Research Areas

Rensselaer’s SEAL is developing new spacecraft technologies that will enable scientific missions to exciting new exploration destinations.

Link to our annual workshop (may ultimately move the workshop website to be a part of the SEAL website). But, for now, go to:

Creating three-dimensional models of space objects with cameras, LIDARs, and other sensors.
Developing new algorithms for estimating a spacecraft’s position, velocity, and attitude.
Enhancing our knowledge of the formation and evolution of the Solar System through analyzing images of asteroids, comets, moons, and other celestial bodies.
Regular involvement in new mission proposals and in active spaceflight missions.
Designing novel algorithms for extracting information from digital images and 3D point clouds.
