Dynamics of 3rd Body effects in Highly Elliptic and Critically Inclined Orbits

Satellite coverage of the Arctic region is becoming more and more important as there has been an increase in the demand for communications and Earth observation duties, which cannot be performed by geostationary satellites. Canada, in particular, has a vested interest in increasing the ability for remote settlements in the north to communicate with the […]

Control of Rotor Blade Sailing Phenomenon (BSP)

With some modification the actuator placement optimization method described earlier can be applied to determine an optimized configuration/placement to integrate MFCs into active rotor blades. A feasibility study of open-loop control with integral active twist actuation which included different strategies for controlling BSP, recently concluded by Professor Afagh and his research group, has shown remarkable […]
