ADAMUS Lab

The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever -- Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky

The ADAMUS laboratory contributes to expanding human presence in space through its various research thrusts.

The ADvanced Autonomous MUltiple Spacecraft laboratory (ADAMUS) specializes in hardware-in-the-loop ground experiments validating spacecraft relative motion guidance, navigation, and control, as well as proximity operations and maneuvers involving contact (on-orbit assembly, servicing, re-fueling). With its six-degrees-of-freedom air-bearing-based spacecraft simulator, the laboratory can reproduce the dynamics of free-flying spacecraft, creating a unique environment to consolidate algorithms to run on future satellites, as well as actual hardware subsystems. Contact dynamics models and tools for satellite servicing can also be tested at the ADAMUS facility. The ADAMUS laboratory bridges the gap between computer numerical simulations and actual orbital flight.
