International Workshop on Satellite Constellations and Formation Flying
June 22, 2017
The 9th International Workshop on Satellite Constellations and Formation Flying (IWSCFF-2017) of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) took place in Boulder, Colorado, on 19–21 June. Drs. Sergey Shestakov and Danil Ivanov presented two papers, while the latter also chaired one of the sections of the conference.
The event covered a wide range of problems of satellite constellations and formation flying, from theoretical studies of controlled motion to laboratory simulation and flight dynamics tests results. The review of the papers and the whole conference is shown in the presentation.
The last day of the conference included a visit to the Laboratory of Atmosphere and Space Physics (LASP) where a number of cutting-edge space missions, like the famous Magnetospheric MultiScale Mission (MMS), are being developed.
