Sixth International Conference on Astrodynamics Tools and Techniques (ICATT)

The conference takes place from 14th to 17th March 2016 in Darmstadt, Germany. The scientific program is composed of tutorials (March 14th) and tracks (March 15th, 16th, and 17th) composed of presentations on different topics: ascent, orbiting, satellite formations, interplanetary flight and non-Earth orbits, rendezvous and docking, low thrust, re-entry and assisted maneuvers, optimization and dynamics, environmental modelling, space debris, verification and validation methods, etc.

14 March 2016 - 17 March 2016

The 6th International Conference on Astrodynamics Tools and Techniques - ICATT - ( is an event organized by the European Space Agency (ESA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt (DLR), the Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES) of France, the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), the Tsentralniy Aerogidrodinamicheskiy Institut (TsAGI) of Russia, the United Kingdom Space Agency (UKSA), and the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA).

This edition, ICATT is supported as well by Airbus Defence and Space, the European Launch VehicleELV, Thales Alenia Space, OHB System AG, SENER, Elecnor Deimos, Astos Solutions GmbH, the Italian Aerospace Research Centre CIRA, Arianespace, CS Information Systems, and HE Space Operations.

ICATT aims at providing agencies, companies, organizations, universities and research institutes with a forum of excellence in the area of astrodynamics and space flight mechanics. Participants are invited to showcase their latest tools and techniques so as to promote the creation and exchange of ideas and the identification of new trends and required developments: challenges in the field of astrodynamics and orbital mechanics, current status of tools, their pros and cons, visions for the future, etc.

In addition to the latest theoretical advances in the field of astrodynamics, ICATT is especially devoted to astrodynamics software tools. Demonstrations and short tutorials are welcome. Furthermore, as in previous editions, ICATT shall offer a series of theoretical lectures. These lectures are delivered by experts from specific astrodynamics fields.
