Soyuz Flight VS11 Authorization has been given for tomorrow's Arianespace Soyuz launch from French Guiana, providing the "green light" for this medium-lift mission that will further expand Europe's Galileo global navigation satellite system. The approval was granted today after the regular pre-launch review for Arianespace flights - which confirmed the readiness of Soyuz and its payload of two Galileo Full Operational Capability (FOC) spacecraft, the launch site and associated infrastructu...

Using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have found that dark matter does not slow down when colliding with itself, meaning it interacts with itself less than previously thought. Researchers say this finding narrows down the options for what this mysterious substance might be. Dark matter is an invisible matter that makes up most of the mass of the universe. Because dark matter does not reflect, absorb or emit light, it can only be trace...

It takes a lot of ingenuity - not to mention a massive quantity of sheer force - to get satellites into orbit. Now space engineers are applying comparable ingenuity to the challenge of getting their missions out of there, too. ESA, working closely with Europe's satellite builders, will ask industry for new designs to help remove satellites from orbit at the end of their working lives, as well as 'passivating' them - making them safer for neighbouring missions. The selected concepts will be...

The team that sustains the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Joint Polar Satellite System Common Ground System (JPSS CGS) is now located much closer to key agency facilities - in support of a major upgrade to the existing system and to provide efficiencies to future missions - the company announced today. Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) moved 70 positions from Aurora, Colorado , to Riverdale, Maryland . The 1,600 mile move co...

The best observations so far of the dusty gas cloud G2 confirm that it made its closest approach to the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way in May 2014 and has survived the experience. The new result from ESO's Very Large Telescope shows that the object appears not to have been significantly stretched and that it is very compact. It is most likely to be a young star with a massive core that is still accreting material. The black hole itself has not yet shown any increase in ac...

    OHB System A.G.
    Karl-Ferdinand-Braun-Straße 8, 28359 Bremen (Germany)
    www.ohb.de

    He was involved in all activities concerning assembly, integration and testing on GALILEO FOC (Full Operation Capability) Project. Mainly he was involved in clean room activities and electrical testing on system and sub-system level: IFT (Interface Testing), FAI (Function After Integration), FPT (Full Performance Testing), FFPT (Full Functional and Performance Testing). All activities have been performed on the flight models from FM01 to FM04. He was been Island Lead on Island 5a for Payload Testing: he was leading a small group of operators for task assignment, tests execution, procedures design and writing and improvements on MGSE and EGSE. He was responsible of the correct execution of testing and allocation of men power. As Island Lead, he was involved in technical and preparation meetings (TRR, PTR) together with key role personnel, AIT Managers and ESA representative in Bremen.

    He was involved also in some activities related to the Environmental Test Campaign of GALILEO FOC: design of MGSE and cables support for TVT (Thermal Vacuum Testing), procedures (early stage) for TVT, flanges and support brackets.

    Currently he is detached in The Netherlands, working in ETS-ESTEC for the Environmental Test Campaign on GALILEO FOC. He is performing activities related to thermal and electrical testing at system level. He is involved in all the activities related to TVT preparation and execution: procedures design, tools development, test performance as both electrical and thermal engineer.

    Stress/Strain Engineer - Document Verification - Trainee

    AEROSOFT S.p.A
    Centro Direzionale Isola E7, 80143 Naples (Italy)

    The main task of the training was to validate and calculate in first approximation the structural behaviour of some items of LPF of A350 – XWB. In particular, he has worked on flexible brackets and on horizontal panel, in fatigue environment. He was in charge to calculate structural behaviour of structures under fatigue and damage tolerance conditions.

    He was responsible of fatigue spectrum generation, life cycle for damage tolerance calculation, analysis of stress on structure modelled with FEM software (Nastran/Patran). He was responsible of the production of stress-sheet for item analysed and for the correction of previous issues.

    Via Eudossiana 16, 00184 Rome (Italy)

    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).
