Small Spacecraft Development Project-Based Learning: by Jeremy Straub, Ronald Arthur Marsh, David J. Whalen

By Jeremy Straub, Ronald Arthur Marsh, David J. Whalen

This e-book offers the data that's required to begin a small spacecraft application for academic reasons. it will comprise a dialogue of a number of techniques to software formation and construct / purchase / hybrid choice issues. The e-book additionally discusses how a CubeSat (or different small spacecraft software) may be built-in into direction and/or software curriculum and the ancillary merits that the sort of application provides. The overview of small spacecraft courses and participatory project-based studying courses can be mentioned largely. The publication provides previous paintings on the topic of application evaluate (both for a unmarried software and the world over) and discusses how related ideas can be used for either formative and summative review of a brand new application. The software of those metrics (and prior evaluation of alternative courses) in gaining buy-in for application formation and investment can be considered.

While this expanded the scope of interdisciplinary collaboration slightly, it still did not fully encompass all discipline types that would be required to be involved in a real-world mission of this type. Another small satellite PBL example is provided by Rodriguez-Osorio and Ramirez [75] who presented work at the ETSI de Telecomunicación in Madrid, Spain, related to an extracurricular NanoSat project. This 21-month project was student conceived and implemented (under faculty supervision). An antenna array designed for the purpose of inter-spacecraft communication (for a CubeSat-size craft) was created and its performance characterized.
