Re-entry trajectory optimization for space shuttle using Sine-Cosine Algorithm


The re-entry phase of the reusable launch vehicle (RLV) is a challenging optimal control problem because of its high nonlinearity and numerical sensitivity. In this paper, a recently proposed metaheuristic optimization algorithm, Sine-Cosine Algorithm(SCA) is employed to solve the re-entry trajectory problem for space shuttle vehicle. A cost function which… (More)
