Space Engineering 3 (AERO4701)

UNIT OF STUDY

This UoS aims to teach students the fundamental principles and methods of designing solutions to optimal estimation and control problems in space engineering applications. Students will apply learned techniques in optimal estimation and control theory to solving a wide range of different problems in engineering such as satellite orbit determination, satellite attitude determination, satellite positioning systems and remote sensing, optimal flight control, space shuttle re-entry and orbit transfers. Students will learn to recognize and appreciate the coupling between the different elements within an estimation and control task, from a systems-theoretic perspective.
