Summary: Automatic Control in Space is a compendium of papers presented on the Eighth IFAC Symposium that took place in Oxford, England in July 1979. The book is comprised of an assortment of presentations prepared by experts in the fields of engineering, computer science, robotics, optics, aeronautics, and other allied disciplines discussing various aspects and types of automatic control systems and applications used in space technology. The text covers a broad range of topics on space technology, such as stabilization systems for space telescopes and balloon platforms; spacecraft attitude estimation and space navigation; and various control algorithms for different motion stabilization problems. Robotic systems; automatic control for large space transportations; and a path selection system for an autonomous Martian roving vehicle are presented as well. The text will be of high interest for engineers, computer scientists, physicists, inventors, astronomers, and various experts in space technology.
