ЦитатаNORSAT 1NORSAT 1 [UTIAS] The Norsk Romsenter (Norwegian Space Centre) signed a contract in June 2013 with UTIAS (University of Toronto, Institute for Aerospace Studies) for the construction of the NORSAT 1 microsatellite. For less than 20 millon NOK, the University of Toronto will construct the platform for the satellite and integrate the payloads before launch.The new satellite will be built to investigate solar radiation, space weather and detect ship traffic. The launch is planned 2016. The Norwegian Space Centre will coordinate the development and the integration of the instruments for the new satellite platform. The new satellite will also have its mission control in Norway.The instruments planned for NORSAT-1 require a larger satellite platform than that of the Norwegian satellite AISSat-1, launched in July 2010. NORSAT-1 will therfore measure 20 × 20 × 40 cm, whereas AISSat-1 measures 20 × 20 × 20 cm.NORSAT-1 will carry an AIS receiver for performing ship detection from space. The new AIS receiver will be more advanced and employed to test out new detection algorithms. This AIS receiver will detect and track maritime traffic in Norwegian and international waters via the Automatic Identification System (AIS).The instruments will cover several aspects of scientific research focusing on the sun, including measuring Total Solar Irradiation (TSI) with one instrument, and measuring electron plasma from the sun with a Langmuir probe (LP). The two instruments are being constructed by Norwegian and international research teams, and were chosen because they were the furthest along in their development process and fit the overall plans for the satellite best.NORSAT-1 will be launched to a polar orbit at approximately 600 kilometers height.[TH]Nation:[/TH] Norway[TH]Type / Application:[/TH] Science, technology[TH]Operator:[/TH] Norsk Romsenter[TH]Contractors:[/TH] UTIAS (University of Toronto, Institute for Aerospace Studies) (bus); Norsk Romsenter (payload)[TH]Equipment:[/TH] AIS-Receiver[TH]Configuration:[/TH] Generic Nanosatellite Bus (GNB)[TH]Propulsion:[/TH] [TH]Power:[/TH] Solar cells, batteries[TH]Lifetime:[/TH] [TH]Mass:[/TH] [TH]Orbit:[/TH] 600 km

ЦитатаApr 11, 2016A trio of miniaturized satellites are ready for launch on Arianespace's next Soyuz mission Three "Ps in a pod!" The three miniaturized CubeSat payloads from ESA's Fly Your Satellite! university program are integrated with Soyuz launcher hardware. At left, the CubeSats are shown arranged side-by-side in their P-POD deployment system. The P-POD is then secured to a vertical mounting bracket that has been attached to the Soyuz launcher's ASAP-S platform (photos center, and right).Payload integration has begun for Arianespace's Soyuz mission on April 22, with the flight's three miniaturized auxiliary satellite passengers now installed on a special platform that enables multiple payloads to be deployed by the workhorse launcher. This spacecraft trio is from the Fly Your Satellite! program, an educational outreach of the European Space Agency (ESA) in collaboration with European universities. With the Fly Your Satellite! activity, students are provided practical experience with a space hardware project as part of the newly-established ESA Academy.For Arianespace's Soyuz mission to low Earth orbit next week, the three Fly Your Satellite! spacecraft are of the so-called CubeSat-category - sized at 10.5 X 10.5 cm. each, and weighing 1 kg. per payload. They are installed in a deployment system called P-POD, and will be released during a mission lasting a total of four hours.The three CubeSats are: OUFTI-1 from the University of Liege, Belgium, which will test a new communications subsystem; e-st@r-II, developed by the Polytechnic of Turin, Italy to demonstrate an attitude control system using measurements of the Earth's magnetic field; and AAUSAT4 from the University of Aalborg, Denmark, to operate an automated ocean vessel identification system.The P-POD deployment system containing these spacecraft is installed on Soyuz' ASAP-S platform, which can accommodate several auxiliary payloads. Also integrated on ASAP-S will be the 303-kg. satellite called Microscope - a French CNES space agency spacecraft designed to validate a cornerstone of modern physics: the equivalence principle described by Albert Einstein.The primary payload for Arianespace's Soyuz mission on April 22 is Europe's Sentinel-1B satellite, equipped with a C-SAR (C-band synthetic aperture radar) instrument for all-weather, day/night images as part of the Copernicus Earth observation program. Copernicus is managed by the European Space Agency (ESA) in partnership with the European Commission.The upcoming Soyuz mission is designated Flight VS14 in Arianespace's launcher numbering system, and will be the company's third of up to 12 launches planned for 2016 using its family of the medium-lift Soyuz, heavy-lift Ariane 5 and lightweight Vega vehicles. Flight VS14 follows two heavy-lift flights with Ariane 5 performed to date this year: one orbiting the EUTELSAT 65 West A relay satellite in March; and the other lofting Intelsat 29e in January.

ЦитатаApr 12, 2016Fueling is completed for the upper stage on Arianespace's next Soyuz missionAfter emerging fr om the Spaceport's FCube fueling operations hall (at left), the Fregat upper stage for Arianespace's Soyuz Flight VS14 is transferred by road (photo, right) to the S3B clean room, where it will be integrated with the mission's satellite passengers.The Fregat upper stage for Arianespace's upcoming Soyuz launch has completed its fueling at the Spaceport in French Guiana and is ready to be integrated with the mission's multi-satellite European payload. Processing of the upper stage for Flight VS14 was performed in the Spaceport's Fregat Fueling Facility (FCube) - which entered service last year as the latest site at French Guiana created to support Arianespace's sustained operational cadence.FCube reduces the time required to "top off" Fregat upper stages during Soyuz launch campaigns. It also frees up another facility previously used for Fregat upper stage fueling operations, the Spaceport's S3 building - making the S3 facility more available for the processing of customer spacecraft to be lofted by the various members of Arianespace's launch vehicle family. Fregat is ready to receive the passengers for Flight VS14Fregat is produced by NPO Lavochkin, a company which is part of the Soyuz launcher's Russian industrial team, and serves as an autonomous and flexible upper stage that extends Soyuz' capability to perform a full range of missions.After its fueling in the FCube, the Fregat was transferred by road today to the Spaceport's S3B clean room, wh ere the upper stage will be integrated with Flight VS14's passengers: Sentinel-1B, which will provide all-weather, day/night images as part of Europe's Copernicus Earth observation program; France's Microscope, designed to validate the equivalence principle described by Albert Einstein; and three miniaturized CubeSats for the European Space Agency's Fly Your Satellite! university student program.Flight VS14 is set for liftoff from French Guiana on April 22, deploying its multi-satellite payload during a mission lasting four hours. This will be Arianespace's third launch in 2016, continuing the company's pace for as many as 12 flights this year using its medium-lift Soyuz, heavy-lift Ariane 5 and lightweight Vega.

ЦитатаApr 19, 2016Soyuz reaches the launch zone for this week's Arianespace mission The basic three-stage Soyuz for Flight VS14 is suspended over the launch pad following today's rollout at the Spaceport in French Guiana.The Soyuz for Arianespace's next medium-lift mission has arrived at the launch zone in French Guiana, where it stands ready to receive the multi-satellite payload that will be lofted on this April 22 flight.Flight VS14's satellite passengers are shown partially encapsulated in their protective payload fairing as part of the Soyuz launcher's "upper composite." Applying procedures that have been followed since the workhorse Soyuz launcher ushered in the Space Age, the basic three-stage vehicle emerged today from its MIK integration building in the Spaceport's northwestern sector.Riding horizontally on a transporter/erector rail car, Soyuz was then transferred to the Spaceport's ELS launch zone - which was followed by its erection to the vertical orientation and positioning over the launch pad, suspended in place by four large support arms.With the transfer completed, all was ready for the mobile gantry to be moved into position around Soyuz. This purpose-built, 53-meter-tall structure provides a protected environment for installation of the launcher's "upper composite," which consists of the multiple satellite passengers, Fregat upper stage and two-piece protective payload fairing.To be lofted on the April 22 mission - which is designated VS14 in Arianespace's numbering system - is Sentinel-1B, which will provide all-weather, day/night images as part of Europe's Copernicus Earth observation program; France's Microscope, designed to validate the equivalence principle described by Albert Einstein; and three miniaturized CubeSats for the European Space Agency's Fly Your Satellite! university student program.Flight VS14 is scheduled to lift off at precisely 6:02:13 p.m. local time in French Guiana, with its passengers to be deployed during a flight lasting approximately four hours after liftoff. The total payload lift performance is estimated at 3,099 kg.European Commission website - Copernicus: ec.europa.eu/growth/sectors/space/copernicus/index_en.htmEuropean Space Agency website - Copernicus: www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Observing_the_Earth/CopernicusEuropean Space Agency website, Fly Your Satellite!/CubeSats: www.esa.int/Education/CubeSats_-_Fly_Your_Satellite
ЦитатаApr 20, 2016Soyuz meets its multi-satellite payload for Friday's Arianespace launchThe integration of Flight VS14's "upper composite" began with its transfer to the launch pad (at left). It was then raised to the upper level of the mobile gantry for installation atop the Soyuz launcher (photos center, and right).The medium-lift Soyuz for Arianespace's upcoming launch from French Guiana is now complete, following the integration of its "upper composite" - which consists of a five-satellite payload to support European sustainable development and science, while also promoting science and technology careers. This activity occurred at the Spaceport's ELS launch complex, beginning with the upper composite's transfer yesterday from the S3B payload preparation facility to the launch pad on a special transporter. After arriving at the ELS site's launch pad, the upper composite was hoisted to the upper level of a purpose-built mobile gantry - which provides a protected environment for the vertical installation atop Soyuz.Designated Flight VS14, the Soyuz mission will begin with a liftoff at exactly 06:02:13 p.m. (local time in French Guiana) on April 22, deploying its passengers into low Earth orbit during a mission lasting 4 hours, 52 seconds. Flight VS14 Payloads: Sentinel-1B, Microscope, And Three CubesatsThe first spacecraft deployed will be Sentinel-1B, a satellite that joins the space segment of Copernicus - the European Commission's program with the European Space Agency (ESA). Sentinel-1B is a C-band radar observation platform designed to provide a comprehensive solution for radar surveillance of the environment and for security issues. This payload has a liftoff mass estimated at 2,164 kg.Next to be released by Soyuz is a trio of "Fly Your Satellite!" CubeSats - miniaturized spacecraft that provide European university students practical experience in key phases of a challenging, real satellite project. The CubeSats weigh 1 kg. each, deployed from a 3-kg. dispenser.Completing the mission will be release of the CNES French space agency's Microscope scientific satellite, which will verify the equivalency principle for inertial and gravitational mass as stated by Albert Einstein. Microscope has an estimated liftoff mass of 303 kg.Flight VS14 will be Arianespace's initial Soyuz flight of 2016, and is one of up to 12 missions planned from the Spaceport this year with its launcher family of the medium-lift Soyuz, heavy-lift Ariane 5 and lightweight Vega. Arianespace has conducted two flights so far in 2016, both using Ariane 5.
