Event Title

CEU Session #4 - Space Robotics for On-Orbit Servicing and Space Debris Removal

Presenter Information

Dr. Markus Wilde

Start Date

5-6-2019 7:30 AM

End Date

5-6-2019 8:30 AM

Description

The next ten years will see an unprecedented increase in the number of spacecraft deployed in Earth orbit and the number of commercial ventures operating space assets. The large increase in the number of spacecraft and the large increase in the commercial value of space will lead to renewed interest in robotic on-orbit servicing (OOS) and active debris removal (ADR). The lecture will provide a brief overview over the history of crewed and robotic OOS and discuss the missions planned for the near future. It will then proceed to identify the critical enabling technologies for a future, operational OOS and ADR infrastructure, discuss the technical challenges and present promising concepts and demonstrated technologies that can make routine OOS and ADR a possibility. The focus will be on robotics technologies and spacecraft guidance, navigation and control systems.
