Using Internet nodes and routers onboard satellites
TLDR
An Internet router was integrated into the UK-DMC remote-sensing satellite as a secondary experimental payload, which took place using the Virtual Mission Operations Center (VMOC) application as part of a larger systems internetworking exercise. Expand
EVALUATION OF THE UTILITY OF THE DISASTER MONITORING CONSTELLATION IN SUPPORT OF EARTH OBSERVATION APPLICATIONS
TLDR
The Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) is an international micro-satellite constellation, currently capable of providing 32m spatial-resolution, tri-band, multi-spectral imagery over a 600km swath of any location in the world, within a 24-hour period. Expand
“You can get there from here”: Advanced low cost propulsion concepts for small satellites beyond LEO
Abstract Small satellites have historically been forced to use low cost propulsion, or to do without in order to maintain low cost. Since 1999 an increasing number of SSTL's customers have demandedExpand
AISAT-1 First Year in Orbit
TLDR
The role of satellites in medium and high-resolution reconnaissance of the Earth has been well demonstrated in recent years through missions such as Landsat, SPOT, IKONOS, EROS, ImageSat and Quickbird. Expand
Capacity building in emerging space nations: Experiences, challenges and benefits
Abstract This paper focuses on ways in which space is being used to build capacity in science and technology in order to: • Offer increasing support for national and global solutions to current andExpand
An ‘entry level’ mission to a near Earth object
TLDR
This paper outlines the platform architecture, cost and cost drivers, and describes the key technology trades to be performed and the developments required to extend current Low Earth Orbit (LEO) technology to a deep space mission. Expand
Advancing Small Satellite Earth Observation: Operational Spacecraft, Planned Missions and Future Concepts
The launch of Surrey’s UoSAT-12 in April 1999 heralded a new era in small-satellite Earth observation. The UoSAT-12 mission, Surrey’s first mini-satellite, supports a variety of payloads, including aExpand
Stand-alone spacecraft attitude determination using real flight GPS data from UOSAT-12
TLDR
This paper presents the results of an experimental attitude determination system employing GPS (Global Positioning System), using phase difference data logged in orbit on the UoSAT-12 minisatellite, which was launched in 1999. Expand
