Abstract

This paper presents some of the preliminary results of a study into the dynamics and control of rotating deep space tethered interferometers. In particular, a new algorithm concept is presented for reorienting a rotating tethered constellation. A lumped-mass tether simulation is use for analysis and design and its results are compared to analytical solutions to the wave equation for verification.
