Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Using the theory of neighboring optimal feedback control (NOFC), we can significantly reduce the cost of control schemes generated by the method of direct collocation and nonlinear programming (DCNLP). Combining these two methods, the latter gives a robust algorithm to solve Two-Point-Boundary-Value Problems (TPBVP) and the former suggests an algorithm to manage the deviations from the nominal trajectory caused by small perturbations. An example of perturbation guidance for injection into orbit using DCNLP and NOFC is used to illustrate the method and its value.
