Hundredstar Space Agency



HUNDREDSTAR SPACE AGENCY (HSA) was born through the merger of two institutions, namely the Institute of Space and Astronautical Affair (ISAA), and the National Aerospace Office (NAO). It was designated as a core performance agency to support the Hundredstarian government's overall aerospace development and utilization. HSA, therefore, can conduct integrated operations from basic research and development to utilization.

At the heart of The Protectorate of Hundredstar efforts to explore and benefit from space, we are responsible for ensuring that the Hundredstar retains and grows a strategic capability in space-based systems, technologies, science, and applications. We lead the nationís civil space program in order to win sustainable economic growth, secure new scientific knowledge and provide benefit to all citizens.

Leloux Launch Vehicle

Leloux Launch Vehicle
The Leloux Launch Vehicle is Hundredstar's new flagship rocket aiming at achieving high flexibility, high reliability, and high cost performance. Its maiden flight is set for 2020. Leloux will offer several lineups by selection of two types of fairings [LF-I or LF-II build by Litex Heavy Industries Pve Ltd, a subsidiary of Coe Industries www.coe-ind.com], two or three first-stage engines (using new BTJVC-1008.9 Liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engine build by Bison-Thamrov JV Consortium), and zero, or two solid rocket boosters ( Heliux Space-2 polybutadiene composite solid propellant boosters build by GACO- Heliux Industries) to deal with various payload sizes and orbits. The Penetrators II upper (second) stage is powered by one or two BTJVC-1008.6 Liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engine. Its launch capability to the geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) will be the highest ever, exceeding that of the existing XLS Siculus series Launch Vehicles.

Leloux is under development to be a successor to XLS Siculus series so that Hundredstar can maintain its autonomous access to space to launch satellites and probes including important missions for the government. We are eager to launch commercial satellites every year as well. HSA and its prime contractor, GACO- Heliux Industries (GHI), and other related companies are all hands on deck from the development phase to leverage their experiences to renovate the whole system for producing a low cost, flexible and reliable rocket.

The center consists of the Research and Administration Building, the Space Operationís Center Building, and the Experiment Facility Building, where tests are performed for basic development and verification of onboard instruments for launch vehicles and satellites. SSGC Space Operationís Center is the site of mission control for virtually all HSA piloted space flights. SSGC officials are responsible for selecting and training astronauts, planning and directing space missions, and determining the future course of HSA's piloted space flight program.

Space Gateway Remote Sensing Center
Remote-sensing technologies enable us to observe the conditions of the Earth's environment from satellites. In order to establish and develop these technologies, which play a significant role today, the Space Gateway Remote Sensing Center (RSC) was founded in SSGC compound, Enfeld, Eastern Valley, Hundredstar.

The RSC, located in an area richly endowed with nature, is equipped with two gigantic parabolic antennas to receive data from satellites. The data is treated through instruments to change it into a form that can be easily handled by computers, then stored and managed at the RSC. Since the 2000s, it has been involved in the solar system exploration. Today RSC serves as the command center for interplanetary mission and also participates in various Ministry of Defense projects.

RSO has experienced specialists with direct involvement in space development to offer consultations to those who are interested in beginning business using space technology or to those who are willing to join the space industry. Its staff of scientist and engineers work solely on the development and operation of scientific satellites. Most of the space-based observatories studying the earth, sun, and the stars are controlled by RSO. The facility also houses the Xavier II Space Science Data Center [XIISSDC], which stores data collected by satellites.


Oscarius Bay State Observatory
Oscarius Bay State Observatory location is located at Oscarius Bay, Eastern Valley in North Hundredstar. It is built in a reserve forest area. The site was chosen due to its pristine night skies in a location free of light pollution with clear views to all horizons and is one of the best places in the northern Hundredstar to view the Milky Way.

Cleanbrook Tracking and Communications Station
The Cleanbrook Tracking and Communications Station was established at 28km west of Cape Army, Eastern Valley. The main role of the Station is to receive signals from satellites, monitor if satellites are maintaining their proper positions and attitudes (satellite tracking and control), collect functional status data of satellitesí onboard electronic devices, then send any received data to the Ravencrest Aerospace Center. In addition, commands are transmitted from the station to satellites, if necessary, to maintain and control them. Apart from the satellite tracking and control facility, there is a precision radar at the station to track a launch vehicle and receive telemetry signals transmitted from a launch vehicle for monitoring its flight status.
The Station is also equipped with radar (rocket telemeter antenna and precision radar antenna) to check the flight trajectories, status, and safety of rockets launched from the Prince Bronson Xavier Center (PBXC). The data received is immediately transmitted to the PBXC via a special communication link. Named for Hundredstar 2nd Minister of Education/ Youth & Science, Emmett Houston Cleanbrook.

Joey Vaughn Tracking and Communications Station
The Joey Vaughn Tracking and Communications Station [JVTCS] was established in Lancerbrook, Eastern Valley, in February, 1991, formerly known as Bigbear Tracking and Communications Station. The main role of this Station is to track and control satellites. After receiving telemetry from satellites, it checks their location, altitude, and instrument functions. It also sends commands to satellites as required, in order to maintain and control them. Apart from the 20-meter, 13-meter, 11-meters and 10-meter diameter parabolic antennas, JVTCS have a tracking and control facility, a power supply facility, and the Bigbear collimation tower (on Bigbear Mountain). JVTCS named for Hundredstar fourth Minister of Education, Youth & Science.

Prince Bronson Xavier Center
The Prince Bronson Xavier Center (PBXC), is the first rocket-launch complex in Hundredstar with a total area of about 9,700,000 square meters. Located in the Town of Rustyleaf, 61km east of Enfeld. On-site facilities include the HSA Launch Complex (HLC), a launch site for large-size rockets, Drywind Spacecraft Test and Assembly Buildings (DSTA), and the Spoonwick Spacecraft and Fairing Assembly Building (SSFA). Using those facilities, a series of operations are performed from assembling launch vehicles, maintenance, inspections, final checks of satellites, loading satellites onto launch vehicles, launches, and tracking launch vehicles after liftoff. The PBXC plays a pivotal role for satellite launches among Hundredstarís space development activities.

Claypillar Infrared Observatory
The top of Claypillar Mountain in Lightmason District is home to the Claypillar Infrared Observatory (CLIO), one of this country's most precise infrared telescopes. CLIO is a joint facility between University of Forestcloth and Hundredstar Space Agency. CLIO is located far from any population center, 48km southwest of Sulphurgate (a nearest town), and 90km northeast of Forestcloth. The advantages of being in such a remote area includes the low level of air and light pollution, which make for very clear observations allowing for the reception of faint and subtle signals from deep space.

Through an infrared telescope, astronomers can observe a host of objects that would be invisible, barely visible, or blocked from view in an optical telescope. The Observatory conducts command transmission operations to deep space probes and receives observation data from them as they fly closer to satellites, planets, comets, and the moon.


Space Tracking & Monitoring Vessel
MV Sulphurgate Wind was converted from cargo vessel, COSTAC Jay Straits, which was originally designed in February 2011, with construction begun in July 2013, and entered service in October 2014. Conversion was completed in August 2015, and the ship is capable of carrying a GACO H-4 helicopter. Powered by 9000 hp diesel engines, Sulphurgate Wind has an endurance of 100 days and could reach a speed of up to 20 kts, with a range of 18,000 nautical miles cruising at 18 kts.
