ACHIEVED – Assembly for Concepts in Human Interplanetary Exploration with Various Extraterrestrial Designations

As space agencies and private space companies seek new mission design concepts that challenge and advance our technological and/or scientific knowledge, our research team strives to support the space community with original and innovative mission designs.

How do we do this ?

Stemming out of ACHIEVED, we have created two year-long mission design team : 

  • HOPE – High-technology Operations for Planetary Exploration 

 

Examining a deep space CubeSat-based mission that provides flexibility, affordability, and lower risk than traditional single-spacecraft missions. The outcome is a technology demonstration mission to study Uranus and its moons with a main orbiter carrying several CubeSat as its payload.

  • RAISE – Research Assembly for Innovative projects in Space Exploration 

Investigating an innovative approach to a Mercury sample return mission. The science collected from this mission will bring us closer to understanding how Mercury formed and potentially how our own Moon formed.

Interested? Meet us!

We are an international and interdisciplinary team of 20 students and young professionals who are preparing the young generation to design space exploration missions while supporting diversity and multidisciplinarity.

You can contact the project coordinators : Bram de Winter ([email protected]) or Marcos Rojas ([email protected])

Exploration can’t be ACHIEVED without curiosity.

ROADMAP: SC-1 Planetary Science Committee (PSC)

The Planetary Science Committee will be composed of young professionals with affiliation for planetary sciences. The working committee will work closely with other committees and will provide the SEPG Working Group with input based on planetary science needs in future years.

The committee’s activities shall include all areas (technical, scientific and programmatic) of planetary sciences and in particular serve as a forum for interaction between members with various study backgrounds aiming to get involved in the preparation and the future development of new science explorations missions. Therefore, the PSC action will cover various aspects of planetary sciences to provide an complete overview of the needs of the scientific community for the next generation of exploration missions. Exchange of knowledge between multidisciplinary backgrounds is encouraged with an emphasis on education of participants.

The main aims of the committee will be to:

  • Provide inputs on the roadmap for the needs of the scientific community.
  • Act as point of contact for planetary sciences projects in SEPG and host planetary science projects in SEPG.
  • Improve connections between members of the SEPG that are interested in planetary sciences.
  • Increase the involvement of the scientific community in work performed in SGAC/SEPG

SC-4 Engineering & Robotics Committee (E&R)


The Engineering & Robotics Committee will be composed of young professionals with affiliation and interests towards the future of Engineering and Robotics. The working committee will work closely together with other committees and will enable the SEPG Working Group to realize our missions based on the technologies of the future. The committee’s activities shall include all areas (technical, scientific and programmatic) of Space Engineering and Robotics and in particular serve as a forum for interaction between members with various backgrounds aiming to get involved in the preparation and the future development of new explorations missions.

Therefore, the E&R action will cover various aspects of space engineering to provide a complete overview of the needs of the scientific community for the next generation of exploration missions. Exchange of knowledge between multidisciplinary backgrounds is encouraged with an emphasis on education of participants.


The main aims of the committee will be to:


Provide inputs on the SEPG roadmap for the needs of the scientific community.
Act as point of contact for Engineering & Robotics projects and host relevant science projects in SEPG.
Improve connections between members of the SEPG that are interested in the technical aspect of Space Engineering.
Increase the involvement of the scientific community in work performed in SGAC/SEPG.

The technical aims of the committee will be to:


Create long-term goals and descriptions that are relevant to the entire SEPG Roadmap.
– Literature review, engineering and mission analysis through softwares or data analytics skills.
Approaching professionals to gather information and ideas for how future technologies will impact those missions.
