The objective of this research is to support the modeling and simulation efforts of spacecraft dynamics and control within RVES and RVSV. The research focuses on the autonomous guidance and control of a spacecraft that is approaching a tumbling Resident Space Object (RSO) for close inspection or docking. The research is broken into the following high level tasks.
1.) Problem Formulation and solving for the optimal solution.
2.) Synthesis of sub-optimal controls capable or real-time implementation.
3.) Construction of models and simulations to compare developed controllers.
