The role of a path planning unit within a control scheme is to determine the reference signals using a nominal model of the plant. This work addresses the problem of path planning for a satellite. The classical linear approach is compared to nonlinear flatness approach. It is shown that the integration of nonlinear character of the plant in the path(More)
This work investigates the problem of robust trajectory tracking of a class of uncertain multi-input/multi-output (MIMO) nonlinear systems. A robust tracking control methodology for such systems using flatness theory is suggested. First, it is shown how feasible desired state-space and the associated nominal control input trajectory are generated by an(More)
This paper describes the status of an on-going research work and investigates the problem of entry guidance of the Atmospheric Re-entry Demonstrator (ARD). We propose an entry guidance scheme that uses the flatness property. First, it is shown that the longitudinal dynamics of the ARD is flat and by using flatness property a feasible desired output and the(More)
