Optimizing an Infrared Camera for Observing Atmospheric Gravity Waves from a CubeSat Platform
The NTNU Test Satellite (NUTS) is a double CubeSat deigned by master students at NTNU. The goal of the project is to image atmospheric gravity waves in the OH airglow layer. This thesis explores the theory behind gravity waves and discuss the design of an infrared camera as a payload onboard. Different requirement based on scientific and mechanical limitations are presented. Based on this a suitable infrared camera is presented.
