    Master Thesis

    S.Salvi, FLEXIBLE DEVICES FOR ACTIVE SPACE DEBRIS REMOVAL: THE NET SIMULATION TOOL, MSc thesis, Space Engineering (Milan, 2014)

    Design of a complete and physically based mathematical model (NeST), to simulate the Tether-Net ADR system dynamics during the capture and the disposal phases. Reference scenario is the Envisat deorbiting. This work starts from previous concept studies developed at Politecnico di Milano, experimentally tested, but never simulated before. A particular attention is put on the flexible multibody modelling. Noteworthy is the built-in collision detection and contact algorithms, optimized ad-hoc to increase the simulator performance. Further numerical and model optimizations are presented and validated, analyzing their impact on the precision and the benefits on the computational speed. The simulator is finally numerically validated and an intensive analysis campaign is done to characterize the Tether-Net system dynamics, with the ultimate aim of scaled tests in micro gravity environments.

     In this paper, through the exploitation of a multibody dynamics simulation tool (NEST), critical phases as wrapping and towing are analyzed to address the tethered-stack controllability. It is shown how the role of contact modelling is fundamental to describe the coupled dynamics: it is demonstrated how friction between the net and a tumbling target allows reducing its angular motion, stabilizing the system and allowing safer towing operations (in contrast with available simplified multibody simulators).

    M. Lavagna, R. Benvenuto, S. Salvi, NET-BASED PAYLOAD ON BOARD AVUM ENHANCED PLATFORM TO EFFICIENTLY REMOVE LARGE DEBRIS FROM LOW EARTH ORBITS, IAC (Toronto, Oct 2014)

    The paper presents in details the design of a net-based debris capturing payload, to be embarked on an AVUM based chaser, specifically adapted for large satellites removal from LEO. The study run under ESA support, in collaboration with ELV SpA. In particular, it is discussed in details the numerical simulator developed at Politecnico di Milano (NEST and MUST/GAST) to model the net dynamics from its launch to the target wrapping and drive the design of the flexible components in the payload. A multi-body constrained dynamics has been implemented to represent flexible elements. The results obtained are discussed to assess limitations and advantages in exploiting such a high thrust unit for ADR flexible systems. Maturity of the proposed technology and development roadmap are also presented.

    R. Benvenuto, S. Salvi, M. Lavagna, DYNAMICS ANALYSIS AND GNC DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE SYSTEMS FOR SPACE DEBRIS ACTIVE REMOVAL, IAA - DYCOSS (Rome, Feb 2014)

    Via numerical simulations using a multi-body dynamics simulation tool developed at Politecnico di Milano – Department of Aerospace Science and Technology (NEST and MUST/GAST), this paper shows that tethered-net systems are a promising technology to capture and remove space debris and discusses the main difficulties that are likely to take place during capture and disposal phases, particularly from a GNC point of view.

         It is proposed a flexible and feasible architecture for a class of missions aiming at exploring the edge of our solar system in a reasonable time. This paper examines the problem from a strictly engineering point of view, providing parameterized solutions according to the desirable scientific constraints.

    In the paper, a six degrees of freedom multibody dynamics simulator is presented, developed at Politecnico di Milano. Critical phases as impact and wrapping are analyzed by simulation to address the tethered-stack controllability. It is shown how the role of contact modelling is fundamental to describe the coupled dynamics: it is demonstrated, how friction between the net and a tumbling target allows reducing its angular motion, stabilizing the system and allowing safer towing operations. Moreover, the so-called tethered space tug is analyzed: after capture, the two objects are connected by the tethered-net flexible link. The critical modes prevention during this phase, by means of a closed-loop control synthesis, is shown. Finally, the connection between flexible dynamics and capture system design is highlighted, giving engineering answers to most challenging open points to lead to a ready to flight solution.
