Förbättring av aktuella simuleringsverktyg för styrning av rymdfarkoster (Swedish)
The aim of this master project is to enhance current Attitude and Orbit Control Systems / Guidance, Navigation and Control simulation tools that are used in the Guidance, Navigation and Control section (TEC-ECN), at the European Space Agency.
Two tools are improved. First, elements are added in a Matlab/Simulink toolbox used to perform quick AOCS/GNC simulations. These elements are related to low-thrust orbital manoeuvres. A simulation template is also created to simulate manoeuvres that independently change each of the orbital elements.
The second tool developed is a Workbook used during Concurrent Engineering sessions by AOCS/GNC specialists. It allows them to size the di_erent actuators for attitude and orbit control, and realise pointing error budgets helping making trade-o_'s between di_erent pieces of hardware.
