Course Prefix: MAE   Course #: 425   Keywords: null  
  • MAE 425LEC Spacecraft Dynamics and Control
    Lecture

    Introduces the concepts of spacecraft orbital mechanics and attitude dynamics. Orbital mechanics is the study of the positional motion, while attitude dynamics describes the orientation of the spacecraft. Topics include: review of rotational kinematics and dynamics, orbital mechanics, gravity turn and trajectory optimization, orbit lifetimes, three-body problem, orbit perturbations, orbit determination, spacecraft dynamics, spinning and three-axis stabilized spacecraft, and attitude determination.

    Credits: 3
    Grading: Graded (GRD)
    Typically Offered: Spring
    Requisites: Pre-Requisite: MAE 345 and 376. Mechanical Or Aerospace Engineering Majors Only.
