Aalto-1 tiene como objetivo ser el primer satélite que Finlandia pondrá en órbita. El proyecto esta desarrollado por la Universidad Aalto (Helsinki, Finlandia). El propósito de su misión científica esta orientado a la toma de imágenes 2D en un determinado espectro electromagnético, así como la monitorización de radiación en el espacio cercano a la tierra. El satélite esta desarrollado dentro del marco universitario, siguiendo un modelo de desarrollo abierto y basado en tecnologías y estándares libres.

Ponente: Adrian Yanes, estudiante de la Universidad Europea de Madrid, pertenece al Departamento de Comunicaciones y Redes (Commet) de la Universidad Aalto de Finlandia. Actualmente, se trabaja en el proyecto Aalto-1, diseñando la arquitectura software para el primer proyecto de nanosatélite finlandés.

  32. 32. Solar photon sail§  Each solar photon carries momentum, doubled if reflected§  About 9 uN/m2 thrust density for perfect mirror§  At 1 AU, 1 N sail would be 330x330 m, membrane mass 1200 kg if made of 7.6 um polyimide sheet, characteristic acceleration 0.8 mm/s2§  Thrust vectoring is possible, but thrust magnitude and direction change in unison for flat sail§  Solar sail is old idea (roughly 100 years), implemented in space first time in 2010 (IKAROS, Japan)§  Technical challenges of solar sail: –  Membrane should be very thin –  Membranes support structures should be very lightweight as well –  Everything must be tightly packaged and folded during launch Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite
  33. 33. Electric solar wind sail§  Solar wind –  Plasma stream emitted from Sun in all directions –  Speed 350-800 km/s (lowest in ecliptic plane, higher elsewhere)‫‏‬ –  Mean density 7 cm-3 at Earth –  Variable, but always present –  Dynamic pressure ~2 nPa at Earth (1/5000 of photon pressure)‫‏‬§  Electric sail (E-sail)‫‏‬ –  Slowly rotating system of long, thin, conducting and centrifugally stretched tethers which are kept positively charged (~ +20 kV) by spacecraft electron gun –  Only modest amount of electric power needed, obtained from solar panels –  ~500 nN/m thrust per length –  For example, 100x20 km tethers, 1 N thrust, 100 kg mass, specific acceleration 10 mm/s2 Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite

Trapped proton environment anisotropies Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite
  40. 40. Payloads:Radiation Monitor University of Helsinki•  Sensor unit based on Si detector and CsI(TI) scintillator•  Readout electronics consist of a pulse shaping and peak-hold circuitry with a pre-amplifier signal being digitised with high sampling rate•  FPGA based logic to count particle events hitting the sensor Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite

  45. 45. Space environment:Electromagnetic radiation•  The Sun is a variable star –  Strong variations at short (UV, X, gamma) and long (radio) waves•  Black space is cold –  The illuminated side gets heated, the opposite side radiates the heat (IR) and cools –  Thermal design is very tricky •  Extreme example: BepiColombo between the Sun and Mercury Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite
  46. 46. Cosmic radiationCosmic rays are very energetic charged particles •  Galactic: > 100 MeV •  Solar: < 1 GeV •  Anomalous: around 10 MeV –  Note these energies are much higher than the energy of solar wind particlesCause single events in electronicsMost energetic cosmic rays penetrate through theEarth’s magnetic field and are stopped in theatmosphere causing air showers Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite
  47. 47. Vacuum, there is no airNo air means that there is no convection.The only heat exchange way is radiationNothing to grab, you cannot flySome materials can just evaporateVery tricky to lubricate mechanismsThere is no electrical conduction, a satellite canbuild up static electric charge which can damageelectronics Aalto-1 The Finnish Student Satellite
