Welcome to the permanent website of the International Symposium on Space Flight Dynamics (ISSFD).

The ISSFD is a series of conferences providing an international forum for specialists in the field of space flight dynamics. It is sponsored by various space agencies, including APL, CNES, DLR/GSOC, ESA/ESOC, EUMETSAT, INPE, JAXA/ISAS, JPL, NASA/GSFC, Roscosmos, CSA, CAS and XSCC. The symposia take place at an interval of about 18 months, and the sponsor agencies and centers take turns to organize it.

Areas of interest for the ISSFD include, but are not limited to:
  • Flight dynamics operations
  • Orbit theory
  • Mission and trajectory design
  • GN&C measurement systems
  • Tracking and orbit determination
  • Maneuver design
  • Autonomous navigation
  • Attitude dynamics, determination, and control
  • Formation flying
  • Constellation design and maintenance
  • Space environment, orbital debris and collision risk mitigation
This website primarily serves as an archive for abstracts and papers of past ISSFD symposia.

The 28th International Symposium on Space Flight Dynamics (ISSFD 2022) has jointly been organized by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), State Key Laboratory of Astronautic Dynamics (ADL), and Beihang University (Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, BUAA). The 28th ISSFD was successfully held as a hybrid meeting online and onsite in Beijing, China from 29 August to 2 September 2022.

For more details including program, abstracts and full papers please visit the 28th ISSFD website at https://issfd-28.casconf.cn/.

The next (29th) ISSFD is currently planned for spring 2024 and will be held either in Darmstadt, Germany or Toulouse, France. More details will be announced soon.
