The project I took part into has been the design of an autonomous reusable space transportation system capable of transferring astronauts to the ISS, service and deliver satellites and function as temporary satellite for up to 2 years.During this project I was responsible for the Structural Installation of the Reaction Control System in the Forward Fuselage. At high altitudes, where there is insufficient dynamic pressure to utilise aerodynamic control surfaces, spacecrafts need a system (RCS) to control both the position (x, y and z) and the orientation (pitch, roll and yaw).
