  • Patent number: 11167867
    Abstract: When calculating a gimbal angle trajectory that satisfies boundary conditions set by an attitude boundary condition setter 2131 of the ground station 21, a gimbal angle trajectory calculator 2132 calculates the gimbal angle trajectory that minimizes a period of an acceleration interval within a range that satisfies driving restrictions of a gimbal, based on a gimbal angle ?0i of a start time and a gimbal angle ?ci of a fixed interval of an attitude change. Also, the gimbal angle trajectory is calculated that minimizes a period of a deceleration interval within a range that satisfies the driving restrictions of the gimbal, based on the gimbal angle ?ci of the fixed interval and a gimbal angle ?fi of a completion time of the attitude change. The obtained ?0i, ?ci, ?fi and an attitude change period ? are transmitted to the artificial satellite as gimbal angle trajectory parameters, and the control moment gyros are controlled based on the gimbal angle trajectory parameters.

  • Patent number: 10752384
    Abstract: A satellite comprises thrusters disposed with the firing directions each facing away from the mass center of satellite and different from each other. A control amount calculator calculates control amounts of the mean orbital elements from the mean orbital elements and the temporal change rates of the mean orbital elements set by an orbit determiner, and the target values. A distributor calculates firing timings and firing amounts of the thrusters for realizing the control amounts of the mean orbital elements by expressing a motion of satellite with orbital elements, solving an equation taking into account coupling of an out-of-plane motion and an in-plane motion due to thruster disposition angles and thruster firing amounts at multiple times, and combining one or more thruster firings controlling mainly an out-of-the-orbit-plane direction and one or more thruster firings controlling mainly an in-the-orbit-plane direction.
