Transcript

  • 1. 25 Years of COOL SPACE Projects
  • 2. Automatic Geophysical Observatory
  • 3. 256 kB Hard Drive
  • 4. First Computers inAntarctica Includedthese two - Apple 2e
  • 5. ATS-3 Antennas onroof of Main Domeat South Pole
  • 6. First Phone Call via Satellite fromSouth Pole – Dec 15, 1984
  • 7. First Email from South Pole - Dec 15, 1984
  • 8. This message comes to you from Goddard Space Flight Center, via the First SouthPole Satellite Data Relay Link – ATS-3 to South Pole - Nimbus 7/Landsat 4&5 toMcMurdo - Intelsat to Washington, DC. ( The only polar-orbiting Space Shuttle)
  • 9. First Long Duration Balloon Flight from AntarcticaGRAD – Jan 11, 1988
  • 10. Gamma Ray Detector – GRAD - on Ross Ice Shelf
  • 11. Ultra LDB launched 9 Jan 2011
  • 12. NASA Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS)
  • 13. TDRS Proof of Concept: 300Mbps from Black Island – Jan 1992 (Darwin Smith, lead)
  • 14. Portcom: 1Watt & 3” antenna
  • 15. Empty USAF radome moved 600 feeton Crater Hill, to see TDRS sats, Jan 2001
  • 16. Satellites for Weather and Communications – circa 1990’s
  • 17. Imaging Ozone by Satellite for NSF Balloon Science
  • 18. Conversion to LaunchSupports in January, 1994
  • 19. VIP Trip to Thule, Greenland on NASA Administrator’s Private Jet - 1993
  • 20. Ozone Imaging at Thule Air Base, Greenland - 1994
  • 21. Resurrect a Tumbling SatelliteProblem: How to command a Tumbling satellite when its internal power sources are deadBackground: Commanding from Around the earth was ineffective for almost three years. The satellite condition was unknown. Perhaps the thermal expansions have released the short but with tumbling the arrays are not lit by Sun long enough to power up the Spacecraftwas shorted out due to a thermal expansionSolution: Send commands from Antarctica while Spacecraft is illuminated by Albedo
  • 22. International Monitoring Platform, 1973 - 2008
  • 23. Eight 30-ft Yagi Antennas on 60-ft tower in McMurdo, 1995 - 1997
  • 24. Mike Staal:First MoonBounceCommunicationFrom AntarcticaJan 1995
  • 25. New Geosync Satellite Links to South Pole in 1994: GOES-3 & InMarSat-F1
  • 26. South Pole Internet Enables Real time coverage of Comet Impacting Jupiter in mid-1994
  • 27. ARCTIC
  • 28. North Pole 1999
  • 29. Portcom-Downloading at 40 mph
  • 30. Solar Array
  • 31. Indian Valley Middle School
  • 32. Ice Drill at Refueling Stop
  • 33. Dog Sledding Around the World
  • 34. First actual Classroom Lesson@ 90Nwas conducted by NASA in April 2001
  • 35. NASA at the North PoleProblem: How to make ground truth measurements of Sea Ice near 90NBackground:• Correlate surface properties Satellites can measure to sea ice mass• Sea Ice near 90N is not accessible by normal means• Takes too long to do field work with a normal teamSolution:• Use a team of college students and professors• Have experts layout the procedures and provide critical equipment• Adapt to existing Russian Commercial Services• Native Americans provide Chartered logistics consistent with their grant
  • 36. NASA Robotics for College Engineering Students
  • 37. Robotic Arm in Antarctica, Remotely Controlled from Michigan
  • 38. GREAT Project 2008Antarctica & Alaska
  • 39. Store-and-Forward Networking Relay stores data while not in view of Earth Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) is an effort to develop and standardize a message- based, store-and-forward system with reliability, security, and quality of service. Relay transmits data when in view of Earth Relay Range
  • 40. North to Alaska – Pt Barrow
  • 41. First Pole – Pole Phone Call & Internet
  • 42. 1993: This $750k system led us to develop a PC-based Weather Imaging system
  • 43. NASA GMS Weather Imaging Systemset up in Chiang Mi, Thailand - 1993
  • 44. Students Processing Satellite DataProblem:How to enable students to process satellite weather image data in realtimeBackground:• NOAA intends for users to have access to realtime weather data• Cost a fortune to collect 2Mbps & process it with mainframe computers• Too complicated for students to handleSolution:• Tailor the RF Receiver, Bit Sync, Frame Sync to one job• Put these functions on PC boards inside a PC• Develop an 8-bit version of the Processing Software for a 486 PC• As PCs get more powerful the processing gets faster, better, cheaper
