The Cyber Science for Green Space Infrastructure

Cyberscience defines the capacity to study and apply technologies for any purpose to solve an operational issue. Cyber means understanding the machines and their interfaces with societies. It mixes the complex interaction between social science and the matters of information theory to produce the right technology design to sustain the ground segment. As the life condition is going to change, the requirements appear to sustain the economic development within an ecosystem not fully compliant with the human body. And the matter information theory helps to provide the interaction existing in the environment to use it to sustain life by energy production. This cyber science is included in risk management to ensure the continuity of activity.

In the harsh context, it may be possible to create activities as demonstrated by the UAE model of a sustainable autonomous home in the desert in Dubai by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). The Sustainable Autonomous House model at MBRSC condenses moisture generated by cooling systems and implements management processes to produce water, which can be used for domestic tasks. This avoids traditional cooling with much energy. The temperature can be maintained between 22°C and 25°C with a system able to limit energy consumption through a cooling technology based on chilled water, thermal, and air insulation techniques in both directions as fresh air spreads across the house through mechanical ventilation.

The cyber design includes a management and control system which interacts with external heat and humidity fluctuation. Then, the energy available in the building is used for computers and communication technology. Moreover, the design includes a system of sensors for monitoring to follow the real-life behavior of the building. And the position and the orientation of the building use the climate data set of the place for the heating and cooling design. At last, the IT designer integrates the IT components in the calculation of energy consumption. The support of cyber science for this Space green infrastructure could follow the scenario where the location of sustainable building is chosen thanks to climate data sets from satellites mixing the sensors to study the potential of a place. Social science as an add-on should determine the economic potential linked with the infrastructure.

This passive infrastructure applied to Space infrastructure shows the capacity to build it in a complex independent urban power grid. And as some design components are not compliant anymore due to the climate conditions, being sustainable becomes a factor for the survival of the equipment. The model could be extended to other operational solutions and locations. For example, sand is the third more important resource used after Water and Air. And the sound of the sand as its humidity can be transformed into energy useful. The solution is re-taken by the waka tower principles, it means new forms of wells for people in the desert and beasts too. And artificial technology would give the requirements of a sustainable economy by providing much acknowledgment for the design of green Space infrastructure. This would avoid conflicts for access to resources and should push the innovation for Space life in orbit.
