Unit of study_

AERO5700: Space Engineering (Advanced)

Estimation techniques are applied to a wide range of aerospace systems. In this subject optimal estimation techniques will be presented as a collection of algorithms and their implementation.

Code AERO5700
Academic unit Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic
Credit points 6
(AERO3760 AND AERO4701) OR AERO9760

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. recognise and appreciate the coupling between the different elements within an estimation task, such as satellite remote sensing, from a systems-theoretic perspective
  • LO2. use this system knowledge and basic design principles to design and test a solution to a given task, with a focus on aerospace applications (such as satellite remote sensing)
  • LO3. apply learned techniques in various areas to solving a wide range of different problems in engineering
  • LO4. conduct literature searches in studying past solutions to example problems, and draw upon this knowledge during the design process
  • LO5. communicate findings and design via verbal presentation and/or written reports
  • LO6. demonstrate project management skills to undertake the defined project activities
  • LO7. critically reflect on professional context issues in undertaking well-defined individual responsibilities and achievements.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.

There are no unit outlines available online for previous years.
