Aerospace Science and Operations

We are a 19 members group belonging to the Technical School of Aeronautical and Space Engineering (ETSIAE), between researchers, technical staff and researchers in training. Most of the members of the group carry out our research work in the Spanish branch of the Operations and User Support Center (E USOC), a Center belonging to the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid specialized in research and development activities in the area of science and aerospace technology, and one of the seven delegates from the European Space Agency (ESA), the European laboratories for the preparation and execution of experiments aboard the International Space Station.
