Environmental Hardening of a Mobile-Manipulator System for Nuclear Environments
The research report involves the radiation hardening of a commercially-available, mobile robot, the REMOTEC ANDROS. This hardening effort will culminate in the availability of a mega-rad...

A Conceptual Study of A Solar Power Satellite Using Centrifugal Force
We studied the self deployable Solar Power Satellite (SPS) using centrifugal force in order to explore ways in reducing construction costs. We designed a 340 kW SPS, and studied the unfolding...

Thermal Response in Antenna Under Laser Irradiation
This investigation focuses on the thermal response of two objects under medium-intensity continuous-wave (CW) laser irradiation: (1) a homogeneous slab and (2) a complex electronic component,...

Overview of Space Environmental Effects
The natural environment for low Earth orbit subjects satellites to various forms of damage, ranging from particulate impacts, ultraviolet light, atomic oxygen erosion and charged particle...

Roles of the Lunar-Solar Power System In Development of the Resources of Greater Earth for Mankind
The proposed Lunar-Solar Power (LSP) System collects solar power on the moon. The power is converted to beams of microwaves and transmitted to fields of microwave receivers on Earth that...

A Practical Application of Concession Schemes to Space Energy Projects
It has been shown in previous papers and studies that some of the financing schemes involving a mix of private and government funds, which are used for terrestrial large infrastructures,...

Inter-stellar Propulsion: The Need for Speed
Interstellar travel is certainly one of mankind's next step to reach for the stars. Four ideas for interstellar propulsion are discussed in this paper: the Orion Project, Deep Space Ramjets,...
