Mariner Mark II - Spacecraft control for the 1990's and beyondThe Mariner Mark II reconfigurable modular spacecraft concept will incorporate a Spacecraft Attitude and Articulation Control System of novel design. Attention is presently given to key component technologies that will be used for the first time in the Mariner Mark II; these encompass CCD-based, target-referenced extended body tracking, fiber-optic rate sensing, and momentum compensation for dynamic isolation of payloads. An analysis of star and target body-tracking requirements is presented, together with an account of the precision-pointing platform disturbance rejection properties required.
