This course covers the basics of Navigation, Guidance, and Control used in aerospace systems.

Basically all the above three topics use basic control theory for their mathematical framework.

This course covers all three topics under one course and is meant for undergraduate aerospace engineering students.

The course can also be used for first year graduate students in aerospace engineering to expose them to basics of control theory applied to aerospace engineering.

 

A Web course shall contain 40 or more 1 hour lecture equivalents.
