Abstract:

In this paper, the newly developed statistical control theory is revisited to autonomously control the satellite attitude as well as to provide a means of actively attenuating impulsive disturbances caused by servicing dock and space debris. Simulations are performed using several docking and collision scenarios. The simulation results indicate that the existing attitude control system with an innovative and robust statistical controller design shows significant promise for use in attitude hold mode operation despite the presence of impulsive disturbances.
