Satellite path planning by flatness approach

Abstract : This paper addresses the problem of path planning for a Low Earth Orbit satellite. The main contribution of the paper is a comparison of the flatness approach with more classical linear approaches such as bang-bang and jerk profiles generation. The comparison is performed on satellite benchmark provided by Alcatel Space. The conclusion is that flatness approach allows a reduction of actuator consumption, settling time and oscillations during the tranquilization phase of the manoeuvre.
