        The goal Studying of modern day systems and methods of guidance and control, enabling the students to take part in research and development work in this field. The attention is focused toward adaptive systems, optimization of guidance process, and fusion of data from heterogenuous sensor systems.
        The outcome Ability of students to individually specify control task, retreive and select the appropriate scientific literature, define their own approach in solving of a control task, realize simulation and/or laboratory environment for the analysis and testing, implement the control algorithm and to verify and describe the results according to the actual scientific standards.
        Contents of lectures The problems of analysis and synthesis of optimal guidance for space objects are considered as well as the adaptive autopilots for the stabilization along nominal trajectories, programming of trajectories of rockets used for launching of cosmic crafts and space stabilization of artificial satellites, and the automatic navigation based on fusion of data originating from heterogeneous sensors.
