Guidance and navigation for rendezvous with an uncooperative target
Progress in Flight Dynamics, Guidance, Navigation, and Control – Volume 10
This paper presents a guidance strategy for a rendezvous with an uncooperative target. In the applied design reference mission, a spiral approach is commanded ensuring a collision-free relative orbit due to e/i-vector separation. The dimensions of the relative orbit are successively reduced by -v commands which at the same time improve the observability of the relative state. The navigation is based on line-of-sight measurements. The relative state is estimated by an extended Kalman ¦lterdoi:10.1051/eucass/201810003 fatcat:wcxasclqanbujcqfh3do7j635u
