NASA grant for new generation Entry Descent Landing Technology ..

Dr. Bhattacharya and Dr. Rao has been awarded NASA grant to develop "Robust Adaptive Real-Time 6DOF Trajectory Generation for Atmospheric Reentry Vehicles". This is a 3-year effort to develop a new generation Entry Descent Landing (EDL) technology for analysis and design of high accuracy adaptive guidance algorithms for applications related to High Mass Mars Entry Systems (HMMES). The research work involves robust adaptive trajectory generation and uncertainty propagation in the hypersonic flight regime for EDL vehicles.
