Hanspeter Schaub

Hanspeter Schaub is the Glenn L. Murphy Chair of Engineering and Professor in Aerospace Engineering Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder and is the current graduate chair of the aerospace engineering sciences department. He has nearly 20 years of research experience, of which four years are at Sandia National Laboratories. His research interests are in nonlinear dynamics and control, astrodynamics, relative motion dynamics, and relative motion sensing. This has led to approximately 122 journal and 187 conference publications, and a 3rd edition textbook on analytical mechanics of space systems. In the last decade, he has developed the emerging field of charged astrodynamics. Schaub has been the ADCS lead in the CICERO mission and the ADCS algorithm lead on a Mars Mission. He has been awarded the H. Joseph Smead Fellowship, the Provosts Faculty Achievement Award, the Faculty Assembly Award for excellence in teaching, as well as the Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award.

Kinematics: Describing the Motions of Spacecraft (Coursera)

The movement of bodies in space (like spacecraft, satellites, and space stations) must be predicted and controlled with precision in order to ensure safety and efficacy. Kinematics is a field that develops descriptions and predictions of the motion of these bodies in 3D space. This course in Kinematics covers [...]

Spacecraft Dynamics Capstone: Mars Mission (Coursera)

The goal of this capstone spacecraft dynamics project is to employ the skills developed in the rigid body Kinematics, Kinetics and Control courses. An exciting two-spacecraft mission to Mars is considered where a primary mother craft is in communication with a daughter vehicle in another orbit. The [...]

Control of Nonlinear Spacecraft Attitude Motion (Coursera)

This course trains you in the skills needed to program specific orientation and achieve precise aiming goals for spacecraft moving through three dimensional space. First, we cover stability definitions of nonlinear dynamical systems, covering the difference between local and global stability. We then analyze and apply Lyapunov's Direct Method [...]

Kinetics: Studying Spacecraft Motion (Coursera)

As they tumble through space, objects like spacecraft move in dynamical ways. Understanding and predicting the equations that represent that motion is critical to the safety and efficacy of spacecraft mission development. Kinetics: Modeling the Motions of Spacecraft trains your skills in topics like rigid body angular momentum and [...]
