Future very large space structures, such as solar power stations and space telescopes, will need to be assembled in orbit by teams of cooperating space robots. Controlling these space robots is difficult due to the dynamic interactions forces between the robots and the large and very flexible structures. Sensing and actuation are also limited in space.

The robotic maneuvering of large space structures is key to a number of future orbital missions. In this paper a large space structure maneuver control algorithm, recently proposed, is extended and experimentally validated. The method uses space robots' manipulators to control the vibration of the structures being maneuvered and their reaction jets perform(More)
