A Thesis Defense Session for MSc/Saba Amjadian

2023-10-14T09:29:37+00:00

Designing the Trajectory of the Exploratory Mission to the Moon In a groundbreaking research project led by Saba Amjadian under the supervision of Dr. Mehran Mirshams and the guidance of Dr. Mehdi Jafari Nadooshan, the trajectory of an exploratory mission to the moon has been meticulously designed. This research seeks to address the overlooked aspects of the moon's formation mechanism and its potential as a testing ground for new technologies in planetary exploration. The study reviews past information and discoveries to shed light on the significant facts about the moon and its formation mechanism that have been ignored. Furthermore, the [...]

Title: Feasibility of using supercapacitor in the design of cubesat electric power subsystem By Katayoon KankiaSupervisor: Dr. Mehran MirshamsChairmen: Dr. Ehsan Zabihian Dr. Mahdi Jafari Nadoushan (K. N. Toosi University of Technology)September 20, 2023 Nowadays, given the appropriate performance of small satellites, there is a need to increase the storage capacity of electric power in the design and construction of these satellites by our beloved country, Iran, as payloads become more complex. This research focuses on designing and implementing a subsystem for electric power for a 1U CubeSat using supercapacitors in the energy storage section. To do so, first, statistical [...]

Defense Meeting Held for Autonomous Optical Navigation of Interplanetary CubeSats

2023-10-04T05:01:48+00:00

On September 12, 2023, Shahram Keshavarzi successfully defended his thesis on "Autonomous Optical Navigation of Interplanetary CubeSats" at K. N. Toosi University of Technology. The thesis, supervised by Dr. Mehran Mirshams and advised by Dr. Alireza Hoseini Arani, presents a general approach for optical tracking and navigation of spacecraft without access to ground-based distance measuring sources. The thesis argues that the recent expansion of CubeSat satellites challenges the traditional paradigm of mission planning for space exploration, which relies on determining the Earth orbit to guide the spacecraft towards the mission objective. With the increase in the total number of spacecraft [...]

Niki explores the world to look for space sustainability

2023-06-17T10:07:16+00:00

Niki recently had the opportunity to participate in three notable space events, which resulted in meaningful outcomes. Her journey began at the Space Resources Week and Summer Space Festival in Luxembourg, where she actively engaged in various activities. Notably, Niki attended the Space Sustainability workshop during the festival, where she gained valuable insights into the challenges and solutions related to long-term sustainability in space exploration. This experience fostered her understanding of responsible practices and further ignited her passion for promoting a sustainable future in space. Continuing her journey, Niki traveled to Oslo to attend the Global Space Conference on Climate [...]

The power of Hands-on Training

2023-06-07T10:58:50+00:00

Peruvian specialist continues working with CubeSat Hands-on Training Package (CHTP). George Steve Fajardo Soria and his friends participated at hands-on training work-shop which has been organized by APSCO at Shanghai University of Technology in 2019 China, before the Covid perturbation!!!!! In the work-shop by interactive activities, participants got involved with ADCS making and test. they made a Cubesat model with one axis control and tested it on an airbearing stand. Now they use their knowledge and abilities to develop their on CubeSat on the bases of that model. we are very happy with the results of this kind of educational [...]
