The Institute of Space Systems in Bremen designs and analyzes future spacecraft and space missions (launchers, orbital and exploration systems, and satellites), and assesses them with regard to their technical performance and cost. It applies state-of-the-art methods of multi-disciplinary engineering in system design and analysis – for example, a computerized system for concurrent design. The Guidance, Navigation and Control Systems Department focuses on the capability to analyze, design, develop, implement, simulate, test, and verify attitude and orbit control systems (AOCS) / guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) systems for space applications and their components. This involves a range of disciplines, including requirements management, systems engineering, algorithm development, software implementation, systems analysis/simulation/verification, and hardware-in-the-loop testing. The GNC Systems Department is also conducting research and development of promising and strategic technologies for AOCS and GNC systems.
The guidance and control group works within the field of research and development of guidance and control systems for space applications. We thoroughly analyze dynamic systems to synthesize robust and performant guidance and control solutions in order to achieve a highly reliable, controlled system. This encompasses system identification, controller design and trajectory optimization. Our activities range from mathematical problem formulation and modelling to simulation, flight code implementation and software verification and validation in real-time environments.
The GNC Systems Department is actively involved in several internal and international projects. This encompasses among others the project ReFEx (Reusability Flight Experiment), the project CALLISTO – an international cooperation between DLR and the space agencies JAXA (Japan) und CNES (France), and the EU H2020 project EURISA with partners in France and Switzerland. The work comprises th development of guidance and control technologies for different space flight applications.
Within this context, we are looking for scientific staff members to conduct the following tasks within the Guidance & Control Research Group:
