Satellite Orbits: Numerical Simulation with Matlab

June 10th - 27th, 2019
Versione stampabile

Venue: Polo F. Ferrari 2, via Sommarive 9 - Trento, h. 10:00 – 12:00

John W. Conklin, University of Florida

Give the students basic knowledge about spacecraft flight dynamics and navigation, position and attitude control, related instrument requirements and performance. Provide laboratory activity for the application of the knowledge to simulated cases of study, train students to present and discuss the results.

Classroom lectures, Matlab simulations in laboratory.

Students will be able to design satellite orbits, build
and validate mathematical models for their numerical
