A New Network Design for the “Internet from Space”

Aerospace & Defense Technology: February 2020

  • Magazine Article
  • 20AERP02_06
Published 2020-02-01 by SAE International in United States

Satellites do not yet play a major role in the world's Internet infrastructure; however, this may soon change. Within the next decade, a new generation of satellites could lay the foundations for an “Internet from space,” according to Ankit Singla, a professor at ETH Zurich's Network Design & Architecture Lab. His team is investigating how to improve the performance of large-scale computer networks including the Internet.

Implementing an Aerospace Factory OF THE FUTURE

Aerospace & Defense Technology: February 2020

  • Magazine Article
  • 20AERP02_04
Published 2020-02-01 by SAE International in United States

Companies across a wide range of segments are introducing Industry 4.0 (i4.0) technology at a rapid pace, turning the next-generation vision of manufacturing - the Factory of the Future - into reality. Many of the advances in this transformation have been in highly automated industries such as vehicle manufacturing. Conversely, the aerospace industry, with its staged approach to assembling aircraft, satellites and other products, has only begun to investigate how i4.0 technologies can improve operations, throughput, quality control and cost challenges.

Insect-Inspired Motion Sensing

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35993
Published 2020-02-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Researchers have taken inspiration from flying insects to demonstrate a miniaturized gyroscope, a special sensor used in navigation technologies. Gyroscopes sense rotational motions to provide directional guidance without relying on satellites, so they are immune to signal jamming and other cyber threats, making them ideal for aircraft and submarines.

RAD-HARD Microelectronics for Space Applications

Aerospace & Defense Technology: February 2020

  • Magazine Article
  • 20AERP02_01
Published 2020-02-01 by SAE International in United States

For orbiting satellites, design requirements are extensive as a result of the extreme environment in space, including wide-ranging and rapidly changing temperatures, satellite body charging effects and high-energy particle bombardment and radiation. These dynamics drive the need for high-reliability engineering concepts for all system components. In the case of microelectronics, this takes a unique form and drives innovation for techniques to overcome these damaging effects.

NASA Eyes GPS at the Moon for Artemis Missions

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35111
Published 2019-09-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The Global Positioning System (GPS), a satellite-based navigation system used by an estimated four billion people worldwide to figure out where they are on Earth at any moment, could be used to pilot in and around lunar orbit during future Artemis missions to the Moon.

Multi- and Wide-Band Single-Feed Patch Antenna

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35130
Published 2019-09-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A novel patch antenna technology was developed that provides significant benefits to NASA satellite communication applications, offering a unique wide-band/multi-band operating capability. For other non-space applications, the antenna design also offers broadband capability with high gain for applications where signal strength and smaller antenna sizes are important. The technology was developed to design antennas for satellites where the target communication frequency is unknown or unassigned.

A New Approach to Satellite Communications

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34127
Published 2019-04-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

In the Heinrich Hertz satellite mission, which will be launched in 2020, the DLR Space Administration (German Aerospace Center) plans to develop and operate a German communications satellite. The chief objective of the mission is the scientific validation and testing of payload technologies in space.

  • Magazine Article
  • 18AERP09_01
Published 2018-09-01 by SAE International in United States

Satellites launched with the purpose of relaying communications have been enabling around-the-globe transmissions of information for half a century. And in this current era of hybrid warfare, that means this decades-old hardware needs to be able to manage the command and control of unmanned aircraft.
