Abstract:

A technology gap exists in verifying performance of large space systems. To fill that gap the proposed program seeks to develop and validate an efficient pre-flight performance verification methodology. The approach involves selective component testing along with analysis of subsystem interactions. The methodology exploits MEOP Maximum EntropyOptimal Projection Control System Design and Majorant Robustness Analysis. The approach is formulated for several representative large space systems and experimentally verified on a 3-meter diameter multi-hex panel ground-based active control testbed.
