Description

In recent years, we have witnessed the resurgence of research activity in large space systems (e.g., solar power satellites, space telescopes, tethered spacecraft systems). Unlike current spacecraft, these large space systems could increasingly carry multiple payloads to achieve different tasks. Therefore, they can have very complex structures and extra-large scale and mass.

However, there are current challenges in terms of dynamics and control for large space systems. These challenges can occur from launch, in-space assembly, and deployment to on-orbit operations. For instance, the problems that can happen are long-term space disturbances, coupling effect between rigid and flexible modes, structural nonlinearity, parameter uncertainty, and control-structure interactions. All these issues have been detrimental to the success of space missions and will continue to be in the future.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of dynamics and control of large space system studies. We highly encourage important contributions from international researchers. Original research and review articles are welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Long-term orbit dynamics
  • Modelling analysis and optimization
  • Orbit determination and autonomous navigation
  • Attitude determination, control, and dynamics
  • Structure deformation and vibration control
  • Parameter identification
  • In-space assembly and construction
  • Space mission design and planning
  • Sensors and actuators for large space systems
  • Novel concepts for space engineering and interdisciplinary applications
