All satellite telemetry transmitters use quartz crystals to synthesize their downlink frequency. Higher downlink frequency designs have evolved from lower frequency designs. Design techniques typically simply increase the crystal frequency multiplier, therefore crystal frequency instability is magnified in higher frequency designs. At some point, the transmit frequency stability will start to degrade the telemetry reception performance. This paper describes the search for appropriate measurements, metrics, impact assessment, and simulation to characterize and screen for acceptable performance. © 2016 IEEE.

A space hotel with all the comforts of home including artificial gravity equal to that at the surface of Earth is analyzed and architected. Guests would undertake safaris on smaller spacecraft to enjoy microgravity activities but return to the hotel for dining, sleeping, and attending to other personal needs. The optimal spin characteristics of the hotel are shown to require a specific range of altitude and to favor an equatorial orbit. Implications of the orbital hotel for the future colonization of space are presented at the conclusion.

The usefulness of lunar materials for space missions has been discussed for many years and was featured in a speech in 2004 by President George W. Bush. While the focus of technical discussion has been on systems involving catapults or 'mass drivers' to inject materials into lunar orbit from the surface of the moon, this paper discusses a propulsive concept involving a simpler architecture and potentially lower cost both in terms of initial investment and recurring operation. The cargo would be samples from all over the moon both for scientific investigation and to supply spacecraft in Earth orbit and deep space.
