Guidance and Control

The research in guidance and control at San Diego State University aim at developing theory, methods, and advanced algorithms that can autonomously plan and optimize trajectories, guide and execute the necessary menuvers to accomplish the mission objectives of an aerospace vehicle. The applications include both air and space vehicles, The mission envelope encompasses ascent, on-orbit, and entry, and planetary landing. A current focus is optimal aerocapture guidance and integrated entry and powered landing guidance for pin-point entry and landing of future human Mars missions.
