Dynamically Balanced Pointing System for CubeSats: Study and 3D Printing Manufacturing

The results underline the correct dimensioning of the PS and the fundamental importance of DBS in maintaining the satellite attitude and confirm the capabilities of AM in the production of complex mechanical systems, allowing high precision, combined with interesting mechanical properties and low weight.



Design for Demise: Systems-level techniques to reduce re-entry casualty risk

“Design for Demise” are solutions at different design levels to meeting the space debris mitigation requirement to minimise the risk to human population following uncontrolled re-entry of spacecraft.

MakerSat: A CubeSat Designed for In-Space Assembly

The MakerSat mission is described, the first CubeSat specifically designed to be additively manufactured, and the “stash and deploy” technique proposed by NanoRacks and Made In Space is described.

New Concepts of Deployable De-Orbit and Re-Entry Systems for CubeSat Miniaturized Satellites

In the present work new concepts of de-orbit and re-entry modules for standard CubeSats are presented. On the one hand, these modules can be very useful to contrast the growing phenomenon of the

ReDSHIFT: A Global Approach to Space Debris Mitigation

The H2020 ReDSHIFT project aims at finding passive means to mitigate the proliferation of space debris. This goal is pursued by a twofold research activity based on theoretical astrodynamics,

Advanced Space Flight Mechanical Qualification Test of a 3D- Printed Satellite Structure Produced in Polyetherimide ULTEMTM

The aim of this work is to demonstrate the use of additive manufacturing with thermoplastic material in the whole functional structure of spacecraft and to mechanically qualify it for space flight.

Design Optimization of Pico-satellite Frame for Computational Analysis and Simulation

In this research work, a structural optimization methodology is applied to generate a Frame model that meets CubeSat Design Standards. The frame is further subjected to software simulation that
