The Effects of Noise through an Analog Integrator Which Integrates with Respect to an Arbitrary Variable

Philip R. Westlake IRE Transactions on Aerospace and Navigational Electronics, 1962

A long-range investigation into the transmission, utilization, and processing of information for missiles and space vehicles has been initiated. The ultimate objective is a theory of control and communication for such vehicles which would relate the principles of information theory to the design philosophy of the control and communication systems. In investigating such information-theoretic guidance control problems, it is necessary ...


Mars Pathfinder flight system integration and test

B. K. Muirhead 1997 IEEE Aerospace Conference, 1997

This paper describes the system integration and test experiences, problems and lessons learned during the assembly, test and launch operations (ATLO) phase of the Mars Pathfinder flight system scheduled to land on the surface of Mars on July 4, 1997. The Mars Pathfinder spacecraft consists of three spacecraft systems: cruise stage, entry vehicle and lander. The cruise stage carries the ...

Astronautic PBGA (plastic ball grid array) solder joints' reliability: under successive-high acceleration shock condition

Qiang Guo; Mei Zhao; Zhen-jun Zhu; Xiao-chang Zhang Proceedings of 2004 International Conference on the Business of Electronic Product Reliability and Liability (IEEE Cat. No.04EX809), 2004

Along with development of the astronautic industry, more and more SMT solder joints have been used in missiles, rockets and other important equipment where the environment of astronautic equipment is more serious and complex than that in normal conditions. In this paper, reliability of a kind of astronautic PBGA256 assembly sample is considered under successive-high acceleration shock conditions. During the ...


New European concept of single staged rocket to launch nano-satellites in low earth orbit (LEO)

O. Bozic; J. M. Longo; P. Giese Recent Advances in Space Technologies, 2003. RAST '03. International Conference on. Proceedings of, 2003

The possibility to launch small payloads into LEO by means of an electromagnetic railgun is the motivation of the present study. Here it is assumed that an electromagnetic railgun with barrel length of 180 m is able to launch a 120 mm diameter projectile at a speed of 6 km/s. In order to the payload achieves orbital motion and to ...

  • Project History

    This technological fantasy, the product of the MIT Students System Project and the inspiration for the 1979 film "Meteor," presents a plan for avoiding a hypothetical collision between Earth and the Apollo asteroid, Icarus, which sweeps by every nineteen years within a few million miles (a near-miss in astronomical terms). Collision with a four billion-ton rock would create a catastrophe equal to the destructive power of half a trillion tons of TNT.To prevent tidal waves from washing away the coasts of North America and Europe and shock waves from fracturing the earth's substructure, the Project Icarus plan calls for six 100-megaton hydrogen bombs to be ready for liftoff in sequence from the Kennedy Space Center by six Saturn V rockets in an attempt to push the asteroid off course or to smash it into harmless debris. Clearly, money is no object; all the financial resources of the country are assumed available to the crack Project Icarus team. But time and accuracy are essential.The description of the frantic project schedule from go-ahead to impact includes selection and modification of the launch vehicle and spacecraft; "design" of the nuclear warhead and prediction of its interaction with the asteroid in space; guidance and control of the spacecraft on its critical intercept trajectory; development of an intercept monitoring satellite to gather scientific data from the asteroid and the explosion; the tight management and rigid PERT schedule; and the economic impact of the project.How close to Earth will Icarus's eccentric orbit carry it next time? What are the chances of some other, as yet undiscovered, asteroid -- or worse, a random meteor -- making its way straight for Earth? The MIT team's plan may yet be put to the test.

  • Multi-Stage Micro Rockets for Robotic Insects

    One of the main challenges for sustained flight of current aerial micro robots is the low energy density available from common power sources. In this paper we propose solid rocket fuel powered micro thrusters as a high energy density actuation method for aerial micro robots. In a multi stage configuration these thrusters can be used for intermittent flight which can decrease the energetic cost of locomotion. In particular we focus on the fabrication method and characterization of multistage micro thrusters with a diameter of 3mm and 6.4mm. We demonstrate a sustained and repeatable thrust force of up to 35mN for a duration of up to 42s and a multi-stage designs with a time delay of up to 4.7s between the propulsion phases. Furthermore, we present a take-off trajectory of a 10cm rocket glider with an integrated micro thruster as propulsion mechanism showing that the technologies developed can be used to successfully power micro robots in flight. Future work will focus on control and flight dynamics of micro thruster powered gliders. Wider applications of similar thrusters can include other robotic applications where low weight and high force is important such as for jumping or running robots.1
