Spacecraft navigation and control is difficult in deep space operations. Especially around asteroids, the irregular gravity field increases the difficulty of estimating the spacecraft trajectory. Autonomous navigation can increase the safety and accuracy for orbit proximity operations. Furthermore, it eliminates the need for continuous...

On May 22, 2018, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow On (GRACE-FO) mission was launched with the goal to map the spatiotemporal variations in the Earth's gravity field and to extend the 15-year monthly mass change observations of its predecessor, the GRACE mission. Similarly to GRACE, the measurement principle of GRACE-FO is based...

For the complex multi-ship encounter scenarios, this article proposes a dynamic collision avoidance path planning algorithm based on the A-star algorithm and ship navigation rules, namely Dynamic Anti-collision A-star (DAA-star) algorithm. A dynamic search mechanism of the DAA-star algorithm considering time factors is designed to enable the...

Creating a gas-liquid foam means dispersing gas as individual bubbles in an aqueous solution, in which each gas bubble is separated by liquid films or lamella. The most common form of liquid foam (as opposed to solid foams, like polymer sponges) seen in day-to-day life is bulk foam. This refers to a foam that rests in a large container (or flows...

The advent of global warming has brought an increased interest in non-conventional sources of energy, one of which is nuclear energy. Threatening the almost year-round functioning of nuclear power plants are Flow-Induced Vibrations (FIV). One such mechanism, Vortex-Induced Vibration (VIV), holds importance in areas of cross flow in nuclear power...

This paper extends the Multi-Agent Pathfinding (MAPF) algorithm, A*+ID+OD, to be able to solve problems with matching. This extension still keeps the optimal and completeness properties of the original algorithm. Matching is added to the algorithm in both an exhaustive and heuristic manner. Exhaustive matching is further improved by adding a new...

For the Multi-Agent Pathfinding (MAPF) problem, a set of non-colliding paths must be found for multiple agents. In Multi-Agent Pathfinding with Matching (MAPFM), this problem is extended: agents and goals are added to a team and each agent has to navigate to a goal that belongs to the same team. In this paper, two extensions of the EPEA* MAPF...

A recurrent claim associated with the development of star architecture buildings along new urban waterfronts is that star architecture’s capacity to garner media exposure can support a port city’s efforts to communicate narratives that support the process of urban transformation. However, despite the centrality of the role of the media, little...

One of the most exciting scientific challenges is to detect Earth-like planets in the habitable zones of other stars in the galaxy and search for evidence of life. During the past 20 years the detection of exoplanets, orbiting stars beyond our own, has moved from science fiction to science fact. From the first handful of gas giants, found...

Gas phase Elemental abundances in Molecular CloudS (GEMS) is an IRAM 30 m Large Program designed to provide estimates of the S, C, N, and O depletions and gas ionization degree, X(e-), in a selected set of star-forming filaments of Taurus, Perseus, and Orion. Our immediate goal is to build up a complete and large database of molecular...

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...

In the field of cooperative multi-agent pathfinding (MAPF) the optimal set of non-conflicting paths must be found for a set of agents in a graph. The addition of waypoints to this problem (MAPFW) gives rise to the possibility of more complex applications, such as in vehicle routing, aviation, computer games or robotics. Yet no algorithms have...

The graph Merriman–Bence–Osher scheme produces, starting from an initial node subset, a sequence of node sets obtained by iteratively applying graph diffusion and thresholding to the characteristic (or indicator) function of the node subsets. One result in [14] gives sufficient conditions on the diffusion time to ensure that the set...

We present observations of the Trumpler 14/Carina I region carried out using the Stratospheric Terahertz Observatory 2. The Trumpler 14/Carina I region is in the western part of the Carina Nebula Complex (CNC), which is one of the most extreme star-forming regions in the Milky Way. We observed Trumpler 14/Carina I in the 158 μm transition of ...

METIS, the Mid-IR instrument for the ELT will be operating an internal Single Conjugate Adaptive Optics System (SCAO), which will be the work horse AO system and mainly serve the science cases targeting exoplanets and disks around bright stars. In order to extend the sky coverage and brightness range of targets requiring AO correction to...

Foam is a promising solution for improving the poor sweep efficiency of gas injection for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), in that foam lowers gas mobility significantly by trapping gas bubbles. Most of oils destabilize foam, the effect of which dominates foam strength when foam is in contact with oil and is key to success of foam EOR, but not yet...

The logistics industry is being modernized using information technology and robots. This change encompasses a new set of challenges in warehouses. Recently, some companies have started using robot fleets to sort products and parcels. This thesis studies those systems, and researches the combinatorial problems that arise within them. Three main...

This paper investigates the impact of vertical location and tenant sorting on commercial office rents within the tall office towers of Amsterdam. In economic geography and urban economics’ approach to productivity tall buildings constitute an important, density-increasing typology that fosters agglomeration. Through econometric modelling of...

A method for validating the calibration parameters of the six accelerometers on board the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) from star tracker observations that was originally tested by an end-to-end simulation, has been updated and applied to real data from GOCE. It is shown that the method provides estimates of...
