The Colorado Center for Astrodynamics Research (CCAR) is dedicated to the study of astrodynamics and the application of satellites to science, navigation, and remote sensing of the Earth and planets. Hosted by the Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences, CCAR was established in 1985 at the University of Colorado at Boulder. CCAR brings together a multidisciplinary group of researchers to enhance our understanding of the Earth and the solar system through satellite missions and observations. Research topics include astrodynamics, space debris motion, relative motion sensing and control, optical debris tracking, and touchless charge and material property sending of a nearby spacecraft.
