Abstract [en]

The fundamental objective of the PRISMA mission is to respond to the increasing demand of autonomous formation flying and on-orbit servicing technology through the in-flight demonstration of novel guidance, navigation and control (GNC) techniques. This paper addresses one of the primary experiments conducted in the frame of the PRISMA mission to demonstrate broad autonomous formation keeping and reconfiguration capabilities on a routine basis using GPS navigation, relative orbital elements, and impulsive control. After a brief introduction of the adopted formation flying concept and its key algorithms, the paper focuses on the experiment planning, operations and its performance in orbit. The obtained results show the high readiness of the developed spaceborne GNC technology and pave the way for its adoption in future advanced multi-satellite missions for remote sensing.
