ARCLab

The Astrodynamics, space Robotics, and Controls Laboratory (ARCLab), led by Professor Richard Linares, is part of AeroAstro's Space Systems Laboratory. Spaceflight is entering a period of renaissance, with considerable change in the perception of what humanity’s role in space will be. ARCLab conducts critical research and develops new solutions for the problems of Space Traffic Management and Space Situational Awareness. The technologies that are revolutionizing near-Earth spaceflight will provide new opportunities for deep-space exploration. ARCLab's research is in the intersection of autonomy, astrodynamics, and controls with application to space exploration. ARCLab focuses on the following research areas: astrodynamics, space situational awareness and space traffic management, satellite guidance and navigation, estimation and controls, reinforcement learning, optimal control.
