Project reports

Cranfield University MSc Individual Research Project

The largest component of my Cranfield MSc was an Individual Research Project (IRP). After discussion with Dr Felicetti who’d supervised my GDP team, we chose a custom topic for the IRP, with me researching mission and GNC design for an on-orbit servicing spacecraft.

My thesis is now complete and I will publish it here as soon as the mark for it has been released at the end of October.

Cranfield University MSc Group Design Project

A large component of my MSc Astronautics and Space Engineering course at Cranfield University was a Group Design Project (GDP) working with 14 other students. I took on the role of lead systems engineer, with our team designing a constellation of satellites to track resident space objects (satellites and debris) to aid space traffic management and space situational awareness.

Papers

Cranfield GDP paper for IAC 2020

With the support of our supervisor, Dr Leonard Felicetti, my GDP team submitted a paper to the IAC 2020 “CyberSpace Edition”. This gives a summary of our constellation for space traffic management and describes how we achieve our objectives using an innovative optical payload design.

The paper is currently being written and will be published here along with the companion presentation once IAC 2020 has concluded in late October.

UKSEDS Student Space Symposium IRP paper

My abstract based on my Cranfield IRP has been accepted to UKSEDS’ 2020 Student Space Symposium. The paper will be a shortened version of my IRP thesis and will discuss a mission architecture and hardware design for on-orbit servicing.

I am currently writing the paper and will publish it here once the Symposium is complete in mid October. It will also be available on the UKSEDS website.

RAL Space CubeSat Camera – iCubeSat Conference 2018, Paris

As part of my BEng course, I undertook a year placement as an electronic engineering sandwich student at RAL Space. One of my projects while working there was the CubeSat Camera, CCAM, which I worked on as part of a small team. We delivered a presentation and presented a paper on our work at the iCubeSat Conference in Paris in 2018. You can find the paper and presentation below and a recording of us giving the presentation on the iCubeSat website.
