage of enabling options to improve their optical performance and reducing the launch volume. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST), which is currently developed by the Space Systems Engineering (SSE) department, will make use of a high precision deployable structure to extend the...

When a web service or application evolves, its database schema --- tables, constraints, and indices --- often need to evolve along with it. Depending on the database, some of these changes require a full table lock, preventing the service from accessing the tables under change. To deal with this, web services are typically taken offline...

Extreme events, including natural and man-made disasters such as typhoons, floods, tsunamis, earthquakes and terrorist attacks have become the largest destructions around the world over the years. Their impacts can be calamitous devastating entire countries overnight and making millions of people suffer. Due to the above disasters, bridges are...

Sub-meter resolution satellite imagery serves a more and more important role in applications ranging from environmental protection, disaster response and precision farming to defence and security. Earth Observation at these resolutions has long been the realm of large and heavy telescopes. The costs of building and launching such systems are...

The deployment of passive, spherical lander pods provides a low-cost, low-risk technique for measuring the (sub-)surface of asteroids and comets. In this masters thesis, we numerically investigate the feasibility of such pods through the development of simulation software. This software models the complex gravity field of asteroids, as well as...

Technical, social and environmental developments are driving energy system stakeholders to reexamine how their energy needs are met. The conventional method of building large centralized generators to meet a community's energy needs is being questioned as smaller energy sources become more efficient and economical. These smaller sources,...
