Nanosatellite

SKU: B020
Description:
Novel Ideas for Nanosatellite Constellation Missions, Published 2012, 164 pages. Hardcover. This collection of papers represents the culmination of unprecedented efforts by over one hundred researchers in dozens of countries in the first Mission Idea Contest for Nano-satellite Constellations (MIC). The primary objective of the MIC was to encourage innovative exploitation of nano-satellites working in constellations to provide useful and sustainable capabilities, services or data. Regional Coordinators from 19 regions worked to facilitate and promote the contest and supported international applicants to garner 62 applicants from 24 countries, representing different ideas from humanitarian relief, to science and technology, to commercial applications. From this pool of 62 applicants, the review team selected 10 finalists and 5 semi-finalists who were invited to Tokyo to present at the 2nd Nano-satellite Symposium in March 2011. This book presents 14 of the best proposals from among all of those submitted. R. Sandau, S. Nakasuka, R. Kawashima, J. Sellers (Editors). €80.00 shipping included.

New Mission Concepts

SKU: B030
Description:
Small Satellite Missions for Earth Observation - New Mission Concepts and Technological Challenges, Published 2013, 221 pages, hardcover. This book was compiled from contributions given at the 8th International IAA Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation, April 4-8, 2011, Berlin, Germany (IAA – International Academy of Astronautics). From the 15 sessions for oral presentations and two poster sessions, 26 contributions were selected representing new mission concepts and technological challenges. The contributions in part I; New Mission Concepts, reflect the potentials of a diversity of new Earth observation missions. The scope goes from for instance Japanese nano satellites covering education and practical use to NASA’s Earth science missions using small satellites, and single satellite applications to constellations and formations. Part II, Technological Challenges, covers a broad range of new technologies and techniques allowing to pursue new for small satellites application areas. Technologies include diverse position and attitude control systems for micro and nano satellites like for instance GNSS receivers, star trackers, reaction wheels and micro thrusters, as well as deorbiting systems New techniques enabling new application areas for small satellites include a reconfigurable large telescope based on nano satellite components, and affordable SAR (synthetic aperture radar) systems. €80.00 shipping included.

Micro/Nano-Satellite

SKU: B042
Description:
Innovative Ideas for Micro/Nano-Satellite Missions, Published 2013, 201 pages. Hardcover. This volume presents a collection of papers representing the results from the second Mission Idea Contest for Micro/Nano Satellite Utilization (MIC2). MIC2 had two primary objectives: 1) to encourage innovative exploitation of nano-satellites to provide useful and sustainable capabilities, services or data, and 2) promote capacity building in the field of space science and technology. Regional Coordinators from 33 regions worked to facilitate and promote the contest and supported international applicants to garner 72 applicants from 31 countries. 10 finalists and 9 semi-finalists were selected to present at the UN/Japan Nano-satellite Symposium in Nagoya, Japan on October 10th, 2012. This book presents 18 of the best proposals from among all of those submitted. €80.00 shipping included.

Missions & Technologies

SKU: B022
Description:
Small Satellites for Earth Observation - Missions & Technologies, Operational Responsive Space, Commercial Constellations, Published 2014, 374 pages. Hardcover. This book reflects the latest developments in the field of development and application of small satellites for Earth observation. It consists of three parts. Part I, Missions & Technologies, was compiled from contributions given at the 9th International IAA Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation, April 8-12, 2013, Berlin, Germany (IAA – International Academy of Astronautics). From the 15 sessions for oral presentations and two poster sessions, 39 contributions were selected representing new mission concepts and technological challenges. They reflect the potentials of a diversity of new Earth observation missions. The scope goes from NASA’s Earth science missions using small satellites to constellations and formations as well as single satellites developed for and in countries emerging in space. Furthermore, part I covers also a broad range of new technologies and techniques allowing to pursue new application areas for small satellites. Technologies include diverse position and attitude control systems for micro and nano satellites like for instance star trackers, reaction wheels and micro thrusters, as well as deorbiting systems. New techniques enabling new application areas for small satellites include afford able SAR (synthetic aperture radar) systems. Part II, Operational Responsive Space (ORS), introducing the new concept and its components, was specifically written for this book. It incorporates the content of the relevant for ORS papers presented at the 9th IAA Symposium. Part III, Commercial Constellations, also specifically written for this book, shows that the commercialization of small satellite constellations including their data is already under way since the beginning of the new millennium. In our view, commercialization is the final proof that Earth observation/monitoring is serving the real needs of the peoples on Earth, justifying the immense efforts to establish the necessary infrastructure. €80.00 shipping included.
