PragSAT 2014

Students participated in the European contest called ESA CanSat Competition. Teams of high schools students are to develop and manufacture minisatellites, called CanSats, with dimensions of a soft drink can with a volume of 330 ml. The final round of the contest is held annually at Andøya Rocket Range in Norway.

DSSS

The digital slit sun sensor (DSSS) measures the position of the Sun with respect to its axes. It overcomes the disadvantages of the sun sensors used in the past, e.g. on Magion satellites, that were analogue cosine law sensors.This sensor mainly consists from COTS and industrial components and is therefore relatively cheap.

Gamma-ray calibration facility

Cosmic ray consists of many types of radiations and particles, the example is gamma-ray, which consists of energetic photons. The task of this project was to develop ESA’s reference station, on which would be possible to measure and calibrate the equipment prepared for spacecraft used for gamma-ray detection.

MOFINT

The objective of the project was to develop and experimentally validate propagation models and relevant input data for the statistical prediction of radio interference on ground terminals of satellite systems including the implementation of the models into a software tool.

ANED-M

The project was focused on statistical fitting of model parameters to measurements, identification of worst case scenario and geometry optimisation and its goal was to propose a methodology for optimisation of nozzle extension geometry so as to minimise its weight and maximise its reliability with respect to the prescribed uncertain loading.

IRIS / ANTARES

Iris is a multi-year program funded by the European Space Agency (ESA - ARTES 10). The objective of the Iris program is to design and develop new satellite communication systems for safety critical air/ground data and voice communication, enabling the future ATM (Air Traffic Management) concepts being defined by SESAR and NextGen.

ESPRIT

The aim of the ESPRIT project was to propose a preliminary satellite system design for UAS C2 (Command & Control) link and to develop a business case analysis from the UAS C2 service provider perspective, and an analysis of the operational concept of the satellite system.
