Optimal trajectories for the aeroassisted flight experiment
The aeroassisted flight experiment (AFE) is to simulate a transfer from a geosynchronous Earth orbit (GEO) to a low Earth orbit (LEO). Specifically, the AFE spacecraft is released from the Space Shuttle and is accelerated ...
Design against resonance
A method for maximizing the distance from the spectrum of an analytic, symmetric matrix with distinct eigenvalues from a given frequency is proposed. The method models the classical approach from optimization of finding ...
