GPS navigation based proximity operations by the PRISMA satellites-flight results
2011 (English)In: 4th International Conference on Spacecraft Formation Flying Missions & Technologies, 2011, 18-20 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents flight results and lessons learned from the Proximity FormationFlying experiment developed and executed by SSC on the Swedish PRISMA mission.The paper will cover the design, flight results, operational aspects as well as lessonslearned. Proximity operations in PRISMA consist of forced-motion flight of Mangoaround Tango in the ranges from about 50 m down to 2 m. The forced motion is eitherdirectly around Tango or around a virtual structure defined about the Tango spacecraft.The purpose of the virtual structure is to mimic the circumflight about a large object withappendages and no-fly zones, such as the International Space Station (ISS).
