Modelling and Optimal Control of a Docking Maneuver with an Uncontrolled Satellite

Abstract : Capturing disused satellites in orbit and their controlled reentry is the aim of the DEOS space mission. Satellites that ran out of fuel or got damaged pose a threat to working projects in orbit. Additionally, the reentry of such objects endangers the population as the place of impact cannot be controlled anymore. This paper demonstrates the modelling of a rendezvous szenario between a controlled service satellite and an uncontrolled target. The situation is modelled via first order ordinary differental equations where a stable target is considered. In order to prevent a collision of the two spacecrafts and to ensure both satellites are docked at the end of the maneuver, additional state constraints, box contraints for the control and a time dependent rendezvous condition for the final time are added. The problem is formulated as an optimal control problem with Bolza type cost functional and solved using a full discretization approach in AMPL/IpOpt. Last, simulation results for capturing a tumbling satellite are given.
