Reflects the latest progress on modeling and algorithms of on-orbit operation optimization
Offers a comprehensive presentation of the features and classifications of on-orbit operations optimization, including planning models
Presents multiple solution algorithms according to different optimization requirements and on-line planning requirements
On-orbit operations optimization among multiple cooperative or noncooperative spacecraft, which is often challenged by tight constraints and shifting parameters, has grown to be a hot issue in recent years. The authors of this book summarize related optimization problems into four planning categories: spacecraft multi-mission planning, far-range orbital maneuver planning, proximity relative motion planning and multi-spacecraft coordinated planning. The authors then formulate models, introduce optimization methods, and investigate simulation cases that address problems in these four categories. This text will serve as a quick reference for engineers, graduate students, postgraduates in the fields of optimization research and on-orbit operation mission planning.
