The high‐resolution standard proximity sensor (HRSPS) is a true contact‐less eddy current displacement measuring system qualified for high‐reliability satellite applications. It is also available in an 883B flight version for micro‐gravity and for the International Space Station (ISS). Three...
The measurement of geomagnetic field can provide a reliable and economical basis for attitude and orbit information of low earth orbiting satellite. Because the earth's magnetic field is a function of position, and its measurement on the orbit are fully observable, orbit estimation can be...
Several spacecraft beam‐propulsion concepts are introduced. “Mesoparticle beam propulsion” uses a collimated beam of mesoscopic particles, very roughly on the order of a nanogram mass each. Molecular nanotechnologies may permit the inclusion of entire guidance systems in each particle. “Micro...
Spacecraft formation flying is a key technology for future astronautics. The relative dynamics of formation flying in eccentric orbits is studied, and the relative motion between spacecrafts is analyzed in this paper. Based on the two‐body problem, the extension of Hill equations is achieved and...
Small hybrid rocket motors using solid propellant and gaseous oxidizer are becoming increasingly popular as a propulsion device. This paper describes the development of a one‐dimensional flow model for the design of a small rocket motor. Combustion of polyethylene as solid propellant with oxygen...
