AUSTIN PROBE

Aerospace Engineer | Roboticist

I am a third year PhD student at the Land, Air, and Space Robotics Lab at Texas A&M University, and I am currently working on writing my dissertation. I earned both my Bachelor's and Master's at Texas A&M as well, in 2011 and 2013 respectively.

 

I like almost anything related to space and robots. Specifically, I am interested in control, dynamics, and estimation for space systems as well as large scale computational simulations and uncertainty quantification.

DEBRIS REMOVAL

Space debris is bad and we should do something about it. I have worked on various projects dedicated to developing technology to help capture and remove the debris (more details here). This includes hardware and software work for HOMER and STEP, robotic systems for Hardware-in-the-Loop testing.

ASTRODYNAMICS

There are a lot of things in space. Part of my research is devoted to identification and tracking of those objects, otherwise know as Space Situational Awareness (SSA). This includes efforts in uncertainty quantification, high performance computing, numerical integration, and dynamics. More info

ATTITUDE CONTROL

I have worked on several challenges in spacecraft attitude control. This includes the development of the LASR Attitude Test-bed (LAT) a custom 3-DoF experimental attitude platform for testing attitude control and estimation algorithms. This platform has also been used for teaching attitude control and estimation in several classes at Texas A&M.
