An algorithm is developed for estimating the motion (relative attitude and relative position) of large pieces of space debris, such as failed satellites. The algorithm is designed to be used by a debris removal system which would perform various operations on space debris such as observation, investigation, capture, repair, refuel and de-orbit. During these operations, the debris removal system must control its position and attitude simultaneously. Such six degree-of-freedom control becomes… CONTINUE READING
