Event Details

A simple and elegant algorithm to populate a cluster around a center satellite was derived based on the concept of wheel formation in the same orbit plane. The algorithm of using small eccentricity vector separation to place those satellites on single or multiple wheel-shaped sub-orbits r of at least 10 companion satellites gives desirable relative motion to the center satellite with safe separation distance among all the companion satellites. Numerical integration results show that with properly synchronized initial semi-major axis of each companion spacecraft with identical design, the desired wheel formation can last for months without stationkeeping at GPS and GEO altitudes. A set of optimized control strategies were developed and simulated for keeping the satellites in close formation. Without out-of-plane deviations and control, the cost of fuel consumption is minimized. This generalized wheel cluster formation can be applied to all types of orbits, such as LEO, MEO, GEO and HEO (Molniya, GTO and Tundra), as well as for artificial satellites orbiting other planets.

 

 

 Victor Lin is a Sr. Project Leader at The Aerospace Corporation where he is involved in the design, implementation, and use of large-scale, system-of-systems simulations to analyze the performance and utility of space, ground, and related systems for DoD, NRO, Civil, and Commercial Customers. Previously, he led a modeling & simulation department of several technical staff members and has performed concept development and system engineering for satellite systems. He has led various architecture studies, requirements development and technical management of enhanced integrity capability for the GPS modernization programs. Prior to Aerospace, he held technical lead positions for Innovics (3G WCDMA startup), Rockwell Scientific Company, and Qualcomm. Victor completed his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering at Cornell University, and earned his Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from UCLA. He has published several conference papers and holds one patent. Victor regularly volunteers for the IEEE and serves as a mentor in the community. He has previously chaired the local IEEE Communication Society.
