The transportation of payloads utilizing multiple drones presents a promising application for lifting heavier loads that exceed the payload capacity of a single drone. However, the cable-suspended payload introduces significant challenges to the system, and this research area remains relatively unexplored. In this work, a novel solution for...

As the space industry continues to grow rapidly, the development of reusable launch vehicles has become crucial in achieving cost-effective and sustainable access to space. Payload capacity optimisation has been at the forefront of this effort, leading to a renewed interest in hammerhead or bulbous payload fairing (PLF) configurations. These...

Bezsilla, Janos (author)
Nowadays, many space missions require highly accurate pointing for Earth observation or cosmic vision purposes. However, the vibration environment from a spacecraft's structure and reaction wheels can cause disturbances in its line-of-sight stability and severely impact image quality. Additionally, these effects are not known precisely due to...

A miniaturized instrument was developed to enable in-situ measurements of the radiation environment at the Moon. The instrument is designated to function as the science payload for the first mission of the Lunar Zebro nano-rover. Characterization and testing of the Floating Gate Dosimeter (FGDOS) was advanced with an emphasis on its utilization...

The ability of a fully polarimetric radar to discriminate between payloads carried by UAVs is demonstrated. A novel approach has been employed in the feature extraction algorithm, where features from individual and combined polarimetric channels are extracted for classification. Decision and ensemble fusions on the respective extracted features...

Over the past decade, the scanning landscape has significantly changed. Powerful tools such as Masscan or Zmap allow anyone to scan the entire Internet in a matter of hours. Simultaneously, we witnessed the emergence of stealthy scanners, which map the Internet from thousands of vantage points at a low rate attempting to forego detection. As...

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones have gained increasing popularity with current technological breakthroughs. Recent reports indicate the number of registered drones in the United States have crossed 850,000 and is expected to increase multi-fold over the coming years. The widespread applications of drones include...

For decades the space domain has been used for military purposes. When enemy forces establish counter-space capabilities, this could become a weakness. Responsive Space is a concept that focuses on replenishing lost capabilities and/or granting additional capabilities from space assets quickly. The continuous miniaturization of technologies has...

Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) can be used for aerial transportation in remote and urban spaces where portability can be exploited to reach previously inaccessible and inhospitable spaces. Current approaches for path planning of MAV swung payload system either compute conservative minimal-swing trajectories or pre-generate agile collision-free...

Prolonged periods of drought affect river discharges and cause water levels and available water depth to drop for extended periods of time. Low water depth has a major impact on the loading capacity of inland ships, and as a consequence on the transport capacity of the overall waterborne supply chain. Individual ship owners have detailed...

In this paper, a novel adaptive Takagi-Sugeno (TS) fuzzy observer-based controller is proposed. The closed-loop stability and the boundedness of all the signals are proven by Lyapunov stability analysis. The proposed controller is applied to a flexible-transmission experimental setup. The performance for constant payload in the presence of...

Florjancic, D. (author)
Relatively high wing loading leads to increase in fuel efficiency in commercial as well as in small general aviation aircraft, but requires sophisticated high lift devices to keep the take-off and landing distances within acceptable limits. High lift devices can in turn have a detrimental effect on cruise performance, and thus fuel efficiency,...

Robotics have developed at a very high rate in the last few years. Industries are becoming capable of automating repetitive procedures without pause, and the production speed and quality are improving everyday. The main drawback of robotics in industry is the inability to deal with slight changes in an environment or in certain object parameters...

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...

Within the studies on Advanced Man-Machine Interfaces and Crew Support (AMMI & CS), being part of the Crew Workstation Testbed activities at ESTEC, a Dutch consortium is preparing the implementation of the User Support Organisation (USO) concept in a ground-based mission simulation, planned for May 1994. The objective of the implementation study...

The present plans for space stations are evolutionary developments from Skylab, ASTP, Spacelab, and recently, MIR. Other forbears can be identified as well, and it is instructive to compare current designs with the drawings that appeared in magazines around 1950, when spaceflight first appeared feasible. The space station that is taken as the...
