SPACECRAFT MOTION ESTIMATION FOR SPACE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

  • Title of project: SPACECRAFT MOTION ESTIMATION FOR SPACE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
  • Funding agency (Optional): DoD
  • Description: We seek to develop an enhanced capabilities to estimate nonlinear six-degree-of-freedom motion for spacecraft. Discontinuous and disrupted information can often come to the observer when a Resident Space Object is tracked and its state not always available due to orbital motion and/or due to ambiguities in the data.
  • Restrictions/Constraints: N/A
  • Knowledge and skills needed: Mechanics foundations, Astrodynamics, Control Theory, Matlab, Simulink, STK.
  • How to apply: Please send CV to Dr. Bevilacqu
