The deployment of space robots for servicing and maintenance operations, which are tele-operated from ground, is a valuable addition to existing autonomous systems since it will provide flexibility and robustness in mission operations. In this connection, not only robotic manipulators are of great use but also free-flying inspector satellites supporting the(More)
Remotely operated systems are often used for terrestrial applications but they are not yet practically applied in space. The deployment of robots with multimodal feedback for on-orbit servicing (OOS) operations in space is a valuable addition to existing autonomous systems since it will provide increased flexibility and robustness in mission operations.

This paper presents a robotic capture concept for large spacecraft in low Earth orbit (LEO) that was developed as part of the the e.Deorbit feasibility study within the scope of the clean space initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA). The defective and tumbling satellite ENVISAT has been chosen as potential target to be captured, stabilized, and(More)
