The Federation of Hangates of Athara Magarat

With Covonant and Ipland gone and Keomora inactive, I kinda feel it is my fault as a founder member that the Cooperative Union and the Coalition of Six are defunct.

I do not know about the C6 (way too many military alliances in TWI) but the Cooperative Union coukd be done and made gret again.

Ainslie, Dragao do Mar and Noronica, any plans to revive the CU?

I confess firstly that I am not informed enough to put substance behind what I am about to say; warning is not the same as foreknowledge. A variety of circumstances and reports can exist that are mutually contradictory and unintelligible; it is easy after an event to find the particular report or warning that proved right after the event has occurred.

I do not know to what extent that applied here.

The IslesNet Project


The IslesNet is an international network of CubeSats for multi-point, in-situ measurements in the lower thermosphere and re-entry research. This Isles-wide project is jointly managed by the University of Arun Valley (UAV) and University for Sinja (SU) in Athara Magarat. Initially, the Space Administration of Athara Magarat (SAAM) wanted the project to involve only Cooperative Union (CU) nations but the universities managed to convince the Magarati government to consider universities from all Isles nations into the international program.

?? CubeSats have been launched into orbit as part of this project.

Mission Objectives


The IslesNet project demonstrates the possibility of launching a network of CubeSats built by universities all over the Isles to perform first-class science in the largely unexplored lower thermosphere.

Space agencies are not pursuing a multi-spacecraft network for in-situ measurements in the lower thermosphere because the cost of a network of satellites built to industrial standards would be extremely high and not justifiable in view of the limited orbital lifetime. No atmospheric network mission for in-situ measurements has been carried out in the past or is planned for the future. A network of satellites for in-situ measurements in the lower thermosphere can only be realized by using very low-cost satellites; and CubeSats are the only realistic option.

Facilitating Access to Space


One of the main purposes of the IslesNet project is to achieve a sustained and affordable access to space for small scale research space missions and planetary exploration.

University of Arun Valley (UAV) and University for Sinja (SU), through the Athara Magarati government, have requested space flight capable nations in the Isles such as Alteran Republics, Corindia and Polar Svalbard to provide members of this ambitious project with launching services.

Through international cooperation in the IslesNet project, the dedicated launcher interface ??? (anyone has a cool name?) has been developed. The development of ??? is indeed offering a sustainable facilitation of the access to space, being qualified for a large number of vectors and being capable to be flown on many launches in the coming years.

The fact that the launch providing nations, the Isles industry and in general, the small satellites world, are benefiting of a technology developed within the IslesNet project is a remarkable achievement of this international program.

Scientific Research


Another objective of the IslesNet project is to carry out atmospheric research within the lower thermosphere, between 200 - 380 km altitude, which is the least explored layer of the atmosphere. To explore this region, atmospheric explorers were flown in the past in highly elliptical orbits (typically 200 km perigee, 3000 km apogee); they carried experiments for single-point, in-situ measurements but the time spent in the region of interest was only a few tens of minutes. By contrast, IslesNet will provide multi-point, in-situ measurements for a time period on the order of months, instead of minutes.

Nowadays, sounding rocket flights provide the only in-situ measurements. While they do explore the whole lower thermosphere, the time spent in this region is rather short (a few minutes). There are only a few flights per year and they only provide measurements along a single column. Powerful remote-sensing instruments on board Earth observation satellites in higher orbits (600800 km) receive the backscattered signals from atmospheric constituents at various altitudes. While this is an excellent tool for exploring the lower layers of the atmosphere up to about 100 km, it is not ideally suited for exploring the lower thermosphere because there the atmosphere is so rarefied that the return signal is weak. The same holds for remote-sensing observations from the ground with lidars and radars.

The multi-point, in-situ measurements of IslesNet will be complementary to the remote-sensing observations by the instruments on Earth observation satellites and the in-situ measurements by sounding rockets. All atmospheric models, and ultimately thousands of users of these models, will benefit from the measurements obtained by IslesNet in the lower thermosphere.

Three different types of science sensors, each of which is part of a science set, are used to fulfill the objective of carrying out atmospheric research in the lower thermosphere. These science sensors include the Ion-Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) as part of set 1, the Flux-Φ-Probe Experiment as part of set 2 and multi-Needle Langmuir Probe (m-NLP) as part of set 3.

Set 1

  • Ion-Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS)

  • Thermistors/thermocouples/RTD (TH)

Set 2

  • Flux-Φ-Probe Experiment (FIPEX)

  • Thermistors/thermocouples/RTD (TH)

Set 3

  • multi-Needle Langmuir Probe (m-NLP)

  • Thermistors/thermocouples/RTD (TH)

Most of the IslesNet CubeSats accommodate one of the three sets as their payload and will operate it for few months. Each of the three science sensors have their own set of requirements and interface specification which is specified in their respective Interface Control Document (ICD).

In-Orbit Demonstration (IOD)


The third objective of the IslesNet project is to serve as a platform for technology demonstration. A handful of IslesNet CubeSats, which are not accommodating the science sensors, are carrying their own payload, which are mainly technology that is to be qualified in space. Two of these CubeSats, Yeti-2 and Asha-3, are examples of IOD mission and exemplify the third objective of the Project.

Yeti-2

Yeti-2 is a 3U CubeSat, built by the University of Arun Valley (UAV); whose primary objective is the flight demonstration of an inflatable rigidisable sail structure. A key part of the Yeti-2 technology demonstration is the inflation and in-orbit rigidisation using Cool Gas Generators (CGGs). Yeti-2 consists of a 1 m long inflatable rigidisable cylindrical boom, which supports approximately a 3 m x 3 m tape-spring supported sail. It has been placed into a sun synchronous orbit at 505 km by a Polar Svalbard Space Administration's SHOR launcher on February 4, 2018.

Asha-3

Asha-3 is a triple unit CubeSat which is being built by University of Sinja (SU) for the purpose of studying the atmospheric re-entry process and the associated aerothermodynamic phenomena. It will incorporate an ablative Thermal Protection System (TPS) to the structure to protect the CubeSat from extreme heating during re-entry. Similarly, the side panels will be thermally insulated with appropriate TPS for a prolonged functionality of the subsystems. It will also demonstrate the use of a passive de-orbiting system and also the possibility of non-powered rendezvous.

Education


University of Arun Valley (UAV) and University for Sinja (SU), in association with the Space Administration of Athara Magarat (SAAM) and the Athara Magarati government, have invited universities around the Isles to join the project and send a satellite to space. Numerous proposals have then been received and the CubeSats been selected. As a consequence the IslesNet CubeSats have been designed and built by a great number of young engineers, supervised by experienced staff at their universities and guided by the IslesNet project through reviews and feedback. Those engineers did not only learn about space engineering in theory but will leave their universities with hands-on experience.

GAP STATEMENT

After completing my high school through A-Levels, I took IELTS preparatory classes for two months so that I could pursue my higher studies abroad. To take the IELTS exam, I needed my passport. Since my birthplace was not in Pokhara, I was required to return back to my village, get the documents signed and wait more than a month for the arrival of my passport. Even after I had my own passport, it cost me yet another month to set the date and take the IELTS test. The results arrived half a month later.

Since my first choice of destination was the United States of America, I decided to take the SAT exams as well. In order to take the SAT test, I had to take preparatory classes and again, I spent 2 months on them. Unfortunately for me, SAT preparatory classes are not easily available in my hometown of Pokhara. Hence, I had to land on Kathmandu to take the required classes and sit for SAT exam. In the mean time, I also had to prepare several documents necessary for immigration and had to run after government offices for at least three months.

I am also still a member of my high school's Interact Club and was involved in various social programs organised by them. For three days, me and my fellow Interactors became temporary assistants to the traffic policemen and worked alongside them in the busy streets of Ring Road. Our Interact Club also went on a week-long trek to the Annapurna Base Camp. Along the way, we asked foreigners and Nepalis alike with various questions and had fun time interacting with them. After returning to my hometown of Pokhara, I was also asked by my aunt to tutor her children in English and I agreed. Last month, I was involved in three day rally regarding culture awareness among the Gurung people and I participated in that function as well.

My gap year was, therefore, spent on taking various preparatory classes for international standard exams in order to apply for higher studies out of Nepal as well as other miscellaneous activities that I deemed were necessary for my own personal developement.

Raji Gurung

I wrote this months ago for my friend. I have written at least half a dozen Gap Statements and Statement of Purposes for my friends. But this is the only one that got accepted. Now she has this interview. Well, what do you say? If all goes well, she will be flying to Massachusetts next Monday.

Why US?

The United States is the world's only superpower and the largest economy. It is a cosmopolitan society and a land of opportunities; opportunities that are hard to find a developing nation like Nepal. Much of the cutting-edge innovations and inventions of the 21st Century are of American origin and I believe this is so due to the high standards of the American education system. The US, aptly named the Land of the Free, emphasizes much on one's individual progress from what I know. I believe that my time in the US will help shape me as an innovative individual with great experiences.

Why Biochemistry?

Biochemistry combined the fields of biology and chemistry into a combined study that is highly in demand in the modern age. I got interested in biochemistry at an early age after coming to understand that medicines cured the sick. Not just humans but also other animals after I saw my pet dog getting cured by the vet. The living body is an Internet of biochemical reactions and specific knowledge on this field is necessary to be involved there. In Nepal, biochemistry as a degree is offered only by the Tribhuwan University but even then, the subject material is not up to date with the rapid flow of modern information. In fact, the degree from TU is not accepted in other nations. Hence, I decided to apply in the University of Massachusetts to study biochemistry for I know that the degree I receive will be accepted globally and the course will prepare me for my future in this field.

What will you do after you graduate?

After I graduate from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in biochemistry, I will move back to my home country Nepal and work on field. Nepal is rich in natural resources but we do not possess knowledge and technology. Hence, I will be bringing the knowledge and technology from the US. Despite having plenty of rare medicinal herbs such as the Yarsa Gumba and the Sarpagandha, our government has been unable to create enough medicines to the extent that we have to export it from our neighboring Asian giants. I will start a pharma company of sorts that will employ local people and use their indigenous skills to find the herbs and then extract and refine those herbs into medicines using the knowledge and technology that I will be bringing home from the US. I seek to employ Nepali youths and inspire them while helping the economy all the while being eco-friendly.

There's a lot that can be worked on.

1: I think it's improbable that you have a domestically prodcuced stealth fighter in the first place, they are expensive to develop and expensive to build, it simply wouldn't work for an individual country (save a few exceptions) to build a 5th gen fighter independently.
2: Having an all stealth airforce would be incredibly draining on your air budget as 5the gen planes take a lot of money to maintain with the weaponry, the airframe, fuel, and avionics.

From 1400s to 1900s, this map remained kind of same as the hangates were forbidden to wage territorial wars against each other and instead had to rely on foreign alliances or colonies to gain power.

Arun Valley - The dragon boss of the family. Oldest hangate (formerly known as Mahakirat Hangate). Allied to the Noronnican Colonial Empire. They are the ones who introduced this foreign allies system. Led the Northern Magarati Alliance supporting Noronnican claims during the War of Khas-Kirati Succession (or Great Gael War or Third Central Argus War or War of the Contested Throne or whatever). Was also a colonial power that went around building port cities in Argus, Gael and Eterna Sea.

Second Tamsaling - The young tigers to the south. They claim to be the successors of all three Hangate of Tamsaling in Linaviar, Hangate of Sanggar in Samudera and the Asahans of Torom. Allied to the Osean Hangate of Tachil from Razzgrizz. Led the Southern Magarati Pact supporting Osean claims during the War of Khas-Kirati Succession.

Jaring - Used to be known as the Great Ipachi Hangate when they used to be great. They see the Osean Hangate of Tachil (Protector of Ipachis???) as their big brothers of sorts (Serbia-Russia stuff). They are the paper tiger among the hangates. Despite possessing the largest navy, most of their ships were trade vessels and their army was the weakest bar Chuli and Mun.

Chuli and Mun - The quite ones. Allied to one another despite being two Magarati hangates (they were the only ones allowed by the Mahang to do so). They are inland and have no interest in foreign politics or wars (except for trade).

Chatha - The other big gun from the south. A major colonizer that invaded Belle Ilse en Terre while always fighting against San Montagna or other hangates for one reason or another. Oddly enough, they would later ally with Belle Ilse en Terre, the San Montagnans and other Southern hangates in various future wars to come.

Marubhumi - The desert hangate. Frequently the punching bags of Chatha and Sinja as the two competed to install puppet hangs.

Sinja - The mercantile hangate. Overlords of New Totzka after the Portguese left it. Allied to Mitravarta.

Tiwe Sivn - Sometimes they were part of the Khas-Kirat Empire. Sometimes they are extension of the Holy Empire of Domanania. Had royal marriage with the Emperors of Domanania.

Akar - Sometimes they were part of the Khas-Kirat Empire. Sometimes they are extension of the Keomora Empire. Lots of complicated history.

Myagdi - Were part of Liba Hangate till the Tea War of 1821 after which a Noronnican-Mgar dynasty ruled Myagdi Hangate. Vassals of the Noronnican Colonial Empire.

Now, I need allies for these two hangates -

Second Tamuwan - They fielded the strongest army. However, they were Japan-like isolationists. Nonetheless, they do need a foreign ally if they are to keep with times as their rivals to the east and the south grow stronger through trade, diplomacy and colonization.

Liba Hangate - Means Hang's Resting. Ruled by guys who were named Liba Hang I, Liba Hang II and so on. Their rulers were noticeable for being Catholics first, then Nyssic Christians and Whindists later on. The major belligerent against the Noronnican Colonial Empire in the Tea War.
