The PhD position entitled “N-Satellite Formation-Flying for Interferometry Applications in Low Earth Orbits” is now open at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of Politecnico di Milano.
The use of multiple satellites flying in close formation in low Earth orbits allows setting-up virtual architectures that may enable several interferometry applications of interest for Earth observation and monitoring. The practical realisation of such typology of missions requires advanced solutions for the relative Guidance Navigation and Control (GNC) systems of the satellites composing the formation, given the requirements posed by the scientific instruments as well as the mission operational constraints.
