Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

A wide range of technologies and methodologies for space systems engineering are currently being developed at the University of Glasgow. Much of the work is centred on mission analysis and trajectory optimisation, complemented by research activities in autonomous and multi-agent systems. This paper will summarise these activities to provide a broad overview of the current research interests of the Space Advanced Research Team (SpaceART). It will be seen that although 4 much of the work is mission driven and focussed oil possible future applications, some activities represent basic research in space systems engineering.
