  • The secondary electron facility at China Academy of Space Technology (Xi'an)

    The secondary electron emission characteristics of the space metal material are the important parameters to determine the surface charge rate and charge balance potential of the spacecraft. And it is also an important basis for material selection, analysis and design of high power microwave components of space vehicle. In order to accurately measure the secondary electron emission characteristics of space metal materials, the Academy of Space Technology has been developing a secondary electron facility with good performance and mature technology. The multi-functional test-stand is designed and constructed to evaluate characteristics of secondary electron emission of metals in ultrahigh vacuum, such as its emission yield, its energy spectrum and XPS. At present, this facility allows working in a large energy range (between 20eV up to 30KeV), a large temperature range (down to 0°C and up to 400°C), a variety of radiation sources (electrons, photons and ions), and at high vacuum level (10-8Pa). This paper mainly introduces the measurement principles and structures of the secondary electron emission characteristics of the platform, and presents a series of typical test results on the basis of the principles and functions of the test.

  • Significance of dielectrics in space technology

    The main objective of this paper is to provide a brief and necessary background of dielectrics in the field of space technology. The mobile telephone, TV, Radio, Satellite or any type of modern communication is not possible without one type of antenna or the other and no radar works without an antenna. Antenna is a sensor of electromagnetic waves. Electric and magnetic fields exist in a dielectric material and also penetrate the dielectric material freely. When an electromagnetic wave is incident normally on the surface of a dielectric, reflection and transmission takes place. In this investigation, dielectric polarization studies were made in the liquid dielectric mixtures Epichlorohydrin, p-cresol in benzene using standard methods at 308K.The values of dielectric constant, refractive index and density were measured at different concentrations. The dipolar increment value has been calculated using Huyskens method based on Onsager's theory.

  • Institute of Space Technology CubeSat: ICUBE-1 subsystem analysis and design

    For a long while, launching satellites for the purpose of research and technology demonstration largely remained with national space agencies and government organizations as the huge funding requirements inhibited the initiation of such projects at university level. It was this idea of providing, at university level, cheap access to space that prompted the design of miniaturized versions of satellites for research purposes. Specifications of CubeSat, a pico-satellite, were defined to provide easy access to space for educational and research institutions. The improvement in engineering technologies and miniaturization of physical components has enabled design, development and launch of such small low-cost spacecrafts and to date, more than 60 universities, institutions and research organizations have taken part in CubeSat program since its inception in 1999. Institute of Space Technology (IST) adopted the concept of CubeSat development by initiating the satellite program, ICUBE. ICUBE is the premier student satellite program of any educational institution/university in Pakistan. The first satellite of this program is named ICUBE-1. Successful launch of ICUBE-1 and establishing its communication link with the ground are the primary goals of this mission. The satellite has a passive attitude control system and will carry a CMOS camera for experimental purposes. In this paper, we will discuss in detail the design philosophy of ICUBE-1, followed by the preliminary design and analysis of all its subsystems. The required testing and technical support facilities are discussed before the final conclusions.
