    This article presents the results of research into the field of dynamic simulation of mechanical and robotic systems. The main goal of the whole project is to achieve an efficient modular approach to modeling, in order to make the modeling process easier, ensure its traceability and inspectability, and support model reuse. This is achieved through the declarative definition of models, the standard... View full abstract»

    Future spaceborne optical interferometers and laser satellite communication systems are two space applications that require a precision pointing function in order to meet mission goals. Spaceborne interferometers provide a promising means to discover Earth-like planets in other solar-like systems. The laser communication systems provide a low-power, low-cost, lightweight means of data relay betwee... View full abstract»
