The Four Pillars of Our Research
The Stanford's Space Rendezvous Lab (SLAB) is built on four pillars of research which feed one another in closed loop to accomplish our mission. These pillars expose the students to the full spectrum of the developmental cycle of a space mission with a focus on fundamental research and algorithms related to multi-agent GN&C for distributed space systems.
Overview of Our Projects
Our work lies at the intersection of Astrodynamics, Guidance/Navigation/Control (GN&C), Environment Characterization and Decision Making to enable future Distributed Space Systems (DSS). These include but are not limited to: spacecraft formation-flying, rendezvous and docking, swarms, and fractionated space architectures. Our work will help humanity address fundamental questions of space science, technology, exploration, and sustainability. Check out more of our projects in the link below!
