Towards a distributed real-time system for future satellite applications
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The Linux operating system and shared Ethernet are alternative technologies with the potential to reduce both the development time and costs of satellites as well as the supporting infrastructure. Modular ...
Reusable software defined radio platform for micro-satellites
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
This thesis describes the design and implementation of a software platform for software defined radio (SDR). This platform was to form part of an experimental satellite payload. Several other experiments were also housed ...
An investigation of satellite maneuvering and orientation strategies using an air bearing table
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
In this thesis, the maneuvering and orientation of an inspection/service satellite is investigated. This thesis will demonstrate a simplified satellite maneuver around another satellite (for docking purposes). This is ...
Attitude determination and control system of a nanosatellite
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-12)
The aim of this project was to design and test a partial attitude determination and control system for a nanosatellite. The reaction wheel system was designed and tested as an actuator for the nanosatellite. This reaction ...
