  1. QUEST Kyushu-U.S. Experimental Satellite Tether

  2. KU(TDS, SEM, GS, Managing) Prof. Tetsuo Yasaka Hiroshi Hirayama Hiroshi Yano WU(Mother-”Akoya”, Structure) Prof. Michael Swartout Patrick McNally John Brueck SCU(Daughter-”Pearl”, C&DH) Prof. Christopher Kitts Robert Watson UT(Communication, GS) Prof. Shinichi Nakasuka Masaki Nagai Participating Universities & Project managers

  3. Objectives • Engineering Missions • Demonstration of tether deployment • Formation flight • Inter-satellite communication • Scientific Missions • Magnetometers – offered by SERC in KU

  4. Scenario • USSS2002 • BBM • PM • USSS2003 • FM • Environmental Test • 2004-2005 • Launch

  5. Collaboration plan • Communication • Via Internet • Mail (quest-ml@ssdl.aero.kyushu-u.ac.jp) • NetMeeting (monthly) • Exchange design information(Data filing system in WU) • Exchange prototype models for mechanical interfacing • KU can deliver tether systems to WU • WU can deliver top panel of Akoya to KU

  6. Jan. 2003 KU send prototype of tether systems to WU. WU integrate it to Akoya Feb.-Mar. 2003 WU send back the integrated tether systems and top panel of Akoya KU conduct ejection test with Pearl and Akoya April 2003 UT sends WU TX and RX BBM internet integration between WU and SCU July 2003 BBM integration test between WU and KU Nov. 2003 Bring each PM to USSS Timeline

  7. Budget • Each University covers its travel and subsystem costs • We are assuming the launch is sponsored
