Visiting professors at ISAE-SUPAERO : DAN SCHEERES

ISAE-SUPAERO is a research and innovation-driven institution of higher education, committed to balancing scientific excellence, academic visibility and proximity to industrial objectives. Its research activities have helped to make the school an international leader not only in terms of its Aerospace Engineering program but also its post-graduate programs including its masters (MSc) and doctoral programs in engineering sciences.
Therefore, many international key players in research visit their conterparts at ISAE-SUPAERO.
We have met Dan Sheeres a University of Colorado Distinguished Professor and the A. Richard Seebass Chair in the Ann and H.J. Smead Aerospace Engineering Sciences Department at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Dan Scheeres’ research spans the topics of astrodynamics and spacecraft navigation to planetary science and celestial mechanics, and has published extensively in these
fields. Asteroid 8887 is named “Scheeres” in recognition of his contributions to the scientific understanding of the dynamical environment about asteroids.
During his time at ISAE-SUPAERO, Prof. Scheeres and the Space Systems for Planetary Applications team collaborated on analyses of DART data and the development of concepts to probe the internal structure of asteroids during future space missions.
Moreover, Dan Scheeres and ISAE-SUPAERO have jointly published several articles in “Nature” about asteroids and the DART mission.

Discover... the multidisciplinary test platform EMpEROR of ISAE-SUPAERO! ISAE-SUPAERO / SapienSapienS

The EMpEROR platform was born on the one hand, from the increasing consideration of aeroelastic phenomena in modern aeronautics, and on the other hand, from the synergy between the Aerodynamics, Energetics, and Propulsion (DAEP) and Structural Mechanics and Materials (DMSM) departments.
This platform has been designed and thought out to allow great modularity of metrology, around a rotor bench allowing to rotate from 1 to 6 blades, up to 1 meter in diameter, from 0 to 3000 rpm, and this in complete safety thanks to a 6-meter-long protective cage. It is equipped with several sensors for performance measurements, but also with a rotating vibrometry system for measuring the dynamics of the blades (this system is only used by two laboratories in Europe). The bench also makes it possible to embed measurement systems in the blades, but also in the coming months, systems to control these unstable phenomena.
Since 2020, this platform has also enabled two thesis students to work on aeroelastic phenomena, as well as 6 Master’s students. This platform also makes it possible to generate experimental databases used by ISAE-SUPAERO researchers to compare and validate their computer codes.
The equipment will increase in power in 2024 with the addition of the possibility of making Laser measurements, of the PIV or/and LDV type, as well as the possibility of manufacturing more complex blades with the hand on the flexibility of these.

Discover... ISAE-SUPAERO’s land mobile robots! ISAE-SUPAERO / SapienSapienS

ISAE-SUPAERO - as a center for training through #research, research training and innovation - has many research equipments used within its 6 research departments.
Today, we present the land mobile robots!
Whether robots, planes, cars, or even telephones, all of these technologies are equipped with perception systems. Depending on the application, these sources of information make it possible to perceive the environment in which a system evolves but also to measure its own characteristics, such as for example its velocity or its acceleration. This multitude of data must then be used, cross-referenced and interpreted within what is called the navigation system to obtain the positioning of the vehicle but also, in the case of mapping applications, that of the objects which surround it.
Within the NAVIRRES (Navigation, Radar, and Remote Sensing) team of the DEOS, researchers are interested in navigation systems and their application in complex environments where sensor information can be degraded, erroneous or even unavailable. Thus, mobile acquisition platforms are developed, equipped with cameras, lidars, GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receivers, radars and inertial measurement units, with the aim of obtaining the most efficient navigation system possible, according to the intended application. One of the research topics of the team concerns the analysis of the degradation of information from sensors, which leads to the development of new robust and adaptive algorithms, making it possible to overcome environmental constraints. The ultimate goal is to make navigation systems more precise and safer, for critical applications requiring strong reliability, such as autonomous cars or exploration robotics.
