This paper focuses on ways in which space is being used to build capacity in science and technology in order to:


Conceptual design optimization of a nano-satellite launcher
Arslantaş, Yunus Emre; Tekinalp, Ozan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2012)
Recent developments in technology are changing the trend both in satellite design and application of that technology. As the number of small satellites built by experts from academia and private companies increases, more effective ways of inserting those satellites into orbit is needed. Among the various studies that focus on the launch of such small satellites, research on design of Launch Vehicle tailored for nano-satellites attracts special attention. In this thesis, Multiple Cooling Multi Objective Simu...
Satellite attitude control by integrator back-stepping with internal stabilization
Doruk, Resat Oezguer; Kocaoglan, Erol (2008-01-01)
Purpose - This paper aims to focus on the implementation of the integral back-stepping control on the model of BILSAT - 1 satellite of the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council (TUBITAK).
Multipurpose Platform for Power System Monitoring and Analysis With Sample Grid Applications
Atalik, Tevhid; ÇADIRCI, IŞIK; Demirci, Turan; Ermiş, Muammer; İNAN, TOLGA; Kalaycioglu, Alper Sabri; Salor, Ozgul (2014-03-01)
This paper is devoted to the design and implementation of a multipurpose platform (MPP) for power system monitoring and analysis. This MPP is a novel device, which combines the abilities of a power quality (PQ) analyzer, an event logger, a synchronized phasor measurement unit, and an interarea oscillation identifier, all in one device. The multiple functions of the proposed MPP can serve the needs of the power system operators (SOs) as a wide-area monitoring system to observe the states and stability of the...
Role of system architecture in architecture in developing new drafting tools
Sorguç, Arzu (Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2005-06-01)
In this study, the impact of information technologies in architectural design process is discussed. In this discussion, first the differences/nuances between the concept of software engineering and system architecture are clarified. Then, the design process in engineering, and design process in architecture has been compared by considering 3-D models as the center of design process over which the other disciplines involve the design. It is pointed out that in many high-end engineering applications, 3-D soli...
A progressive approach for processing satellite data by operational research
KUTER, SEMİH; Weber, Gerhard-Wilhelm; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-07-01)
Satellite data, together with spatial technologies, have a vital importance in earth sciences to continuously monitor natural and physical processes. However, images taken by earth-observing satellites are often associated with uncertainties due to atmospheric effects (i.e., absorption and scattering by atmospheric gases and aerosols). In this paper, a more adaptable approach for the removal of atmospheric effects from satellite data is introduced within an operational research perspective by utilizing nonp...
