Mechanics

The mechanical structure of DTUsat secures all subsystems with respect to each other. The structure is dimensioned to withstand the stress during the launch phase, provide maximum shielding from the solar radition and still be as light as possible.

Furthermore the MECH subsystem provides the mechanism for the unfoldable Gravity Gradient Boom and the PPL antenna.

 

MEK students looking for a B.Sc. Project should contact René Fléron for further details.
