Guidance, Navigation and Control strategies of a small satellite involved in inspection operations with a colaborative target
Research Groups 22-Progetto e sviluppo di sistemi e tecnologie aerospaziali
Description Objective: the thesis aims at defining the attitude determination and control strategies for a small satellite that orbits around a collaborative larger spacecraft.
Thesis main points:
Analysis of state of the art and definition of the system requirements
Definition of the determination strategies and the control techniques considering the constraints deriving from the actual small satellite technology
Definition of the mathematical problem and definition of the detailed simulation models, including dynamics and kinematics aspects and uncertainties on the system elements
Building of an advanced simulation environment that enables the assessment of the system performance and the verification of the requirements
Analysis and comparison of the simulation results and selection of the best strategies
Note: the thesis is carried out in the framework of the SROC project funded by the European Space Agency
Required skills Space system design, Guidance Navigation and Control system design, Control Engineering skills.
