Space, satellites, space vehicules - 2019

Orbital dynamics and control of space vehicles

OBJECTIVE :

The objectives of this course are to provide the attendees with a basic knowledge on orbital dynamics and control of satellites. It covers the attitude and orbit movement of satellites, their evolution in the Space environment, their determination and control. The methods are applied on mission analysis and operations for satellites orbiting around the Earth. The lectures are illustrated with team workshops which put into practice the concepts and a visit of a command and control centre (if possible).

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

1 week including workshops (5 days / 32 hours):

  • 16 lectures (duration 1.5 hour)
  • 5 hours devoted to workshops
  • 1 visit
