Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Control system of energy combustion units of heavy multicopters

    The existing development of small flying unmanned aerial vehicles based on multicopters shows also the potential for higher mass categories. However, there is a problem with sufficient battery capacity. That is why today most designs are concerned with the use of conventional combustion engines. In this work is supposed to evaluate possibilities of combustion engines as energy units for multicopters with payload up to 200kgs. Subsequently, for selected units, evaluate and design a control system for these units with respect to the corresponding flight characteristics and operation safety.

  2. Increasing the safety of the operation of spacecraft in Earth orbits.

    Space surveillance shows that there is now a great deal of cosmic debris in various orbits around the Earth. These objects are very dangerous for other functional satellites on Earth's orbit. Therefore, it will be important to find ways to ensure the continued safe operation of space planes (satellites, orbital spacecraft, etc.). Emergency evasive maneuvers in orbit are very demanding. It shows the need to find ways to clear the Earth's orbit from the space debris.
