    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    This document contains the design of a solar sail. Three main parts will be studied in this project: structural design, thermal design and deployment . The first one will be based in studying the different ...
  • Design of a solar sail as the propulsion system for a nanosatellite 

    Rique Garaizar, Orzuri (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-06)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    This project presents the design of a solar sail as a feasible solution to thrust nanosatellites. A solar sail is a high-energy space propulsion system that uses solar radiation pressure to push large ultra-thin mirror to ...

    Diez Garcia, Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-31)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    With the miniaturization of the electrical components and the advance in aerospace technology, new methods of spatial propulsion have been developed. This thesis project is focused on solar radiation pressure modelling, ...
  • Study of Earth-Moon trajectories with solar sail propulsion 

    Canales García, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-09)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    The computation of Earth-to-Moon trajectories constitutes an important and interesting chapter of spacecraft trajectory design. The traditional techniques based on Hohmann maneuvers and patched conics allowed the fast ...
