研究活動

At the Nakasuka Laboratory (Intelligent Space Systems Laboratory), we are conducting research aiming at the realization of "intelligent" space systems.

-Spacecraft control problems
rendezvous-docking control, retrieval of non-cooperative tumbling objects, formation flight, space robotics
-Spacecraft autonomy and intelligent systems
scheduling of space activities, model-based fault diagnosis system, spacecraft design support system
-Novel space systems
large membrane structure (furoshiki satellite), NCSS (Non Critical Spacecraft System)

衛星プロジェクト

We are also developping student-led small satellite projects. See here for more information.
