Description of Research:

Directed by Professor V. L. Coverstone. Computational tools are designed and developed to optimize and visualize spacecraft trajectories. Modeling and simulating interplanetary low-thrust solar-electric and solar sailing missions as well as spacecraft attitude maneuvers are of current interest. The laboratory consists of several workstations and PC's.
