Technical Report
The high number of objects in the LEO is a risk that collisions between sub-orbital or escape velocity objects with an orbiting object of satellites occur when two satellites collide while orbiting the earth. One of the approaches to avoid collisions is a robotic configuration of satellite constellations. Satellite constellations should not be conf...
Technical Report
Lunar hematite is formed by the oxidation of iron on the surface of the Moon by oxygen from the Earth's upper atmosphere. The Moon's surface is continuously affected by solar particles from the sun. However, Earth's magnetic tail blocks 99 % of the solar wind and provides windows of opportunity to transport oxygen from Earth's upper atmosphere to t...
Technical Report
The surface degradation of satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) is affected by Atomic Oxygen (AO) and varies depending on the spacecraft orbital parameters. Atomic oxygen initiates several chemical and physical reactions with materials and produces erosion and self-disintegration of the debris at high energy. This paper discusses Avancée-1 Mission,...
Technical Report
In recent years, understanding asteroids has shifted from light worlds to geological worlds by exploring modern spacecraft and advanced radar and telescopic surveys. However, flyby in 2029 will be an opportunity to conduct an internal geophysical study and test the current hypothesis on the effects of tidal forces on asteroids. The Earth-Apophis mi...
Technical Report
A celestial alignment between Neptune, Uranus, and Jupiter will occur in the early 2030s, allowing a slingshot around Jupiter to gain enough momentum to achieve planetary flyover capability around the two ice giants. The launch of the uranian probe for the departure windows of the NUIP Mission is between January 2030 and January 2035, and the durat...
Conference Paper
This paper introduced the space mission DikpolaSat Mission, how this research fits into the mission, and the importance of having a trained DNN model instead of the usual GN&C functionality. This paper shows how the controller demonstration is carried out by having the spacecraft follow a desired path, specified in the referenced model. Increases c...
