GN&C

How Do You Control a Spacecraft?

GNC stands for Guidance, Navigation, and Control. This subsystem is responsible for determining the orientation of the spacecraft in orbit and controlling that orientation. The GNC subsystem interacts with nearly all of the subsystems to ensure that the spacecraft’s orientation complies with their requirements.

 

GN&C capabilities:

  • Mission planning
  • Dynamics Simulations
  • Guidance of all mission phases
  • Navigation: system architecture trade studies, sensor selection, filter development
  • Control: algorithms, stability analyses, controller design, modeling, and simulation
  • Sensor hardware development
  • Closed loop calibration, testing, and qualification
