LONG-TERM ANALYTICAL PROPAGATION OF SATELLITE RELATIVE MOTION IN PERTURBED ORBITS
Many scientific applications require the implementation of satellite formation-flying in various orbits both around Earth and other planetary bodies. The design and guidance of these new formations…
Linear Models for Spacecraft Relative Motion Perturbed by Solar Radiation Pressure
Many scientific applications require the implementation of spacecraft formation-flying around Earth and other celestial bodies. The control of these formations calls for simple relative dynamics mo...
Integration Constants as State Variables for Optimal Path Planning
This paper presents a general methodology to model the governing equations-in general non-integrable and nonlinear– using the integration constants of a reduced integrable part and formalizes the optimal path planning problem in integration constant space.
Multi-Objective Autonomous Spacecraft Motion Planning around Near-Earth Asteroids using Machine Learning
- T. Guffanti
A spacecraft (SC) capable to autonomously plan its motion while accounting for conflicting mission objectives in a Pareto optimal way would permit to accomplish complex mission tasks around highly…
Multi-Agent Passive Safe Optimal Control using Integration Constants as State Variables
This paper presents a new algorithm that provides optimal control profiles that drive a multi-agent system to a desired state at a desired time, with the guarantee of no collision, for a specified…
