Review on solar sail technology

Review on solar sail technology Abstract This paper reviews solar sail trajectory design and dynamics, attitude control, and structural dynamics. Within the area of orbital dynamics, methods relevant to transfer trajectory design and non-Keplerian orbit generation are discussed. Within the area of attitude control, different control strategies, including utilisation of solar radiation pressure and conventional actuators, are discussed. Finally, the methods of modelling structural dynamics during and after deployment are discussed, before considering possible future trends in developing of solar sailing missions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Astrodynamics Springer Journals

Abstract

Abstract This paper reviews solar sail trajectory design and dynamics, attitude control, and structural dynamics. Within the area of orbital dynamics, methods relevant to transfer trajectory design and non-Keplerian orbit generation are discussed. Within the area of attitude control, different control strategies, including utilisation of solar radiation pressure and conventional actuators, are discussed. Finally, the methods of modelling structural dynamics during and after deployment are discussed, before considering possible future trends in developing of solar sailing missions.
