About this course:

Learn how to design a spacecraft or satellite attitude control system by exploring real spacecraft design and understanding modern practical design and analysis methods.

Although designed for practitioners, this course highlights the fundamental theory behind the design methods by presenting in detail, numerous modern real-life spacecraft attitude control design examples, such as Spaceway and Cassini, are illustrated in detail using the latest tools developed in MATLAB/SIMULINK.

Using the design methodologies and tools, participants learn to model spacecraft dynamics in detail, design basic spacecraft attitude control systems, and perform trade-off study on approaches, hardware, and performance requirements.
