    Design and Optimization of the Restraining Device of a Space Telescope Primary Mirror, master thesis at Politecnico di Milano

    Re-design of the restraining devices of the Optical Breadboard (OBB) mirror, a small scale demonstrator, designed and built within the Large Aperture Telescope Technology (LATT) ESA project -- commissioned to OHB-Italia. Building of Nastran FEM, opto-structural optimization (with custom designed optimizer in Python) of mirror flexures to minimize wavefront error and to ensure mirror stability under launching loads. Identified new numerical and experimental activities to estimate and measure wavefront error in a 0-g and low-temperature environment.

    TETRIS: Tethered Debris mission. Project carried out within the university course of Space Mission Analysis and Design at Politecnico di Milano

    The in-orbit-demonstration (IOD) mission aimed to assess the feasibility of capturing a non cooperative space debris by means of a tether-net system. The phase-A design of both a chaser and a satellite employed as target debris was investigated. Relevant for the objectives of the project was the design of both the shooting system of the net and the release mechanism of the tether. I was in charge of the design of the structure and configuration subsystem. I was team leader/system engineer during the third month of the project, coordinating 10 colleagues.
