Under funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Carleton University’s Spacecraft Robotics and Control Laboratory partners with the Guidance, Navigation and Control Department at MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Inc. (MDA) on an industrial R&D project related to the development of guidance and adaptive control techniques enabling the ISS to perform robust robotic capture maneuvers of free-flying spacecraft (e.g., Dragon, Cygnus, and HTV vehicles). The new guidance and control methodologies will be experimentally validated on MDA’s Space Station Portable Operations Training Simulator (SPOTS); a high- fidelity multibody flexible dynamic simulation facility namely used by the Canadian Space Agency to support various ISS robotic operations.
