Distributed finite-time attitude dynamic tracking control for multiple rigid spacecraft

Long Ma; Shicheng Wang; Haibo Min; Yuan Liu; Shouyi Liao IET Control Theory & Applications, 2015

In this study, the authors study the distributed finite-time attitude dynamic tracking control problem for multiple rigid spacecraft systems with a single dynamic leader under directed graphs. By constructing a sliding-mode estimator for each follower, they remove the requirement of the angular acceleration information. Based upon a sliding-mode observation vector, the distributed input torques are designed to guarantee that not ...


Time and Space Partitioning in Spacecraft Avionics

James Windsor; Kjeld Hjortnaes 2009 Third IEEE International Conference on Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology, 2009

This paper will describe the benefits of incorporating software time and space partitioning (TSP), based upon the aeronautic IMA concept, into the spacecraft avionics architecture to manage the growth of mission functions implemented in the on-board software. The paper addresses how TSP can be used to safely integrate applications of different criticality and security classifications, and how incremental validation is ...


Spacecraft Surface-Charging Risk Index in Auroral Region

Xuejie Meng; Dong Chen; Liqin Shi; Siqing Liu; Shanqiang Chen IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2017

High-level spacecraft surface charging, which is frequently observed in the auroral region, may lead to electrostatic discharges and result in significant damage to the satellite. In this paper, we present preliminary results on the relationship between low earth orbit surface-charging events and the geomagnetic activity indices. The surface-charging events in the auroral regions are identified and listed based on precipitating ...


An Exploration of Tiled Architectures for Space Applications

Peter M. Kogge; Megan Vance 2009 Third IEEE International Conference on Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology, 2009

For many reasons, the chip technology for spacecraft computing has lagged commercial systems by decades. Equally disconcerting, however, has been a similar lag in the computer architectures used. This paper will look at an emerging class of multicore processor architectures, called ldquotiled,rdquo extrapolate what they might look like in the future, and how they might be adapted to space applications. ...


The J3 SCR Model Applied to Resonant Converter Simulation

R. L. Avant; F. C. Lee Telecommunications Energy Conference, 1983. INTELEC '83. Fifth International, 1983

The J3 SCR model is a continuous topology computer model for the SCR. Its circuit analog and Parameter estimation procedure are uniformly applicable to popular computer aided design and analysis programs such as SPICE2 and SCEPTRE. The circuit analog is based on the intrinsic three PN junction structure of the SCR. The parameter estimation procedure requires only manufacturer's specification sheet ...

  • Example of Response Estimation

    This is the first full exposition in print of a subject in whose development over the past fifteen years the author has been a prime participant. As an approach to the study of mechanical vibrations, statistical energy analysis (SEA) has found new applications and adherents with each passing year. The name SEA was coined to emphasize the essential feature of the approach: "Statistical" indicates that the dynamical systems under study are presumed to be drawn from statistical populations or ensembles in which the distribution of the parameters is known. "Energy" denotes the primary variable of interest. "Analysis" is used to underscore the fact that SEA is a general framework of methods rather than a particular technique.Vibration is a ubiquitous problem for mechanical engineers, especially those concerned with the design of aircraft, spacecraft launch vehicles, ships, and similar structures composed of such elements as plates and beams. SEA provides the designer with a method for estimating the response characteristics of such structures to vibratory excitations, from which he can predict the potential for structural fatigue, component failure, and human discomfort caused by noise or excessive vibration levels. SEA is particularly appropriate in applications involving relatively large and lightweight structures, such as those designed for aerospace use. These statistical models are also helpful to mechanical designers who are charged with making environmental and vibratory response estimates at a stage in a project whese structural detail is not yet known. Moreover, SEA provides an approach to a number of vibration problems that cannot, from a practical viewpoint, be solved by classical methods.

    This technological fantasy, the product of the MIT Students System Project and the inspiration for the 1979 film "Meteor," presents a plan for avoiding a hypothetical collision between Earth and the Apollo asteroid, Icarus, which sweeps by every nineteen years within a few million miles (a near-miss in astronomical terms). Collision with a four billion-ton rock would create a catastrophe equal to the destructive power of half a trillion tons of TNT.To prevent tidal waves from washing away the coasts of North America and Europe and shock waves from fracturing the earth's substructure, the Project Icarus plan calls for six 100-megaton hydrogen bombs to be ready for liftoff in sequence from the Kennedy Space Center by six Saturn V rockets in an attempt to push the asteroid off course or to smash it into harmless debris. Clearly, money is no object; all the financial resources of the country are assumed available to the crack Project Icarus team. But time and accuracy are essential.The description of the frantic project schedule from go-ahead to impact includes selection and modification of the launch vehicle and spacecraft; "design" of the nuclear warhead and prediction of its interaction with the asteroid in space; guidance and control of the spacecraft on its critical intercept trajectory; development of an intercept monitoring satellite to gather scientific data from the asteroid and the explosion; the tight management and rigid PERT schedule; and the economic impact of the project.How close to Earth will Icarus's eccentric orbit carry it next time? What are the chances of some other, as yet undiscovered, asteroid -- or worse, a random meteor -- making its way straight for Earth? The MIT team's plan may yet be put to the test.
