  • Mazhar, Hammad (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2011., 2011-08)
    NASA is interested in designing a spacecraft capable of visiting a Near Earth Object (NEO), performing experiments, and then returning safely. Certain periods of this mission will require the spacecraft to remain stationary ...

    We propose a novel deep space propulsion method called the Comet Hitchhiker. The concept is to perform momentum exchange with small bodies (i.e., asteroid and comet) using an extendable/retrievable tether and a harpoon. ...
  • Negrut, Dan; Mazhar, Hammad; Melanz, Daniel; Lamb, David; Jayakumar, Paramsothy; Letherwood, Michael; Jain, Abhinandan; Quadrelli, Marco (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2012., 2012-08-14)
    This paper is concerned with the physics-based simulation of light tracked vehicles operating on rough deformable terrain. The focus is on small autonomous vehicles, which weigh less than 100 lb and move on deformable and ...

  • Bandyopadhyay, Saptarshi; Quadrelli, Marco (Pasadena, CA: Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2017, 2017-06-19)
    "Orbiting Rainbows” is a paradigm for creating a space-based observatory (telescope) from confined and aligned granular media. The overall objective is to construct a very large and lightweight aperture in space using a ...

  • Ono, Masahiro; Quadrelli, Marco; Huntsberger, Terrance L. (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2014, 2014-06-04)
    This paper presents a path planning method for sea surface vehicles that prevents capsizing and bow-diving in a high sea-state. A key idea is to use response amplitude operators (RAOs) or, in control terminology, the ...
