Spacecraft dynamics & control. Master thesis is on the orbit control for small satellites in a LEO using the FEEP thruster and the GPS receiver. I designed a suitable controller for the system and a suitable batched least square estimator. I modeled the satellite dynamics, aerodynamic drag and solar pressure in a simulation tool to test the controller developed.
B.Sc., Cairo University, Aerospace Engineering Department, Egypt, 1996.
Graduation Grade: Very Good with Honor Degree. Undergraduate studies included dynamics & control, Structures, Aerodynamics and propulsion. My graduation project in the undergraduate study was on a preliminary design of a communication satellite.
