Mixed ices of carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) and water (H<sub>2</sub>O), prevalent in cometary nuclei, solar system satellites, and interstellar dust particles, have posed a persistent challenge in understanding the fundamental behaviors of carbon dioxide in these icy environments. Specifically, the intriguing shift in the CO<sub>2</sub>...

Imagery collected from space provides very useful information about our planet. Today there are many Earth Observation satellites in orbit which allow us to collect information which is used for environmental monitoring, response to catastrophes, surveillance and security, urban planning, economic analysis and many other applications. Thus,...

Hobijn, Christiaan (author)
The miniaturization of satellites throughout the decades is mostly contributed by the advancement in electronics and technology. Volume and mass of a satellite are factors of the launch costs. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) program<br/>aims to reduce the stowed volume of the telescope and subsequently reduce the costs.<br/>Telescopes have...

Laser satellite communication offers new opportunities in global data transfer, and can provide crucial infrastructure to facilitate the ever-growing demand. Creating an optical link of 10.000 km in length requires a telescope with extreme thermal stability, in an environment where thermal loading is periodical as a result of the satellite’s...

There is an ever-increasing demand for high data transfer rates. Laser satellite communication is a promising technology which offers high data rates and more secure links than the mature radio frequency (RF) communication. To make a laser communication terminal market viable it must be low size, weight and power (SWaP). The telescope drives the...

Further development of the Delft Deployable Space Telescope (DST) was needed to solve for defocus due to thermal expansion. This thesis focuses on implementation of stray light design methodology on the deployable baffle to provide a more stable temperature environment. This methodology utilises various baffle shapes and the arrangement of vanes...

The Atmoscope is the idea to use the atmosphere of a planet as a telescopic lens. It uses the refractive properties of an atmosphere to converge light rays to a focal line. It has been hypothesized that using Earth’s atmosphere could, under favorable circumstances, yield an amplification of 55; 000 for a detector that has a surface area of 1m2....

Hutan, Andrei (author)
Traditional spacecraft design has reached the limits of size and volume that current launchers allow. This is especially true for space telescopes (James Webb), where size is directly correlated with performance. A solution to this is on-orbit assembly, however some enabling technologies are insufficiently developed. One of the most important...

Gal/Xgal U/LDB Spectroscopic/ Stratospheric THz Observatory (GUSTO) is a NASA Explorers Mission of Opportunity that will make large scale maps of the Milky Way and Large Magellanic Cloud in three important interstellar lines: [CII], [OI], and [NII] at 158, 63, and 205 μm, respectively. During its ~75 day stratospheric (~36 km) flight, GUSTO’s 0...

An array of BlackGEM telescopes is currently being constructed in Chile. The Royal Netherlands Air Force wants to assess the suitability of the BlackGEM telescopes for initial orbit determination of unknown objects in high orbits around Earth. A set of short arc observations of geostationary satellites of no more than 5 minutes is available from...

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...

We present a software package for single-dish data processing of spacecraft signals observed with VLBI-equipped radio telescopes. The Spacecraft Doppler tracking (SDtracker) software allows one to obtain topocentric frequency detections with a sub-Hz precision and reconstructed and residual phases of the carrier signal of any spacecraft or...

The Dark Ages and Cosmic Dawn are largely unexplored windows on the infant Universe (z ~ 200–10). Observations of the redshifted 21-cm line of neutral hydrogen can provide valuable new insight into fundamental physics and astrophysics during these eras that no other probe can provide, and drives the design of many future ground-based...

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...

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 ...

This thesis aims to improve our understanding of the role of ices in planet forming discs, known as protoplanetary discs. Computer models of such discs have been used extensively by the community to understand and predict the observational data. It has always been a challenge to observe ices in the discs and their optical appearance is largely...

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...

We present a conceptual study of a large format imaging spectrograph for next-generation large (50-m class) single-dish telescopes, i.e., the Large Submillimeter Telescope (LST) and Atacama Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (AtLAST). Recent discoveries of high-redshift star-forming galaxies at z=8-9 and candidate quiescent galaxies at z~6...

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 Space Telescope (DST) project aims at producing a competitive telescope by using segmented deployable light weighted optics which reduces launch volume and mass, and thus launch costs. Due to the criticality of heat management to the performance of the telescope, a thermal model had to be built in order to determine the expected...
