GNC-2 - GNC Technologies for Atmosferic Re-Entry

Obiettivo

GNC-2 project has the following specific objectives:

  • Identify operational scenarios and one or more missions to be used as a reference for the development of GNC technologies.
  • Develop Guidance, navigation and control technologies for atmospheric re-entry, from deorbiting to landing. The technologies will be developed up to a TRL 4-5 through the verification and validation with a test rig Hardware in the Loop.
  • Develop Guidance, navigation and control technologies for the orbital phase of a mission in Low Earth Orbit for single platforms. The technologies will be developed up to a TRL level 4-5 through the verification and validation with a test rig Hardware in the Loop.

The technologies developed within the GNC-2 project will be used, after appropriate engineering phase, for the demonstration in flight through flying test beds related to CIRA projects concerning orbital flight, atmospheric re-entry and hypersonic flight (PRIDE and Hexafly-Int).

Attività nel progetto CIRA

  • Development of Guidance, Navigation and Control technologies for a complete atmospheric re-entry, from deorbiting to landing phase, with the goal of achieving a technology readiness level equal to 4-5.
  • Development of Guidance, Navigation and Control technologies for attitude and orbit determination and control for individual platforms in Low Earth Orbit, with the goal of achieving a technology readiness level equal to 4-5.

The project has the goal of developing GNC technologies for orbital phase and atmospheric re-entry of a space mission. It includes the following main phases:

  1. Identification of operational scenarios within which to develop GNC technologies.
  2. Development of technologies and preliminary verification of the algorithms through numerical simulations.
  3. Development of an RT/HIL facility for verification in real time of SW prototypes of GNC algorithms developed.
  4. Verification and validation phase through Real time/Hardware in the Loop.

The technologies developed within the project could be used as "Payload" flying test bed within projects involving atmospheric re-entry and hypersonic flight as PRIDE and Hexafly-Int. This will allow the in flight validation of developed technologies, thus reaching a level of technological maturity of 6-7. Any customization and engineering activities for the use of GNC technologies on these platforms are anyway outside the scope of this project.
