Development of a Reachability Analysis Algorithm for Space Applications
  • Computation of reachable sets for Moon landers using trajectory optimization.
  • Discretization of the optimal control problem into a nonlinear programming problem using pseudo-spectral methods.
  • Development of a modified Apollo-era based guidance algorithm for attainable area computation.
  • An analysis on the change of the maximum reachable region of a lunar lander by unscented transformation incorporating uncertainties.
