Constrained optimisation of preliminary spacecraft configurations under the design-for-demise paradigm

A new journal article by Mirko Trisolini and Camilla Colombo of the COMPASS team, in collaboration with Prof. Hugh Lewis of the University of Southampton, is available at the Journal of Space Safety Engineering.  The article explores the application of multi-objective optimisation to improve the application of design-for-demise techniques since the early stages of mission design.
