The research activity focuses on the development of attitude and orbit control systems (AOCS). Special attention is paid to electric propulsion systems and the associated technological constraints, which make the control problem particularly challenging. Additionally, guidance and navigation systems, based on advanced estimation and filtering techniques, are also investigated. A high-accuracy modelling and simulation software has been developed for mission analysis.
