COARSE: Convex Optimization Based Autonomous Control for Asteroid Rendezvous and Sample Exploration

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Ray Ramadorai, ray@arkyd.com
Award Amount: $124,478.00
Abstract:
Sample return missions, by nature, require high levels of spacecraft autonomy. Developments in hardware avionics have led to more capable real-time onboard computing platforms, which allow for the implementation of more sophisticated algorithms. A real-time convex optimizer named COARSE (Convex… More
