Description: The third training school is intended to provide an insight into current problems and methods of spacecrafts formation flying, spacecraft feedback and automatic control as well as some numerical methods of astrodynamics. The planned lectures delivered by leading international experts will present current state-of-the-art in these domains. All ESR and ER enrolled in the AstroNet-II network will have the opportunity to present their results.
Period: Monday 23- Friday 27 June 2014.
