During past few years, my research has focused on: 1) orientation and position estimation of spacecraft, 2) attitude sensor data processing, 3) satellite constellations, and 4) various topics in linear algebra and numerical algorithms (function inversion, interpolation, differential equations, rotation in n-dimensional real and complex spaces, etc.).
- MDPI Sensors. Special Issue “Attitude Sensors“. Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
- Attitude and position determination systems
