AEM and Japan hold series of conferences related to nanosatellites
MEXICO - The Mexican Space Agency (AEM) stated that it continues to redouble its efforts to strengthen innovation and the construction of national capacities in the field of satellites in our country.
Salvador Landeros Ayala, Director General of the AEM, informed that in cooperation with Japan, the "Second Cycle of Nanosatellite Conferences (Earth Observation for Agriculture)" was inaugurated at the AEM's Regional Center for Space Development (CREDES) in the State of Mexico.
With specialists from the Kyushu Institute of Technology and Nihon University, College of Science and Technology, experts from the Faculty of Geography and CU-Atlacomulco of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEMEX) participated in this knowledge transfer.
Specialists from the Center for Aerospace Development of the National Polytechnic Institute (CDA-IPN), the Polytechnic University of Atlacomulco (UPA), the Technological University of Superior Studies of San Felipe del Progreso (TESSFP) and the Technological University of Superior Studies of Jocotitlán (TESJO) also participated.
Multiple technical topics were discussed, such as "TRIAD Algorithm for Nanosatellite orientation determination", "Applications of heuristics in the design of Nanosatellite controllers", and "Construction of a Pneumatic Bearing Platform for Nanosatellites", among others.
Landeros Ayala explained that, after a previous propaedeutic, the next phase of these conferences will be the second practical course of satellite integration for the training of specialists, with the use of the educational Nanosatellite-1U called "AtlaCom-1", property of the UAEMEX.
