The 7th 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).
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 offers a series of keynote lectures. These lectures are delivered by experts from specific astrodynamics fields.
The 7th edition of ICATT is dedicated to the exploration of the Moon and beyond.
