What is the best technique to propagate uncertainties of high-altitude, high area-to-mass ratio satellites? Find out the answer in the latest open access paper of PhD candidate Pan Sun, with Camilla Colombo, Mirko Trisolini, and Shuang Li.
How to enhance end-of-life deorbiting by using orbit perturbations? Check this out in the Open Access paper by Simeng Huang, Camilla Colombo, Elisa Maria Alessi, Yang Wang and Zhili Hou
Improving the model of b-plane circles and using it for flyby design: check out the new Open Access paper by Alessandro Masat, Matteo Romano and Camilla Colombo. Find the paper here.
Twice as fast and ten times more precise planetary protection compliance analysis? KS variables ensure so, learn how in the new Open Access paper by Alessandro Masat, Matteo Romano and Camilla Colombo. See the paper here.
New advances in flybys and trajectory design open access! Alessandro Masat and Camilla Colombo introduce the use of the b-plane and the Picard-Chebyshev scheme to efficiently surf complex and chaotic orbital perturbations.
