  Technique  

System Engineering

Model Based Systems Engineering


Type of project: Semester project / Association / Master thesis Participants: 2 - 4 students Section: STI, Minor in Space Tech or System Eng Description: In this project, you will join the CHESS mission at the end of Phase B, and you will contribute in bringing the mission to the next milestone, the PDR. To achieve this goal, you will need to focus on different tasks, mainly ICDs and Risk Analysis. The interface control documents (ICDs) are key to the CHESS mission. They define how the different components, subsystems of the satellite interact with each other to fulfill the mission’s objectives. The higher level architecture and requirements have been defined (mostly), we now need your help to dive into the specifics. The Risk Analysis identifies the possible failures of the system and it defines strategies to mitigate the causes and effects. Tasks:

  • Familiarize yourself with the mission. As a system engineer it is your responsibility to be very well informed and be able to answer most questions or find the answers.
  • Communicate with members from the other poles and universities to get information on the evolution of the subsystems development.
  • Decompose the problem into manageable tasks.
  • Make relevant design trade offs.
  • Adapt to the situation.
  • Be comfortable not knowing something and keep looking.
  • Update the model of the satellite on Valispace (software) when necessary.
  • Most importantly: be curious and enthusiastic about the work and the association! It will make it that much more fun.
Preferred background courses:
  • Space Technologies minor
  • Spacecraft Design and System Engineering
  • Fundamentals of Systems Engineering
  • Or similar knowledge, system engineering mentality




Testing engineer


Type of project: Semester project / Association Participants: 2 - 3 students Section: STI Description: We are starting to work on real satellite hardware. The Assembly Integration and Testing (AIT) phase is one of the most critical phases of any space project. It is not permitted to have issues with the system once the satellite is launched. A small error may result in a mission failure. The AIT allows to make sure that all the subsystems will work as expected in order to have a successful mission. We should have a first version of our On-Board-Computer, the Power system board and the ADCS module Tasks:

  • Understand the roles and functions of the different subsystems which were bought.
  • Create a list of test procedures which need to be performed on all newly bought subsystems.
  • Test each subsystem individually according to this list.
  • Work together with the Flight Software and OBC team.





Power System

Flight Software development


Type of project: Semester project / Association Participants: 2 students Section: IC, Syscom, MT, Elec, others Description: The subject of this project concerns the development of the satellite's flight software (Flight Software - FSW) whose role is to manage all the interactions between the on-board computer (OBC) and the various subsystems (described above), as well as communication with the ground. An important point is the development of automatic procedures for testing the satellite to ensure that it functions correctly whatever the conditions. Currently several HES-SO students (Master's thesis, semester work) are designing and developing the on-board computer, the FSW, the test methodologies and a simulator to evaluate the functioning of the satellite with sub-systems that are not yet available. Tasks:

  • The aim of the project is to take over the work done, improve it and make it fully functional with all the satellite's real subsystems. The notions of robustness and reliability are very important, test procedures according to the mission specifications must be set up and validated.
  • Part of this work will be done with technologies developed by NASA such as FPrime (https://github.com/nasa/fprime).
Preferred background and skills:
  • As this project involves a lot of people, the candidate will have to work in collaboration with engineers from other schools and other fields.
  • C / C++ / Python





Attitude Determination & Control System (ADCS)

成人式で着る振袖はいつごろから準備したらいいですか?


成人式の1~2年前からお選びいただけます。現在の傾向として、「早く決めないと無くなってしまう…」 と不安に思われ早くご来店される方が増えています。ですが、当店では多種多彩に品数豊富に取り揃えておりますのでお振袖が無くなることは絶対にありません! 早く決めることでのメリット・デメリットがあり、もしかすると好みが変わるかもしれない… 新作デザインが着たいという方へは二年前からの早いご予約はお勧めいたしません。 遠方の大学等へ行かれ、なかなか帰省して選びに行く時間が取れないかもしれないので心配という方へは早めのご準備をお勧めしています。




振袖はなぜレンタルがいいのですか?


ご自分で振袖を購入すると、ご自分でお着物のお手入れが必要になります。タンスに眠らせてカビが生えてしまった、柄に飽きてしまった・・・等。レンタルならそんな心配もありません。 そして、ダイワの成人式振袖レンタルの特典には二回目以降の振袖レンタルが成人式の時にレンタルした振袖と同価格までの振袖であればクリーニング料15,000円(税込16500円)のみで毎回違った色・柄をお楽しみいただけるすごい特典があります。期限はお嬢様が振袖を着れるまで有効です。親族や友人の結婚式への参列などに何回でもご利用頂け、とても人気があります。 (※1月中は除く。初回ご利用振袖と同価格のもの。※会員証の提示が必要。会員ご本人様に限ります。) 他にも当店の成人式会員様には他の用途のレンタル衣裳が特別価格でレンタルできる特典があります。是非ご利用下さい!
