Fanizza, Vincenzo (author)
Performing crucial activities for space exploration, e.g., debris removal and on-orbit servicing, systems for Rendezvous and Proximity Operations (RPO) are required to be autonomous and scalable. Within this context, learning-based relative navigation has gained significant traction due to the latest advancements in AI and the cost-effectiveness...

Salas Lasala, María (author)
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is a global array of telescopes that employs Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) techniques to image the event horizon of black holes. To overcome the limitations of ground-based telescopes, this thesis explores the mission concept involving a two-satellite constellation of space-borne telescopes deployed...

Activities in outer space have entered a new era of growth, fostering human development and improving key Earth-based applications such as remote sensing, navigation, and telecommunication. The recent creation of SpaceX's Starlink constellation as well as the steep increase in CubeSat launches are expected to revolutionize the way we use space...

Stolk, Toon Stolk (author)
There is no denying that the ever-increasing demand in space endeavours calls for more sustainable exploitation of the space environment. Approaches to mitigate space debris, such as ADR, are frequently suggested. Most of these proposals suggest a single sensor approach to provide accurate and continuous shape and pose estimation of the target....

Formation control (FC) of multi-agent systems plays a critical role in a wide variety of fields. In the absence of absolute positioning, agents in FC systems rely on relative position measurements with respect to their neighbors. In distributed filter design literature, relative observation models are comparatively unexplored, and in FC...

To mitigate the growth of space debris, it is vital that Active Debris Removal (ADR) is performed in the near future. Since ADR will require robust relative navigation, future spacecraft should be marked with fiducial markers that are robustly extracted from an image taken by a chaser spacecraft. To prevent the restriction of robotic movement...

van der Marel, Martijn (author)
Formation control problems consider a set of mobile agents with the underlying goal of attaining and maintaining a state where the relative positions of agents are stable in accordance with the desired configuration.<br/>Navigation for formation control is typically achieved through localization in a global reference frame, e.g., via GNSS....

Guindal Martínez, Alvaro (author)
The first close-up image of a black hole has been taken recently by means of a network of high-resolution telescopes situated all around the globe, also known as Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). In that regard, this Master Thesis reviews the feasibility of establishing accurate inter-satellite baselines in a two-satellite constellation of...

Woicke, S. (author)
Many successful landings have been performed on celestial bodies such as Mars, the Moon, Venus and others. All of these had in common that they were designed such that they had to land in regions, which were supposedly free of any hazards or that a certain level of risk was accepted. However, while rocks and other geological features are...

To increase mission return, utilizing two or more spacecraft instead of one may sometimes be superior. This is especially true when a large spaceborne instrument needs to be created through larger and configurable baselines, such as telescopes and interferometers. However, coordinating the alignment of the individual components of such a...

Precision formation flying missions require formation acquisition and maintenance through the interactions among spacecraft by the inter-satellite communication and relative navigation. This paper analyses the dedicated system constraints of the network architecture for precision formation flying missions. The critical time issue and the...

Precise formation flying (PFF) missions require formation acquisition and maintenance through interactions among spacecraft by inter-satellite communication and relative navigation. That requires the network architecture to satisfy dedicated system constraints of time-criticality for updating navigation measurements and flexibility for...
