Oguri Research Group
We conduct research in Astrodynamics and Space Applications. Our research addresses scientific and engineering challenges in space exploration through advancing the state of the art in space mission design, space trajectory optimization, spacecraft guidance, navigation, and control (GNC), and space autonomy. To this end, we develop new mathematical and computational methods combining expertise from astrodynamics, control theory, optimization, stochastic systems, and probabilistic decision making. The director Prof. Oguri's flight project experience at NASA JPL and JAXA with continued research collaborations will play a key role to blend theory and practice, to identify and address critical challenges in real-world applications, and to contribute to the forefront of space exploration. Flight space missions with our research contributions include Psyche (NASA), NEA Scout (NASA), EQUULEUS (JAXA), and PROCYON (JAXA).
