    The attitude dynamical equations of flexible spacecraft with solar panels were established,and the attitude kinematic equations were described by modified Rodrigues parameters (MRPs)in orderto preventthe singularity of thelarge angle maneuver. A variable universeself-tuning fuzzy PID controller was proposed for model uncertainties and environmental disturbances. A new shrinkable factor was designed, and it was easy to calculate and could achieve the accuracy. Numerical simulation based on Matlab/Simulink shows that the response of the variable universeself-tuning fuzzy PID controller are 350s fasterthan that ofthe conventional PID and fuzzy PID controllers,and thatit has no vershoot and can realize the effective control of attitude maneuver and effectively suppress the vibration of solar panels.

    A Data Association Method of Double Fence Radar Based on Estimating Doppler Velocity
    XING Dong-Xu, LIU Zhong-Gui
    2014, 34 (6):  8.  doi: 10.3780/j.issn.1000-758X.2014.06.002
    Abstract ( 1206 )   PDF (810KB) ( 960 )   Save
    The observation data association of the same object before computing the initial orbit is a crucial problem for the double fence radar system. An estimating Doppler velocity method was proposed, which was independent of initial orbit determination with iteration computation, and a corresponding data ssociation rule was designed. The simulation analysis shows that the exactness of the proposed data association rule is similar with that of the rule which is dependent on the Doppler velocity computed by the orbit determination, but the computing time is less than 10% of the latter one.

    Tether control of the momentum exchange tether assisted interplanetary orbital capture in deep space exploration was studied. Firstly, the dynamic model of a detector system in a hyper bolic flying orbit was established. Secondly,the consistent condition of orbital capture and the optimum tether cut off point were derived to analyze the dynamic characteristics.Finally, considering the sub detectors post capture orbit maneuver requirements and limitation of the tether deployment/retrieval velocity, a new optimal control problem was proposed and numerically solved by the simulated annealing algorithm.Simulation results show that the tether orientation is appropriate at the cut off point and will be beneficial for the following orbit maneuver,and the  maximum tether deployment/retrieval velocity is about 30m/s.

    The coupling between spacecraft attitude and orbit movement in an integrated model based on the spiral theory was analyzed.The method parameters analysis method was used,which changed the coupling parameters successively,to get the curves and the laws of coupling terms.The validity of theoretical analysis was proved.To verify the coupling impact on the control effect,the control law was designed.The result shows that the coupling seriously affects the attitude and the orbit of relative motion,and the attitude influences the orbit motion a lot,and can converge easily,while the orbit has little effect on the attitude.

    radiation loss and lower isolation capability of the strip-line embedded in LTCC substrate.
