A multidisciplinary terrestrial laboratory for research of highly accurate closed loop solutions will be started within the framework of Space-SI.  Its goal is to raise the efficiency of micromechanical actuators characterization and to test micro- and nanosatellite interactive visual based guidance by merging them into a common connected solution. This will enable comprehensive research of all control elements for orbital maneuvers, from actuators to platform responses (modeling spacecraft dynamics and space environment) and sensors.
