Rapid slewing of flexible space structures
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-09)
This thesis addresses the problem of computing rapid slew maneuvers for a spacecraft antenna mounted on a double-axis gimbal with elastic joints. The performance of the system can be enhanced by designing antenna maneuvers ...
Increasing slew performance of reaction wheel attitude control systems
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09)
This thesis explores the physical and mathematical limitations of two common attitude control systems: one based on reaction wheels and another based on control moment gyroscopes (CMGs). The dynamics are derived from first ...
