Abstract

In this paper, leader-follower formation flying problems based on the periodic orbits of the Hill-Clohessy-Wiltshire equations and Tschauner-Hempel equations are considered. the control input is assumed to be impulsive. For a given final relative orbit, the admissible controls are feedback controls such that the follower tracks the final orbit asymptotically. The main performance index is the ΔV which is proportional to the fuel consumption. The number of impulses is fixed, but the impulse time is arbitrary and varied. The optimal location of impulse times is sought numerically. Simulation results for a reconfiguration problem are given.
