Abstract

Whereas most of the previous studies treat free-floating space robots, this investigation deals with a space robot subjected to a tether tension force. The system is composed of a main satellite in orbit, a tether, and a space robot with a manipulator consisting of two connected links. This study explores coupled motions of the space robot, tether, and main satellite in a gravity-gradient field. Typical dynamics and control results obtained numerically are compared with those for a free-floating space robot.
