In this report, we will focus on simulating galaxy observations with the Deep Spectroscopic High-redshift Mapper (DESHIMA). To do so, we will discuss and evaluate two main parts needed to accurately perform such a simulation:<br/><br/>Firstly, we will answer the question whether Time-dependent End-to-end Model for Post-process Optimization ...

Flat plate heat exchangers are widely used in industrial and domestic applications. Industrial plate type heat exchangers generally operate in the turbulent flow regime. Although, increase in flow speeds leads to higher transport of heat, it also causes a rise in the pressure loss which is undesirable. Therefore, to combat the problem of high...

The JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) mission by ESA aims to explore the emergence of habitable worlds around gas giants and the Jupiter system as an archetype for gas giants. MAJIS (Moons and Jupiter Imaging Spectrometer) is the visible to near-infrared imaging spectrometer onboard JUICE which will characterize the surfaces and exospheres of...

Recognising the threat of near-Earth objects (NEOs), many ground-based surveys have been deployed worldwide. However, ~20% of these potential impactors are estimated to be approaching us from the day-side, and are thus very difficult to detect using ground surveys. Over the last decade, several space-based capabilities have emerged in an effort...

People counting data in offices is used in many applications like HVAC system control and space management to increase comfort, decrease energy consumption and optimise space utilisation. In contrast to past approaches using imaging modalities that tend to be either expensive or intrusive, we consider single-pixel thermopile sensors for people...

There has been a lot of research on Saturn’s moon Enceladus because of the plumes of water vapour emanating from this icy moon’s south pole. However, not much is known about the characteristics of the rest of the moon. This Thesis uses infrared spectral data gathered by Cassini’s VIMS instrument to search for traces of materials other than water...

Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs) are extremely sensitive radiation detectors based on superconducting resonators that can be combined in large arrays on a single readout line within a limited frequency bandwidth. This makes MKIDs ideal detectors for the ultimate far-infrared observatory: a future space-based actively cooled...

Methodology <br/>Agriculture is an important sector to provide in our needs. Since 2000, the arable land per farmer increased with 66%. To help farmers managing their increasing amount of arable land, it is important to develop new techniques in example based on remote sensing data. One of the key parameters for agricultural management is the...

This report showcases the development of a product to aid the venipuncture procedure. Venipuncture is a procedure where intravenous access is obtained for several purposes. Finding a location and vein to insert the needle is the most important step of this procedure. Nearly 90% of hospitalised patients have to undergo the procedure. Despite...

An exponential growth in CO2 concentration over the past few decades has led to an accelerated impact of climate change on planet earth. In a bid to curb these emissions, people across the globe are slowly transitioning towards renewable energy sources with battery technology aiding this growth. Given that battery technology is still in its...

Clear ice formation on aircraft is a large economic and safety problem. The phenomenon, also known as ‘freezing rain’, usually occurs when subcooled rain droplets impact the aircraft while it descends from high altitude to prepare for landing. It can quickly increase the aerodynamic drag by up to 80% and reduce the lift force by 50%. Inefficient...

The worlds energy demand is increasing however, the majority of the energy supply is still based on fossil fuels. The consumption of fossil fuels results in the emission of carbon dioxide which is one of the main greenhouse gases responsible for the ongoing climate change. In order to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions, more and more energy is...

One of the major challenges that engineers face when designing a high speed vehicle is aerodynamics heating. While ideally the external surfaces are expected to maintain a smooth profile, this is not the case in most vehicles, which might be laden with discontinuities like steps, gaps, and other protrusions. These could alter the local flow...

Heart rate is a key factor in cardiovascular system monitoring and sports science. Some recent commercial applications use sensors in the ear but are faced with motion artifacts which corrupts the signal. In this report, a comprehensive review of heart rate detection methodologies was completed in order to find possible solutions with better...

The influence of laminar-turbulent transition on a propeller blade’s performance has been investigated in this study, both numerically and experimentally. The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is performed using the TAU code developed by the German Aerospace Center, as well as an existing propeller lifting-line code. The laminar-turbulent...

Over the years, estimation of precipitation from geostationary satellite imagery has proved to be a useful addition to weather radar and rain gauge networks. Despite the fact that precipitation estimates from geostationary satellites are inherently indirect, a single satellite is able to monitor an area much larger than any weather radar network...

Easy access to the current status of a surgery in the operating room (OR) can be beneficial to hospitals since it can improve the working efficiency and reduce the operational costs. Using indoor positioning systems (IPS) to obtain the position information of medical staffs in the OR could be an indirect method to enhance the awareness of the...

This research evaluates the potential of thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing to determine and continuously monitor the horizontal water temperature distribution of inland surface water bodies. Usually, monitoring temporal and spatial variability of surface water temperature takes place by measurement networks of in-situ gauges, but these...
