DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ed98698b/orbital_mechanics) has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Orbital Mechanics and Formation Flying: A Digital Control Perspective" to their offering.

“Orbital Mechanics and Formation Flying: A Digital Control Perspective”

Aimed at students, faculty and professionals in the aerospace field, this book provides practical information on the development, analysis, and control of a single and/or multiple spacecraft in space. This book is divided into two major sections: single and multiple satellite motion. The first section analyses the orbital mechanics, orbital perturbations, and attitude dynamics of a single satellite around the Earth. Using the knowledge of a single satellite motion, the translation of a group of satellites called formation flying or constellation is explained. Formation flying has been one of the main research topics over the last few years and this book explains different control approaches to control the satellite attitude motion and/or to maintain the constellation together.

The control schemes are explained in the discrete domain such that it can be easily implemented on the computer onboard the satellite. The key objective of the book is to show the reader the practical and the implementation process in the discrete domain.

Key features:

- explains the orbital motion and principal perturbations affecting the satellite

- uses the Ares V rocket as an example to explain the attitude motion of a space vehicle

- develops the classical, intelligent, and adaptive control schemes in the discrete domain

- formulates and solves the deployment, reconfiguration, and station keeping for a constellation in the discrete domain

Key Topics Covered:

Introduction

Two body orbital motion

Orbital perturbations in the two body motion

Frame rotations and quaternions

Rigid body motion

Environmental and actuator torques

Continuous and digital control systems

Example

Formation flying

Deployment procedure for a constellation

Reconfiguration procedure for a constellation
