Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Spacecraft Research and Design Center (SRDC)

I invite you to browse our web site and learn about the center. 

The research in our center is progressing in several challenging areas, such as flexible spacecraft control, acquisition, tracking and pointing, optical beam control, adaptive optics, beam jitter, adaptive control, control moment gyros control, and spacecraft design. The center has several state-of-art laboratories for instruction and research.

Adaptive Optics Testbed

The Adaptive Optics Testbed uses adaptive optics to improve the quality of an imaged object. Light from an object of interest and a red light reference laser beam travel together though the optical components on the table, becoming aberrated in the process.
