Space Systems 1
Space Systems I, 6 CFU, 1st semester.
The course gives an overview of current methods in mission analysis and design for space systems. The main ideas of dynamical systems and optimal control theories enabling derivation of non linear astrodynamics solutions are introduced. The general n-body dynamics are treated by decoupling the problem in simplified models spanning from the classical patched conic approach to perturbation techniques. Mainly, restricted three body models, with their inherent features, are presented together with optimization principles of non-Keplerian low thrust trajectories. Practical examples are discussed with reference to real mission applications.
