Stabilization of the Radial Position of a Tethered Satellite System

We investigate the stabilization of the radial position of a tethered satellite by tension control with respect to in-plane and out-of-plane perturbations. In previous investigations ([1, 2]) we considered the deployment and retrieval of a satellite from the main station, assuming that the motion of the satellite is restricted to the orbital plane. Now we… CONTINUE READING
