In January 2014, a new control law, known as adaptive control, was uploaded on board the CNES scientific satellite "Picard" dedicated to studying the sun. This satellite, on a mission beyond its design life expectancy, has lent itself to demonstrate these innovative algorithms. Challenges: improving performance and especially shortening the design time.
The new European instrument SPHERE, installed on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile, has just delivered the first images, which are of unprecedented accuracy. The core of the system: revolutionary adaptive optics developed by Onera, one of the world leaders in the field.
Aerospace Lab is an open access electronic journal dedicated to scientific progress in aeronautics and space research. Its featured technical fields therefore include aerodynamics, propulsion, materials, structures, physics, sensors, information processing, and systems engineering.
