The 29th Space Flight Mechanics Meeting will be held 13–17 January 2019 at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa in Ka’anapali, HI. The conference is organized by the American Astronautical Society (AAS) Space Flight Mechanics Committee and co-sponsored by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Astrodynamics Technical Committee. Manuscripts are solicited on topics related to space-flight mechanics and astrodynamics, including but not necessarily limited to:

    Asteroid and non-Earth orbiting missions
    Atmospheric re-entry guidance and control
    Attitude dynamics, determination and control
    Attitude-sensor and payload-sensor calibration
    Dynamical systems theory applied to space flight problems
    Dynamics and control of large space structures and tethers
    Earth orbital and planetary mission studies
    Flight dynamics operations and spacecraft autonomy
    Orbit determination and space-surveillance tracking

        Orbital debris and space environment
    Orbital dynamics, perturbations, and stability
    Rendezvous, relative motion, proximity missions, and formation flying
    Reusable launch vehicle design, dynamics, guidance, and control
    Satellite constellations
    Spacecraft guidance, navigation and control (GNC)
    Space Situational Awareness (SSA), Conjunction Analysis (CA), and collision avoidance
    Trajectory / mission / maneuver design and optimization

Manuscripts will be accepted based on the quality of the extended abstract, the originality of the work and/or ideas, and the anticipated interest in the proposed subject. Submissions that are based on experimental results or current data, or report on ongoing missions, are especially encouraged. Complete manuscripts are required before the conference. English is the working language for the conference.
