© 2018 Univelt Inc. All rights reserved.JAXA’s ERG (Exploration of Energization and Radiation in Geospace) Spacecraft, which is nicknamed Arase, was launched on 20 December 2016. Arase is a spin-stabilized and Sun-oriented spacecraft. Its mission is exploring how relativistic electrons in the radiation belts are generated during space storms. Two different on-ground attitude determination algorithms have been designed for the mission: a conventional straightforward algorithm that inherits from old missions and an advanced new algorithm. This paper discusses the design of the advanced attitude determination algorithm and presents the preliminary attitude estimation results for the spacecraft that were obtained after the launch. Results are presented along with the encountered challenges and suggested solutions.

The approach includes position, velocity and bias estimation with Unscented Kalman Filter. The measurements are taken from the actual ground station antennas at TURKSAT. In order to evaluate the accuracy and the robustness of the system, estimation is repeated with single and multiple ground station measurements for satellite T4B. Estimation results are compar...

All rights reserved.Exploiting the propellant free maneuver capability of solar sail satellites for high resolution Earth observation mission is addressed with an elliptical low Earth orbit. The employed orbit has a low perigee altitude for observation and a high apogee altitude for orbit maneuvers. For the purpose of mission analysis of this new concept, a reference satellite configuration is designed with an aim to determine the technological readiness level based on the characteristi...

© 2022. L&H Scientific Publishing, LLC. All Rights Reserved.The impulsive differential equations with unpredictable perturbations are under investigation. The definition of the discontinuous unpredictable function with the discrete unpredictable set of discontinuity moments is introduced. The existence and uniqueness of asymptotically stable discontinuous unpredictable solutions for quasi linear systems are proved. Examples with simulations are given to illustrate the results.

© 2021. Journal of Eye Movement Research All Rights Reserved.We report the results of an empirical study on gaze aversion during dyadic human-to-human conversation in an interview setting. To address various methodological challenges in assessing gaze-to-face contact, we followed an approach where the experiment was conducted twice, each time with a different set of interviewees. In one of them the interviewer’s gaze was tracked with an eye tracker, and in the other the interviewee’s gaze was tracked. The g...
