  1. 1. HAXSHow to Join C-9 CanSat L.P. Glider Glider Oculus
  2. 2. University Nanosatellite Program University Nanosat Program was established in 1999 as a means to train and educatemembers of the future aerospace workforce in the United States and further the researchand development of small satellites. This is accomplished through a two-year, student-led nanosatellite design and fabrication contest in which schools submit a proposal to the AFRL including a science mission relevant to the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL)and budget near $100,000. From the application pool, the top 10-12 schools are selected to participate. After the initial proposals are approved, the program has two stages: the first is the two-year design and fabrication period that ends in a Flight Competition Review (FCR) where the top satellite is chosen based on several criteria. The secondphase is reserved for the school that produces the best nanosatellite system and consists of further testing at AFRL facilities, culminating in a launch into space. Huskysat Home
  3. 3. HuskySatMTU first took part in this program in 2003 with the start of the Nanosat-3 (NS-3)program in which we took third place with our nanosatellite system dubbed "HuskySat."Using the experienced gained during the NS-3 competition, MTU sought industry partnersand applied for the competitions fifth iteration in the fall of 2006. The Aerospace teamhas grown since the days of Huskysat. Mission Home
  4. 4. HuskySat MissionThe mission was to measure L-Band radiation, to determine the amount of soil moisturecontent in specific regions. If you can determine soil moisture content, you can betterpredict what the weather in an area will be.The secondary part of the mission was testing a memory shape alloy boom deployableboom. This can be viewed in the above display case, as the long, metallic cylinder. Thiswas used for gravity gradient stabilization.Arc jet thrusters were also used and testedas part of the attitude control system. Anexample of one operating can be seen here. Home NEXT
  5. 5. Oculus The Oculus Project is a collaboration of MTU students and industry sponsors taking part in the University Nanosat-5 Competition, sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratorys Space Vehicles Directorate (AFRL/VS), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), and the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Composed of subteams listed below, the Oculus Project is currently the largest in the MTU Aerospace Enterprise with more than 70 members. The competition entails building a meter cube satellite in which the winner will be guaranteed a launch into space. GNCHome Power OBDC
  6. 6. K-12 OutreachThe Purpose for the K12 project is to provide an outreachprogram that educates k-12 students. K12 is worth 5% ofthe final ratings when it comes to deciding whatuniversities satellites will be launched into space. It alsoprovide exciting educational opportunities to the localschools in the area.The K-12 Outreach program will be working with cricketsatellites, measuring instruments that can be built quicklyand cheaply. These are ideal for K-12 outreach programand can educate K-12 students about space and theatmosphere around the earth. Home Oculus
  7. 7. StructuresThe Oculus Structures team is responsible fordesigning, modeling, and testing the panels andboxes used for housing all components. Primaryfields of our work focus on designing the isogridpanels and component boxes, finite elementmodeling, thermal analysis, separation systemdesign, and antennae box deployment. Oculus Home
  8. 8. PowerThe Power Subsystem consists of the entire powersystem of the satellite, including Solar Cells,Batteries and Charge Circuitry, and Power boards. Oculus Home
  9. 9. GNCGuidance Navigation and Control Team has one ofthe most complex tasks of any team in the Oculusbecause it requires coordination between thesensors, software, and mechanical and electricalactuators to control the satellite in space andconduct the primary mission of the satellite. Partsof the Magnetic Torquers and Reaction Wheel aredisplayed. Oculus Home
  10. 10. OBDCOBDCs task is to maintain data operations in thesatellite and on the ground. This includesprocessing information gathered from sensors andcarrying out mission tasks based on data andpre-defined requirements.Every subsystem interacts with OBDC in one wayor another. The OBDC computer activates eachsubsystem in the beginning phases of the mission.Based on a set of rules, it controls the satellite byoperating the thrusters and reading the gyrocube/earth horizon sensors. Oculus Home

  12. 12. Ion Propulsion LabThe Ion Space Propulsion Laboratory (Isp Lab) at MichiganTechnological University was founded in 2000 under thedirection of Professor Lyon B. King, advisor to theAerospace Enterprise.The lab was set up with the following goals: • explore the fundamental operating processes in plasma space thrusters • develop means to improve the performance of existing technologies • investigate innovative new devices and methods for in-space propulsionThe laboratory is capable of experimental ground-testing offull scale thrusters and components operating ontraditional as well as advanced propellants.While not directly connected to Aerospace in terms ofclasses, the two labs are physically directly connected.Many people in the Isp lab are former Aerospace Students Home
  13. 13. Lunar PenetratorProducing a proof of concept for NASA, a group of studentsin Aerospace, developing a system to put a one meter longrod into the lunar surface, to take seismograph readings,along with soil temperature and consistency readings. Thisdata will be transmitted to an orbiting spacecraft. Home
  14. 14. C-9 Reduced Gravity ResearchThe Zero Gravity Research team applies for the chance to perform Zero Gravityexperiments in NASAs C-9 aircraft, affectionately known as the Vomit Comet. Thisplane flies in a parabola simulating periods of zero gravity for those inside the plane.Experiments have ranged from boom vibration modal measurement testing, lunardust removal from solar panels, and taylor cone formation on tungsten tips used forelectron propulsion. Home Hoe
  15. 15. CanSat The goal of CanSat begins with a launch to 3000 feet in the payload section of a rocket. At the apogee, CanSat will be ejected, where it will deploy its main parachute. The vehicle descends to the ground, gliding towards a landing site, wirelessly transmitted by the ground station. Reaching the landing site, CanSat detaches from its parachute so as not to obstruct the cameras’ fields of view, and then tumbles to a stop. After allowing the vehicle to come to rest, the landing mechanism deploys, bringing the CanSat into an upright position. It then remainsHome in the field providing a full 360° view of the local environment.
  16. 16. HAXS HAXS [High-Altitude eXperimentS) is a small and new team in Aerospace, researching cost effective high-altitude payload delivery methods. They are beginning experimentation and development of hybrid rocket motors. The focus of the experimentation will be cost reduction of casing, nozzle, and propellant material and manufacturing.Home The primary goal is competing in the N-Prize competition, a challenge to launch an impossibly small satellite into orbit on a ludicrously small budget, for a pitifully small cash prize.
  17. 17. HAARP Glider High altitude autonomous research platformAn autonomous glider design that will becarried to an altitude of as much as 20,000 feetwith a meteorological balloon carrying a threepound payload. At 20,000 feet it will separateand fly back to the recovery site with three-axisawareness that enable pitch, yaw, and tiltcontrol. This data is necessary for the payloadmission to determine horizontal and verticalwind velocities. The vehicle also has an electricmotor capable of providing enough thrust toachieve level flight between 2,500 feet and10,000 feet for five minutes.Home
