AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT DISTRIBUTED TASKS ALLOCATION

  • 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.
  • Restrictions/Constraints: N/A
  • Knowledge and skills needed: Mechanics foundations, Astrodynamics, Control Theory, Matlab, Simulink, STK.
