Space Systems and Robotics

MIAE researchers are continuously pushing the boundaries of space-based research, including fundamental and applied research in space robotic manipulators, space debris removal systems, and extra-terrestrial rover operations. New emerging fields within the MIAE includes directed energy propulsion systems for interstellar travel, such as lightsails and laser-thermal propulsion technologies, as well as responsible design, and ethics, of autonomous intelligent space robotic systems which interact with humans.
