- ASE 366K – Spacecraft Dynamics
This undergraduate class covers the fundamentals of spacecraft motion. This includes solutions to the two-body problem and works up to interplanetary mission design using simple patched conic solutions.
- ASE 366L – Applied Orbital Mechanics
Second-semester class in orbital mechanics. This course covers advanced topics in orbital mechanics such as time/coordinate systems, perturbations (conservative and non-conservative), Lambert’s problem, CW/Hills equations, and initial orbit determination.
- ASE 381P6 – Statistical Estimation Theory
This graduate level class covers the basics of estimation theory, which may be later applied to orbit determination, autonomous navigation, and other areas.
- ASE 396 – Orbital Debris
Covers elements of the orbital debris problem. The material includes general subjects related to orbital debris (e.g., mitigation requirements/strategies), and extends to topics specific to space situational awareness.
- ASE 396 – Fundamentals of Estimation
Same as ASE 381P6 above before being folded in to core graduate curriculum. This graduate level class covers the basics of estimation theory, which may be later applied to orbit determination, autonomous navigation, and other areas.
