  • Design of a femto-satellite for high-altitude thermospheric studies 

    Moschtaq, Mohammad Raschiq (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-02-12)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This work deals with the design of a femto-satellite for scientific studies. The goal of the femto-satellite is to model the density of the thermosphere by measuring the orbital decay caused by atmospheric drag. The proposed ...
  • The role of small satellites in developing countries for sustainable development goals 

    Ziccarelli, Sebastian Nicolas (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-11-30)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Smallsats will redefine the conducted technology process through low cost programs affordable for developing countries. Africa has several natural resources to care and monitor in order to use the land and water in effective ...
  • Cloud formation in the atmospheric boundary layer 

    González Rivero, Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-09-09)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    The representation of cloud formation in weather and climate models remains a challenge, since it involves very complex phenomena such as turbulent mixing, which is key for the ability of clouds to form and dissipate. Thus, ...
  • Model Predictive Control (MPC) of quadrotors using LPV techniques 

    Iyer, Chandrashekhar Anand (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-07-13)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This Thesis objective was to apply Model predictive control (MPC) on a quadcopters using linear parameter varying (LPV) techniques. In order to do so the non-linear mathematical model of the quadcopter was put in the Linear ...

  • Impact hazard assessment from the automatic detection of meteoric and re-entry fireballs recorded by the SPMN network 

    Peña Asensio, Eloy (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-02-14)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The disruption of asteroids and comets can produce meteoroids that end up impacting the Earth’s atmosphere, creating shock waves or even excavating craters so they generate hazardous scenarios. In this thesis different ...
  • Guidance and control algorithms for UAV indoor applications 

    David Du Mutel De Pierrepont Franzetti, Iris (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-03-05)

  • Mission analysis for a swarm of femtosatellites to study the lower thermosphere 

    Aidynbay, Nurmakhan (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-02-14)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The lower thermosphere (between 100 and 250 km) is badly known due to the scarcity of operating satellites in this region. Nevertheless, it is very relevant for the study of Earth-Sun relations, satellite re-entry ...
  • Coupling strategies for solving the RANS equations 

    Suárez Martínez, Guillermo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-02-14)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:   Deutsches Zentrum für Luft-und Raumfahrt
    For the present work two implicit methods of coupling the compressible Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations in conjunction with the one equation Spalart-Allmaras turbulence model have been developed. The first approach, ...
