Title of project: AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT DISTRIBUTED TASKS ALLOCATION
Funding agency (Optional): DoD
Description: Autonomous distributed tasks
allocation (spacecraft that operate as observers may switch to debris
towing assets and vice versa, due to limited resources onboard, allowing
only a few functionalities at any given time on a single platform) will
become critical for future distributed spacecraft operations. This
project will lay down the foundations to solve several scenarios where
small units with limited capabilities can perform complex missions
thanks to autonomous tasks sharing and re-allocation.
Knowledge and skills needed: Mechanics foundations, Astrodynamics, Control Theory, Matlab, Simulink, STK.
