Autonomous Formation Flying in Low Earth Orbit
Formation flying is commonly identified as the collective usage of two or more cooperative spacecraft to exercise the function of a single monolithic virtual instrument. The distribution of tasks andExpand
Proximity Operations of Formation-Flying Spacecraft Using an Eccentricity/Inclination Vector Separation
The implementation of synthetic apertures by means of a distributed satellite system requires tight control of the relative motion of the participating satellites. This paper investigates aExpand
Spaceborne Autonomous Formation Flying Experiment on the PRISMA Mission
The Prototype Research Instruments and Space Mission Technology Advancement (PRISMA) represents the first European technology demonstration of formation-flying and on-orbit-servicing techniques.Expand
Autonomous Formation Flying for the PRISMA Mission
Estimates of the expected relative orbit control performances based upon realworld simulations using typical global positioning system receiver and propulsion system characteristics are derived. Expand
New Closed-Form Solutions for Optimal Impulsive Control of Spacecraft Relative Motion
This paper addresses energy-optimal guidance and control of satellite relative motion for formation flying and rendezvous using impulsive maneuvers. To meet the requirements of future multisatellit...
Satellite Pose Estimation Challenge: Dataset, Competition Design, and Results
The main contribution of this article is the analysis of the submissions of the 48 competitors, which compares the performance of different approaches and uncovers what factors make the satellite pose estimation problem especially challenging. Expand
Prisma Formation Flying Demonstrator: Overview and Conclusions from the Nominal Mission
The PRISMA in-orbit testbed was launched on June 15, 2010 to demonstrate strategies and technologies for formation flying and rendezvous. OHB Sweden (OHB-SE) is the prime contractor for the projectExpand
Neural Network-Based Pose Estimation for Noncooperative Spacecraft Rendezvous
The Spacecraft Pose Network (SPN), the first neural network-based method for on-board estimation of the pose, i.e., the relative position and attitude, of a known noncooperative spacecraft using monocular vision is presented. Expand
TanDEM-X Autonomous Formation Flying System
The motivation, concept and architecture of the TanDEM-X Autonomous Formation Flying (TAFF) system are presented and the integration of TAFF into the already existing spacecraft design is discussed. Expand
