Dear visitors and SCA members,

CNES Automatic Control Systems network (COMET SCA) aims at sharing knowledge and skills between CNES, research labs and companies in the area of automatic control of space vehicles, such as attitude control of satellites, launchers, stratospheric balloons, or payloads, guidance and navigation of spacecrafts. Therefore, thematic workshops and seminars are organized.

Topics of interest for COMET SCA are automatic control area (linear and nonlinear control, robust control, filtering, modelling, identification), but also the design and implementation of control systems (actuator and sensor selection, control algorithms and fault management, real-time implementation, end of life operations).

Subscribe to COMET SCA to get informed of upcoming events. Become a member to have access to past events resources and share your knowledge and technical experience on automatic control in or outside the space domain.

Enjoy our website and see you soon !

    SCA - Automatic Control Systems
    Most attitude control scenarios are highly affected by fuel slosh dynamics that must be carefully taken into account to preserve pointing accuracy. Since such dynamics are not easily predictable, standard strategies consist of bounding the performances of the control system to avoid interactions between the rigid dynamics of the spacecraft and the oscillating liquid motion inside the fuel tank. Thanks to a recently developed control-oriented CFD-based fuel slosh model, alternative ...

    Robust Control and Convex Optimization

    SCA - Automatic Control Systems
    The COMET-SCA and the GT MOSAR (Methods and Tools for robust control and analysis) from GDR MACS co-organize a workshop on Robust Control and Convex Optimization. The objective of the workshop is to assess the theoretical and numerical issues of robust control and analysis methods. The upsides and limitations of these methods will be illustrated through application examples in space domain. This workshop is a great opportunity to meet the experts on ...
