The third batch of four satellites in the O3b medium Earth orbit (MEO) constellation, operated by O3b Networks, was successfully launched by Arianespace on December 18 from French Guiana using a Soyuz rocket. The first four satellites have been in orbit since June 2013, while the second batch, launched on July 10, 2014. The constellation of 8 became fully operational in September. The services offered by these eight satellites are highly successful - confirming the validity of the O3b desi...

Laser ranging from Earth to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was a milestone in the 50-year history of satellite laser ranging. Launched in 2009 and still orbiting the moon in 2014, LRO was the first spacecraft beyond Earth orbit to be routinely tracked using lasers, which were located at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and other facilities. “The advantage of laser ranging is its accuracy, and that was apparent even in the earliest e...

The Lockheed Martin [NYSE:LMT]-built Orion spacecraft has just completed its 2,700 mile journey from Naval Base San Diego back to Kennedy Space Center (KSC). The NASA Ground Systems Development and Operations team transported the spacecraft across the country by truck, and the entire trip took eight days. "Despite travelling a bit slower than what we're used to, Orion made pretty good time," said Michael Hawes, Lockheed Martin vice president and Orion program manager. "Most of the team hasn't...

Soyuz Flight VS10 Today's medium-lift Soyuz mission, which deployed the next four satellites for O3b Networks' pioneering connectivity service on a flight performed from the Spaceport in French Guiana, wrapped up an historic 12 months of commercial launch services for Arianespace. The 2-hr., 22-min. flight began with the propulsion of Soyuz' basic three-stage launch vehicle, and was followed by multiple burns of its Fregat upper stage. O3b Networks' four satellites were released in two pha...

NASA and an international team of planetary scientists have found evidence in meteorites on Earth that indicates Mars has a distinct and global reservoir of water or ice near its surface. Though controversy still surrounds the origin, abundance and history of water on Mars, this discovery helps resolve the question of where the "missing Martian water" may have gone. Scientists continue to study the planet's historical record, trying to understand the apparent shift from an early wet and warm ...

    He was involved in a project for a robotic lunar mission, as test-bed for Google X-Prize rover “Amalia” for “Team Italia”. He has worked on electrical power sub-system and locomotion sub-system. He has been supervisor of 15 students group involved in realizing the project.

     

    He was involved in testing of LARES Satellite Cube Corner Reflectors (CCRs) in a simulated space environment facility specifically designed at “La Sapienza” for the test. The tests concerns the optical and thermal properties of the CCRs.

     

    He has been designer of part of the facility (materials, shroud, optical bench, mechanical systems). He has been performer, designer and supervisor of most of the tests. He was responsible of the systems for the thermal control of the breadboard under test, for the operation of the pumping system and for the sensors (thermal, pressure)  inside the chamber and on the breadboards.

    He has been involved in compiling test procedures for LARES Satellite in collaboration with his team, Carlo Gavazzi Space and Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI).

     

    He has good knowledge of ECSS standards for space environment simulation (ECSS-E-10-04A) and ECSS standards for systems testing (ECSS-E-10-03A).

     

    He arranged the optical table and designed the software to process the pictures of Far Field Diffraction Pattern (FFDP) generated after the tests, during a 2 months stage in Germany at “Deutsches Geoforschungszentrum GFZ” .
