1. Kelly, Patrick W. Control of Geostationary Satellite Orbits Using Solar Radiation Pressure.

Degree: MS, Aerospace Engineering - Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 2016, University of Florida

Solar radiation pressure (SRP) is the largest non-gravitational perturbation at geostationary orbit (GEO). Through deliberate changes in a satellite's orientation throughout orbit, the magnitudes of the accelerations caused by solar radiation pressure can provide a means of propulsion. These orientations can be used to create new orbits for a satellite, without the use of thrusters. This study examines methods to perform deorbiting maneuvers and methods to characterize a satellite's orbit by targeting specific orbital elements using solar radiation pressure. Targeting a desired semi-major axis, eccentricity, or inclination will be addressed specifically, leading to possible satellite servicing applications with minimal propellant dependency. For example, using a solar sailing satellite, it is possible to tow space debris from the GEO belt for placement above the graveyard belt threshold, then return the solar sailing satellite for rendezvous with another undesirable spacecraft in the GEO belt. These findings are all plausible for near future application using the current state of the art in solar sailing technology. ( en ) Advisors/Committee Members: BEVILACQUA,RICCARDO (committee chair).

2. Pachikara, Abraham J. Control and Trajectory Design of a Highly Flexible Air Vehicle with a Distributed Sensing Architecture.

Degree: PhD, Aerospace Engineering - Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 2016, University of Florida

Next generational aircraft are becoming very flexible due to efforts to reduce weight and increase aerodynamic efficiency. As a result, flight control systems and trajectories that were designed with traditional rigid body assumptions may no longer become valid. When an aircraft becomes more flexible, the shape of the aircraft can deform significantly due to the aeroservoelastic dynamics. No longer are few sensors located at the CG and elsewhere will be enough to maximize performance. Instead, a full suite of sensors will be needed all throughout the aircraft to accurately measure the complete aerodynamic distribution and dynamics.

3. Guglielmo, David C. Spatio-Temporal Atmospheric Density Forecasting for Drag-Based Propellant-less Spacecraft Maneuvering Theory and Mission Design.

Degree: PhD, Aerospace Engineering - Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 2015, University of Florida

Spacecraft maneuver in Low Earth Orbit for a variety of reasons. They may perform in-orbit maintenance, assume a formation, or perform a rendezvous. Using atmospheric drag as a control force, it is possible to create rendezvous maneuvers between two spacecraft without the use of propellant, given accurate forecasting of atmospheric density.
