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.
