Abstract
The planning algorithm to calculate a satellite’s optimal slew trajectory with a given keep-out constraint is proposed. An energy-optimal formulation is proposed for the Space-based multiband astronomical Variable Objects Monitor Mission Analysis and Planning (MAP) system. The innovative point of the proposed planning algorithm lies in that the satellite structure and control limitation are not considered as optimization constraints but are formulated into the cost function. This modification is able to relieve the burden of the optimizer and increases the optimization efficiency, which is the major challenge for designing the MAP system. Mathematical analysis is given to prove that there is a proportional mapping between the formulation and the satellite controller output. Simulations with different scenarios are given to demonstrate the efficiency of the developed algorithm.
