Simulation Framework for Orbit Propagation and Space Trajectory Visualization
In this paper, an interactive tool for simulation of satellites dynamics and autonomous spacecraft guidance is presented. Different geopotential models for orbit propagation of Earth-orbiting satellites are provided, which ...
An evolutionary discretized Lambert approach for optimal long-range rendezvous considering impulse limit
In this paper, an approach is presented for finding the optimal long-range space rendezvous in terms of fuel and time, considering limited impulse. In this approach , the Lambert problem is expanded towards a discretized ...
Optimal multi-impulse space rendezvous considering limited impulse using a discretized Lambert problem combined with evolutionary algorithms
In this paper, a direct approach is presented to tackle the multi-impulse rendezvous problem considering the impulse limit. Particularly, the standard Lambert problem is extended toward several consequential orbit transfers ...
Spacecraft Trajectory Optimization: A review of Models, Objectives, Approaches and Solutions
This article is a survey paper on solving spacecraft trajectory optimization problems. The solving process is decomposed into four key steps of mathematical modeling of the problem, defining the objective functions, ...
Evolutionary algorithms to optimize low-thrust trajectory design in spacecraft orbital precession mission
In space environment, perturbations make the spacecraft lose its predefined orbit in space. One of these undesirable changes is the in-plane rotation of space orbit, denominated as orbital precession. To overcome this ...
