Abstract

In this paper, the Multiple Sliding Surface Guidance (MSSG) algorithm has been implemented and simulated to verify the ability to target the insertion point of a suitable halo orbit in the vicinity of the Sun-Earth libration points. Based on Higher-Order Sliding Control (HOSC) theory, the proposed MSSG algorithm computes an acceleration command that target a specified state by considering only knowledge of the current and desired position and velocity. Results show that the guidance scheme is able to successfully target a suitable state for proper orbital insertion. Furthermore, it will be shown how the algorithm can be used to target the L1 point in the Sun-Earth system. A detailed study has also been performed to investigate the guidance performances as function of the guidance parameters. The global stability of the proposed guidance scheme is proven using Lyapunov-based approach.
