About these proceedings


This book presents selected papers of the Itzhack Y. Bar-Itzhack Memorial Sympo-

sium on Estimation, Navigation, and Spacecraft Control. Itzhack Y. Bar-Itzhack,

professor Emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of

Technology, was a prominent and world-renowned member of the applied estimation,

navigation, and spacecraft attitude determination communities. He touched the lives

of many. He had a love for life, an incredible sense of humor, and wisdom that he shared

freely with everyone he met. To honor Professor Bar-Itzhack's memory, as well as his

numerous seminal professional achievements, an international symposium was held

in Haifa, Israel, on October 14–17, 2012, under the auspices of the Faculty of Aerospace

Engineering at the Technion and the Israeli Association for Automatic Control.

The book contains 27 selected, revised, and edited contributed chapters written by

eminent international experts. The book is organized in three parts: (1) Estimation,

(2) Navigation and (3) Spacecraft Guidance, Navigation and Control. The volume was

prepared as a reference for research scientists and practicing engineers from academy

and industry in the fields of estimation, navigation, and spacecraft GN&C.
