  11. 11. Space Academy Singapore (SAS) jointly organized bySingapore’s premiere space training programme conducted with a special focus topromote science and engineering among students and create public awareness in the space industry. All rounded students aged 8 -12 (2 day programme) and 14 – 21 years old (5 dayintensive programme) partake in the programme conducted by current and former NASA engineers/scientists, currently consultants to present-day NASA projects.The rigorous course follows the coveted astronaut selection programme.
  12. 12. Space Academy Focus & ContentSAS Youth Programme (14 – 21 Years Old) • An exciting Space-themed all rounded program for our youth • Science & Math intensive  Re-ignite interests in mathematics and sciences engineering! • Personal and leadership development: Snow City Survival • Political Debate: “Who owns the Geostationary Orbit?!”First and one of its • Industry-focused  a real possibility of a careerkind to be successfully • All done through hands-on, adrenaline pumpingconducted inSingapore and Asia Actions ! Water-Rocket! Rover Mission! Many More!!!
  13. 13. Programme Highlights 2 tp gt p xp  c 1 t ln 1     1  1 gt x 2 Rocket Propulsion p c p  1   ln 1     1  1  p 2 2 – Learn the theory, history and modern approaches to rocket propulsion and rocket design – Hands-on! Working as a team to build high- pressure water-rockets and evaluate your design through a flight test – Systematic review of activity: Compare computer simulation results, analysis, and flight data
  14. 14. Programme HighlightsSystems Engineering- Learn principles of project and risk management- It’s all about putting the pieces together and understanding your choices !The most interesting lectureswere Systems Engineering andRisk Management as I could seethe relevance of the topics to mydaily life.
  15. 15. Programme HighlightsSatellite and Communication– Downlink data from a satellite over Singapore!– Understand how satellite orbits affect global communications– Learn the fundamentals of antennas and ground stations
  16. 16. Programme HighlightsAdvanced Robotics Systems– Moon/Mars Rover Control Mission!– Operate robotics and explore simulated Mars terrain– Situational awareness
  17. 17. Programme HighlightsCore Astronautics/Aeronautics CurriculumChallenges in Space Environment- Covers biological issues human encounter in space environments and countermeasures one should take.Fundamentals of Flight- Covers the history of flight, advancing aerospace technology through the years, principles of aeronautics and flight dynamics, engines, aerodynamics and basic principles of pilot training.Advanced Aerospace Technology and next generation MRO- Covers the latest challenges in aircraft support services, maintenance in a new era ofcomposites and new alloys, studies in lighter aircraft, “green” technology and thematerial sciences behind civil and military aircraft.
  18. 18. Astrodynamics & Robotic Exploration Module (Junior & Youth)- Cover the history of Astrodynamics , deriving related equations and understand thefundamentals of the NASA Robotic Exploration Mission.Satellite Navigation, Location & Tracking (Junior & Youth)- To learn how to process and analyze downloaded imagery from satellites and gain a better understanding of real- world satellite applications through hands on experience with guidance from camp instructors.Fundamentals of Rocketry (Junior & Youth)- Cover fundamentals of rocketry, before designing and building their own water rocket system in groups and finally launching their water rocket,measuring the height of the launch and rocket trajectory.
  19. 19. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Programme (Junior & Youth)- Cover fundamentals of integrating “man and machine” to form a formidable intelligenceplatform, with its relevance highlighted. As part of the programme, participants get to fly anAR Drone remotely controlled via an iphone or computer, and is expected to pass throughobstacles successfully.Space commercialization (Youth)- Cover the realities of risk-taking in space projects, especially with tight schedule andbudget constraint. Informed risk management is now a vital part of mission design andtradeoff analysis. Project personnel must anticipate the risk drivers and mitigate them inorder to support the hard choices to meet cost and schedule goals without compromisingmission objectives.Paintball (Youth)- This fast paced, high tension, team oriented sport is an excellent team building exercise.With a combat scenario similar to astronauts undergoing military training, participants arepressured to make quick decisions, force good teamwork, and hones leadership.
  20. 20. Extreme Environment Training (Snow City: Junior & Youth ; Diving: Youth)- Participants are put to test in an extreme environment of -11 to -14 Degree Celsius at theSnow City. They are expected to work, think and act fast if they want to survive in the cold,with a set of mission objectives to be completed. This activity requires physical and mentalstrength, fostering team work and critical thinking.Students will also undergo high element activities which students confront their fears, and atthe same time, creates opportunities for observing human reaction in negotiating challenges.The objective of this session is to emphasize on the importance of team work as completingsimple tasks will prove to be difficult under different conditions.Industry Site Visits (Youth)- Industry site visits to Aerospace and Space related companies will be conductedto allow them to interact with and appreciate the industry.
  21. 21. SAS Alumni Objectives: - Expose themselves to a wider network with industry players - To get heads up of the current trend and space industry in the future - Explore possible opportunities for their future career Initiatives: - Organize networking events and marathon runs for the industry and SSTA Youth Club - Plan and suggest activities or program to enhance their knowledge - Organize and participate in Space challenge and other related events
