PhDs in Aviation . The main objective of the program is to train highly qualified personnel in the field of dynamics and control the spatial (angular) motion of spacecraft and satellites (including micro-devices and nano-class) on the passive and active parts of the orbital motion, followed by the assignment of a scientific degree of PhD. As part of the training and dissertation examines characteristics of free and forced motion and control the dynamics of space systems and devices / satellites in the presence of external and internal disturbances of different nature, including the existence of gravitational and electromagnetic fields of the planets as well as the effect of the dissipative and eksitativnyh effects (atmospheres of planets, the internal effects friction, etc.). The area of ​​professional activities include: field of science, engineering and technology, covering the issues of integration of interacting measurement, information, computing, control and energy systems based on elements and nodes of high-precision mechanics, electronic, electrical, optical, and computer components, and provides research, design, development and production of qualitatively new optimal, adaptive and intelligent systems and traffic control systems, navigation and orientation in general and their sub-systems, in particular for aircraft and moving different objects. The program addressed the fundamental and applied aspects of nonlinear dynamics of mechanical / mechatronic systems of celestial mechanics, flight dynamics, motion control components and space systems, devices and satellites in passive and active sections of the trajectory. We study and study features of the dynamics of motion of spacecraft and satellites in the... [-]
