Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The dynamics and control of aerospace systems have attracted growing interest due to being a key problem in the development of aerospace vehicles, such as space stations, space telescopes and advanced aircraft. The purpose of dynamics is to study system behaviours using time and force, while the purpose of control is to develop the control effect with error feedback under various working conditions. Knowledge of aerospace systems is critical for the design of control systems. Newly designed aerospace systems raise novel challenges for the dynamics and control techniques. We invite investigators to contribute original research and review articles addressing dynamics modelling, the stability analysis and controller design of aerospace systems.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Control system design of aircraft and spacecraft;
  • System modelling, analysis and identification of aerospace systems;
  • System stability of aerospace vehicles;
  • Sensors and control actuators of aircraft, rockets and spacecraft;
  • Orbit and attitude dynamics and control;
  • Drone dynamics and control;
  • Experimental investigation of aerospace systems;
  • Novel sensors and actuators of aerospace vehicles.

This paper proposes a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methodology to design a first-stage separation system for a launch vehicle. It focuses on the whole process of system modeling, such as modeling the requirements analysis, logical architecture design, physical architecture design, and system verification and validation. Finally, the component requirements are obtained as the baseline for the component design. Requirements analysis is carried out by identifying stakeholders with the cycle modeling for this system and the use of case modeling to ensure that the requirements are comprehensive and correct. Additionally, the standard system requirements are obtained and baselined. Based on system requirements, the trade-off analysis of hierarchical functional architecture and key indicators was mainly carried out to design the logical architecture. Once the logical architecture was decided, the logical architecture was allocated to the physical architecture to be implemented. Several physical architectures are analyzed hierarchically to seek the optimal architectures. Then, other CAE analysis tools were integrated to verify the physical architecture design. All these processes are modeled and integrated as the authority system model, which benefits the system engineer for managing the requirement changes easier and rapidly provides multi-views for different roles.
