Samara State Technical Univrsity
University of Bologna, Italy
The session is devoted to research, design and implementation of guidance, navigation, control (GNC) systems for satellites, space flying robots and various aerospace vehicles. New methods and facilities for the ground and flight testing and adjustment of the GNC aerospace systems, including contemporary methods for passive and active fault-tolerant control, are welcomed. The participation of aerospace industry representatives is welcomed and encouraged. For the session some papers will be presented by members of the IFAC (http://www.ifac-control.org/ ) Technical Committee on Aerospace.
Topics for this Special Session include:
- Terrestrial and in-flight verification of onboard devices and instrumental clusters for aerospace GNC systems;
- In-flight adjustment of the aerospace GNC and communication systems;
- New methods and facilities for testing of the aerospace GNC systems, including modern methods for the passive and active fault tolerant control;
- Software for terrestrial and in-flight identification, verification and tuning of the aerospace GNC and communication systems.
