Tessella Designs Attitude and Orbit Control Algorithms for Solar Orbiter Spacecraft using Model-based Design

    The Solar Orbiter mission of the European Space Agency’s Cosmic Vision program is set to answer fundamental questions about the workings of the solar system and the origins of the universe.

    The Solar Orbiter spacecraft will carry 10 scientific instruments for close-up observation of solar features as well as instruments to perform in-situ measurements. It will travel to within 43 million km of the Sun—closer than Mercury—where it will experience 13 times the intensity of terrestrial sunlight and temperatures of up to 520°C...
