Active Vibration Protection for Rocket Electronics
This research explores the ability to use control algorithms and AI to stabilize electronics in a rocket payload bay. Since the payload is often quite delicate (expensive satellites, robotics, and other spacecraft), special care is put into the rocket design and the choices of electronics to ensure that no damage occurs from the violent vibrations during launch. Actively stabilizing vibrations in the payload bay will provide the ability to use newer technology with sensitive electronics in satellites and spacecraft.
