AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT RENDEZVOUS WITH A TUMBLING OBJECT: APPLIED REACHABILITY ANALYSIS AND GUIDANCE AND CONTROL STRATEGIES
(Monterey, CA; Naval Postgraduate School, 2018-09)
Rendezvous and proximity operations are an essential component of both military and commercial space missions and are rising in complexity. This dissertation presents an applied reachability analysis and develops a ...
Feasibility study of an aerial manipulator interacting with a vertical wall
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-06)
Modeling and control of aerial manipulators are presented in this study. An aerial manipulator is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) equipped with a robotic arm. Aerial manipulators have potential for many applications, such ...
Development of a locomotion interface for portable virtual environment systems using an inertial/magnetic sensor-based system and a ranging measurement system
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-03)
This dissertation describes the development of an integrated locomotion interface for building self-contained, portable, and immersive virtual environment (VE) systems. Such VE systems do not rely on any infrastructure ...
A personal navigation system based on inertial and magnetic field measurements
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010-09)
This work describes the development and testing of a personal navigation system (PNS) for use during normal walking on level ground surfaces. A shoe-worn miniature inertial/magnetic measurement unit (IMMU), which is ...
Distributed autonomous control of multiple spacecraft during close proximity operations
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007., 2007-12)
This research contributes to multiple spacecraft control by developing an autonomous distributed control algorithm for close proximity operations of multiple spacecraft systems, including rendezvous and docking scenarios. ...
Inertial and magnetic tracking of limb segment orientation for inserting humans into synthetic environments.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-12)
Current motion tracking technologies fail to provide accurate wide area tracking of multiple users without interference and occlusion problems. This research proposes to overcome current limitations using nine-axis magnetic/ ...
Design and evaluation of an integrated, self-contained GPS/INS shallow-water AUV navigation system (SANS)
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-06)
The main problem addressed by this research is to find an alternative to the use of large and/or expensive equipment required by conventional navigation systems to accurately determine the position of an Autonomous Underwater ...
