29th AAS/AIAA Space Flight Mechanics Meeting

13 - 17 January 2019
Location: Ka’anapali, Hawaii
Venue: Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa


The 29th Space Flight Mechanics Meeting will be held 13–17 January 2019 at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa in Ka’anapali, HI. The conference is organized by the American Astronautical Society (AAS) Space Flight Mechanics Committee and co-sponsored by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Astrodynamics Technical Committee. Manuscripts are solicited on topics related to space-flight mechanics and astrodynamics, including but not necessarily limited to:

  • Asteroid and non-Earth orbiting missions
  • Atmospheric re-entry guidance and control
  • Attitude dynamics, determination and control
  • Attitude-sensor and payload-sensor calibration
  • Dynamical systems theory applied to space flight problems
  • Dynamics and control of large space structures and tethers
  • Earth orbital and planetary mission studies
  • Flight dynamics operations and spacecraft autonomy
  • Orbit determination and space-surveillance tracking
  • Orbital debris and space environment
  • Orbital dynamics, perturbations, and stability
  • Rendezvous, relative motion, proximity missions, and formation flying
  • Reusable launch vehicle design, dynamics, guidance, and control
  • Satellite constellations
  • Spacecraft guidance, navigation and control (GNC)
  • Space Situational Awareness (SSA), Conjunction Analysis (CA), and collision avoidance
  • Trajectory / mission / maneuver design and optimization


Manuscripts will be accepted based on the quality of the extended abstract, the originality of the work and/or ideas, and the anticipated interest in the proposed subject. Submissions that are based on experimental results or current data, or report on ongoing missions, are especially encouraged. Complete manuscripts are required before the conference. English is the working language for the conference.
