Abstract:

WITH THE ADVENT OF THE SPACE SHUTTLE AND THE ASSOCIATED ENHANCED ACCESSIBILITY OF OUTER SPACE, MORE AUTOMATION OF ROUTINE SPACEFLIGHT OPERATIONS IS DESIRABLE. THIS IS ESPECIALLY SO FOR RELATIVE SPACECRAFT MANEUVER OPERATIONS REQUIRING A HIGH DEGREE OF RELIABILITY AND CREW TIME. THIS PROJECT CONCERNS AN ANALYSIS PROGRAM TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY AND PRACTICALITY OF THE ESSENTIALS OF A UNIQUE SENSOR SYSTEM COMPLEX FOR AUTOMATION OF RENDEZVOUS, DOCKING, STATIONKEEPING AND ORIENTATION OF ONE SPACECRAFT RELATIVE TO ANOTHER. COMPUTER SIMULATION AND ANALYSES WILL BE PERFORMED TO DETERMINE THE KEY SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS. IN ADDITION TO ASSESSING THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT, A PRELIMINARY SYSTEM DESIGN WILL BE PROVIDED AS WELL AS SYSTEM MASS, POWER CONSUMPTION AND SIZE ESTIMATES.
