Feb 2013 – Nov 2013 “Design and Attitude Control of a Satellite with Variable Geometry”, Grade: 18/20
The possibility of a satellite achieving attitude control by varying its geometry in a prescribed way was explored. The dynamics of variable geometry bodies were derived, several satellite models with changing configuration capability were envisioned and an application for this control method was obtained: configuration function for a synchronous rotation of a satellite in an elliptic orbit.
