The team has made a lot of improvements this year, and there is still more to come. This presentation will give a summary of the upgrades the team made on last...Read more
American, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and European Astronauts all walk into a Cave...
No punchline: that's an actual European Space Agency mission, completed this year underground in Italy! Andrea will present updates from the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) including post...Read more
This presentation gives an overview of the attitude determination and control system (ADCS) of the EC0 cubesat due to launch in December this year as part of the QB50 mission. EC0's ADCS system comprises UNSW developed hardware and software as well as commercial off the shelf hardware which has...Read more
Moving near an asteroid is dangerous, especially when you don't want to break your half billion dollar spacecraft. Using a swarm of small and cheap nanosats removes the pressure of keeping a single spacecraft operating nominally, but they don't have the same capabilities. This talk will cover...Read more
This presentation gives a brief overview on Multi-GNSS services for missions operating between MEO and GEO altitudes. Terrestrial and space-borne receivers at low altitude (up to 3000 km) enjoy seamlessly available GNSS services. However, receivers at higher altitudes operating between Medium...Read more
Computationally Efficient Unscented Kalman Filtering Techniques for Launch Vehicle Navigation using a Space-borne GPS Receiver
The Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is a well-established technique for position and velocity estimation. However, the performance of the EKF degrades...Read more
