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.

SRDC Research Labs Focus
Adaptive Optics Beam Control Laboratory
A new Adaptive Optics Beam Control Lab provides a clean room environment for high energy beam control research.
Three Axis Simulator II
The three axis simulator II (TAS II) is a second generation spacecraft simulator equipped with more powerful actuators and more accurate sensors.
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.
