    Aykut Kutlu worked on the Design and Development project which is a satellite actuator development project. In this project, He worked on the SIL and HIL tests (performed on attitude control test setup), in the content of design attitude determination and control system, preparing the algorithms and implement them in real-time environment and verifying them, acquiring the performance results, etc using Matlab/Simulink. 

    2005 – 2007:   Pre-contractual phases for the potential project

    During this period Aykut Kutlu worked on the Design and analysis duties in order to provide some design infrastructure that will be used for pre-contractual studies of the potential projects (DÖNENCE and GÖKTÜRK-2 projects were potential projects in these years). Especially the studies related to the Attitude Determination and Control subsystem has been performed. For thruster subsystem, delta_V budget computations also have been done by preparing some tools using Matlab in this period of work.

    2005: Training Aircraft Project

    During this period Aykut Kutlu worked on the Performance analyses of the aircraft. In this job, performance analyzing code is prepared by using FORTRAN. All the take-off, landing, cruise and maneuvers performance computations and analyses were done by the special in house code and algorithms prepared by Aykut Kutlu in Fortran (F90), and the visualization part is done with a simple GUI by using Visual Basic.

    Education History

    Present: PhD. in Aerospace Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Ankara/TURKEY

    Qualification Exam is passed; currently he is writing thesis, Thesis Title: “Orbit Design for Formation Flying LEO Spacecrafts and Design formation scheme for satellites on Sun-Earth Collinear Libration Points”.  PhD study continues on Aerospace Engineering at the Middle East Technical University (METU Ankara/ TURKEY) since 2009. In 2012, Doctorate Qualification Examination was passed successfully, now the thesis writing phase is on. (In the years 2010-2012, he has to give a break to PhD due to a task assignment performed at France). PhD Thesis, it is related directly to the orbital mechanics, flight dynamics, attitude and orbit determination and control: Satellite Formation Flights. All codes for the PhD study are generated using MATLAB and Simulink.

    05/2014– 05/2016: Development of an Attitude Control Test Setup, Istanbul Technical University:
