Research topics 【 display / non-display

  • My research is mainly addressed on the dynamics model based attitude control of spacecrafts such as artificial satellites. Recently focusing on an attitude control method for balloon gondolas floating in the stratosphere. I aim to realize very precise attitude control of the gondola with understandings of forces effecting on the balloon envelope and the suspension between the envelope and the gondola.
