For the simulation of rigid spacecraft manipulator dynamics there exists efficient recursive software. Extension of this software for the simulation of flexible spacecraft-manipulator dynamics would have important advantages. In this paper the method of Equivalent Flexibility Modelling (EFM) is outlined. Each flexible body is re-modelled as a...

The Hermes Manipulation System (HERA) will be an important part of the Hermes space plane system. The HERA is a sophisticated space manipulator system, which has to perform tasks ranging from capture and berthing to tool operation in various operational modes from fully automatic to purely manual. The HERA system main contractor is Fokker Space ...

Four well-known formalisms for mathematical modelling of the dynamics of a spacecraft/manipulator system are derived from the unifying d'Alembert principle. The Newton-Euler formalism is discussed in more detail, as it allows efficient numerical simulation. An algorithm is defined for the control of the manipulator end-effector motion in...
