Interaction of the Space Shuttle on-orbit autopilot with tether dynamics
Author and Affiliation:
Bergmann, Edward V.(Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Inc., Cambridge, MA, United States)
Abstract: The effect of Orbiter flight control on tether dynamics is studied by simulation. Open-loop effects of Orbiter jet firing on tether dynamics are shown, and the potential for closed-loop interaction between tether dynamics and Orbiter flight control is determined. The significance of these effects on Orbiter flight control and tether control is assessed.
