Mission of the Space-FALCON Lab
Our focus is on pioneering dynamic autonomous robotics solutions tailored to the unique challenges and opportunities of space exploration and technology. Drawing from a well-rounded blend of expertise, we aim to lead the next phase of advanced space missions with robustness, adaptability, and efficiency.
With a foundation in guidance, navigation, and control, flight mechanics, hypersonic and space systems, and complemented by competencies in artificial intelligence, trajectory optimization, and mission design, we address both the established and emerging challenges of space missions. Our research goal is to:
DESIGN AND DEVELOP DYNAMIC AUTONOMOUS ROBOTICS SOLUTIONS THAT ARE CAPABLE OF REASONING AND REACTING TO ENABLE SPACE MISSIONS CURRENTLY UNATTAINABLE, BUT HIGHLY DESIRED.
Decision-making Architectures for Space: Harnessing our multi-disciplinary expertise, we aim to develop human-level environment-aware decision-making systems tailored for dynamic and uncertain space environments.
Atmospheric-Controlled Robotic Systems: Our focus extends to creating advanced robotic systems optimized for entry, descent, landing, and operation in low Earth orbit.
Image Recognition in Space: Recognizing the importance of image processing in modern space missions, we're delving into image recognition, particularly as it relates to monitoring Earth's climate and landscape changes from space.
Artificial Intelligence & Trajectory Optimization: We merge the realms of AI with trajectory optimization to facilitate intelligent mission planning that's adaptive and efficient.
As the frontier of space technology expands, so does our research vision. The Space-FALCON Lab is constantly exploring new dimensions in space mission capabilities.
