    SPACE 400 – Space Operations Planning

    Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

    This intensive course teaches students to integrate space operations into intelligence and multi-domain operations. Graduates will understand the current international legal regime and multi-national space organizations and the constraints both place on space operations. The course describes the fundamentals of space warfare as described in the US Joint Publication 3-14 and students shall be able to determine space operational requirements to protect coalition space assets and their ability to project combat power. Graduates will develop and analyze courses of action and operational requirements for the best employment of available space assets for ongoing and future military operations and communicate their knowledge to military staff and combat commanders. (Prerequisite: Space 310)

    SPACE 480 – Intelligence Support to Space Operations

    Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

    As the space domain continues to become more congested and contested, understanding the operational environment and key military and civilian players involved in this domain will provide a decisive advantage. Intelligence professionals play an integral role in providing evaluated and analyzed information on competitor space capabilities. Similar to other domains, intelligence is required during the mission planning process, the execution of operations, and the post-operation phase to determine operational and geopolitical effects. Knowing a competitors’ capabilities and limitations, force disposition, order of battle and intent can often mean the difference between victory and defeat. Additionally, understanding how environmental factors may impact operations is crucial to effective planning and execution of operations. Intelligence personnel should be relied upon to provide space domain awareness, frequency spectrum usage, intent of international competitors, international force disposition, environmental monitoring, and support to targeting and indications and warning (I&W). In this course, a discussion of processes and products utilized by space intelligence analysts will be discussed and how they are injected into planning and operations. Following a discussion of processes and products, the use of intelligence to support space control operations, both offensive and defensive in nature will be focused on. Lastly, this course will end with a discussion of environmental monitoring followed by the intelligence community and the roles and responsibilities of agencies/organizations that support the space domain.

    Advanced Spacecraft Dynamics and Control Specialization

    MOOC (Online) by Coursera and University of Colorado Boulder · Free · Current

    T​his Specialization on advanced spacecraft dynamics and control is intended for experienced spacecraft dynamics and GNC engineers and researchers. It is assumed the viewer has completed the prior spacecraft dynamics specialization already. Through 3 courses we cover the topics of momentum-based attitude dynamics and control, we derive analytical methods to model complex spacecraft systems, and finally conclude with a captstone project course. After this course you will be prepared to model the dynamics of spacecraft systems with time varying components (reacton wheels, CMS, deployable panels, etc.).

    Spacecraft Dynamics and Control Specialization

    MOOC (Online) by Coursera and University of Colorado Boulder · Free · Current

    Spacecraft Dynamics and Control covers three core topic areas: the description of the motion and rates of motion of rigid bodies (Kinematics), developing the equations of motion that prediction the movement of rigid bodies taking into account mass, torque, and inertia (Kinetics), and finally non-linear controls to program specific orientations and achieve precise aiming goals in three-dimensional space (Control). The specialization invites learners to develop competency in these three areas through targeted content delivery, continuous concept reinforcement, and project applications. The goal of the specialization is to introduce the theories related to spacecraft dynamics and control. This includes the three-dimensional description of orientation, creating the dynamical rotation models, as well as the feedback control development to achieve desired attitude trajectories.
