In impulsive orbital maneuvers, thrust vector misalignment from the center of mass (C.M) results in a large disturbance torque. In this paper a thrusting maneuver system is proposed and studied which is based on the combination of a one degree of freedom (1DoF) gimbaled-thruster, two reaction wheels (RWs) and spin-stabilization. The main goals are… CONTINUE READING
