Abstract

The problem of planning the space vehicle motion through trajectories with obstacles was discussed. A motion premitive-based planner with rapidly exploring random trees (RRT) was used to analyze the time-varying obstacles in the trajectory. The method was applied to analyze the spacecraft landing on an idealized asteroid. Analysis shows that the method consumed a runtime of less than three minutes and was found to be very reliable.
