This paper presents the current status of the research effort on autonomous proximity-navigation and spacecraft docking, which is on-going at the Spacecraft Servicing and Robotics Laboratory of the Naval Postgraduate School. An experimental test-bed has been designed and is in the advance integration phase, which can be used for validating analytical and numerical results regarding dynamic models and control laws. The test-bed consists of two spacecraft models floating via air-pads on a flat… CONTINUE READING
