Action POC
Review Space Systems courses for material overlap. Space
Systems courses need periodic review to ensure that there is no
inadvertent overlap of material covered in the courses.
Space Systems
Program Officer
Although this is an ongoing process the
courses called out in exit surveys have
been reviewed by the respective instructors
for duplication.
Increase coverage of the Joint Use of Space. How data from
space assets is disseminated has been undergoing changes.
Course material that is in line with the current dissemination
processes needs to be inserted in the curriculum.
Space Systems
Program Officer
SS3051 has been, and continues to be,
revised over the past two years to include
Joint Space concepts.
Explore possibility of a Navy Command funding a yearly cohort of
USN students for the Master of Space Systems Operations
Distance Learning Degree. Currently there is significant interest
from Naval personnel in pursuing the Space Distance Learning
Degree but funding issues have prevented most from pursuing
this academic option.
OPNAV N6;
NETWARCOM;
Space Systems
Program Officer
NPS has changed their DL funding policy.
Navy students are no longer required to be
command funded, they are funded by the
school.
Provide the Educational Skills Requirements (ESR) that the
courses CC3000, IW3101, IS3502 fulfill to NETWARCOM and
OPNAV N6 for their review.

Objective: 1) To contribute to the education of the NPS student-officers of the Space Engineering,
Space Ops and Mech. Eng. curricula.
2) To invent new solutions and improve existing ones regarding both hardware and
software technologies for spacecraft proximity maneuvering and operations.
Challenges: Achieve robust autonomous relative Guidance, Navigation and Control of an
aggregate of possibly different spacecraft with realistic limitations in sensors, actuators,
and on-board computers. Enable proximity operations to be conducted by
nanosatellites.
Funding: Nine Ms theses and two PhD Theses completed. Three more ongoing. Funding provided
by AFRL in FY09. Additional funding sought. Filed a patent on a novel docking interface
for small spacecraft.
Objective: The objective of this research is to develop key technologies for large space mirrors to
improve the capability of future imaging spacecraft to provide high resolution, persistent
surveillance.
Challenges: Extremely fine surface control of flexible mirrors, Vibration isolation and jitter control,
Deployable mirror segment alignment, Wavefront sensing and correction, Prevention of
surface control performance degradation due to control-structure interaction , Thermal
distortion correction
Funding: Funding provided by NRO. NPS participated in the Segmented Mirror Demonstrator
(SMD), Segmented Mirror Testbed (SMT), and Advanced Mirror Development (AMD)
projects in collaboration with NRO, Lockheed Martin, ITT, and NRL.
Objective: Continue development of multi-level fusion environment
Evaluate contributions of additional data sources to MASTER Tracks, Radar/Acoustics
Develop Track Model to protect sources and methods
Support work on multi-level security

Development
PI:
Prof. T. R. Weatherford
Objective: To develop initial techniques that converts transistor’s electrical/ thermal/ radiation
energy to material movement to show electrical RF or power degradation.
Challenges: Implementation with two present competing Industry tools (NPS/Silvaco,
AFIT/Synopsis) within their framework, Techniques to revert between electrical/thermal
modeling and process modeling tools at specified time intervals, Transition new
findings on electronic failure mechanisms.
Funding:
Title: NPS CubeSat Launcher

Prof. James Newman
Related funding provided by AFRL PACE program, ONR ESO, NAVSEA. 4 pubs, 8+
thesis on reliability of RF/power device topic. On-going collaborations with
AFOSR/ONR Electronic Reliability MURIs (MIT, U-FL,UCSB, NCSU, OSU). Part of TriService team (ARL/NRL/AFRL) to transition MURI findings.
Objective: High capacity launch of CubeSats utilizing single ESPA-class payload. Hands-on
education of NPS officer students; foster innovation and interest in STEM in university
students in support of future aerospace workforce development.
Challenges: Low frequency modes and ensuring fastener integrity during vibration testing.
Funding: Funding provided by NRO AS&T (directly and from the NSF) and California Space
Education Workforce Institute (CSEWI) . On-going collaborations with CalPoly,
Aerospace Corp, Ecliptic Enterprises, and ULA.
Objective: 1) To contribute to the education of the NPS student-officers of the Space Engineering
and Space Ops curricula.
2) To design, integrate, and test on-orbit one agile nanosatellite able to take
panchromatic images, at 3-to-4m GSD from 500 Km, and transmit them back to the
field.
Challenges: Achieve, for the first time on a nanosatellite, high three-axis pointing accuracy, high
slewing agility, and high data rates. Keep low the cost per unit, in order to make
possible the acquisition of a constellation of tenths of spacecraft
Funding: Three MS theses completed. Six more ongoing. Funding provided by NRO in FY08 and
FY09. Additional funding sought. Collaboration with Prof. Jim Newman (TINYSCOPE

US miscalculates China military growth: study
“The United States has underestimated the growth of China's
military as policymakers have taken public statements at face
value or failed to understand Beijing's thinking, a study said
Thursday…
US analysis could have improved if more experts read
Chinese or even looked at open publications such as
academic technical journals, it said.”

1. Joint Strategy and Policy
a. Officers develop a graduate-level ability to think strategically,
critically analyze past military campaigns, and apply historical
lessons to future joint and combined operations, in order to discern
the relationship between a nation's policies and goals and the ways
military power may be used to achieve them. This is fulfilled by
completion of the first of the Naval War College course series
leading to Service Intermediate-level Professional Military
Education (PME) and Phase I Joint PME credit.
b. Officers gain an understanding of current Navy and USMC doctrine
(e.g., Sea Power 21, Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare).

2. Orbital Mechanics and Space Environment
d. Graduates will examine the various orbital perturbations, including
those due to non-spherical earth and due to atmospheric drag, and
interpret their effects.
f. Graduates will design and optimize mission orbits through the
analysis of common performance measures such as access,
coverage, and revisit; and will employ appropriate tools to conduct
these analyses.
g. Graduates will examine the physical behavior of the upper
atmosphere, ionosphere and space environment under the
influence of both natural and artificial phenomena such as solar
activity, geomagnetic and magnetospheric effects, and man-made
disturbances.

planned launch systems, and characterize the issues associated
with integrating a spacecraft with a launch vehicle, to include the
effects of launch environment.
j. Graduates will perform a trade-off analysis in the selection of a
launch vehicle based on mission requirements, performance and
design constraints, and business issues involved (e.g., pricing,
insurance, policy).

k. Graduates will apply the principles of systems engineering to a
Joint / National Security space project from the needs assessment
phase to the final operations cycle.
l. Graduates will examine the application of systems engineering and
mission assurance processes in ensuring the integrity,
workmanship, and performance of a space system. They will
distinguish typical spacecraft testing including electromagnetic
compatibility tests, vibration and thermal tests, functional tests,
deployment tests, alignment tests, mass properties determination,
and final system-level tests.
