The need for NL-RIA’s cubesat altimeter constellation

Author: Yuanhao Li. Nowadays spaceborne data from several altimeters (e.g., from Jason-1/2, Cryosat, etc.) can already resolve oceanographic phenomena with sizes in the order of 100 km. However, we cannot observe very well the submeso-scale oceanic features which may derive from smaller-scale eddies and currents. In this view, the observation …

NL-RIA Antenna Concepts

Alden Yellowhorse of the Mechatronic Systems Design department at TU Delft is tasked with the research on future foldable antenna systems for micro satellites. Discussion topics in coming project meetings will include antenna designs suitable for small satellites. This includes antenna performance requirements and analyses of multiple designs under consideration. …
