Abstract:

The volume represents the results of various independent analyses in those areas of space dynamics which are associated with the Aerospace Environment Simulation System ASESS. They are included here, in appendix fashion, with the feeling that they will be of value in completing some of the gates or control openings in the Monitor System presented in Volume I AD-600 186. Included is an Orbit Determination Scheme, which employs advanced techniques in the area of maximum likelihood, as well as Space Force Effectiveness and Satellite Inspector models which provide mission analysis capability. In addition, an Advanced Energy Management System for Reentry Vehicles is reviewed together with a discussion on orbital rendezvous and docking, both summarizing state-ofthe-art analyses in these areas. Finally, a technical discussion is included on the problem of Geocentric Transfer and Rendezvous. It should be noted that no direct linkage exists, either between Volume I and II or between the individual appendices. Each problem outlined, is of sufficient magnitude, however, to warrant consideration in connection with ASESS. Author
