Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid increase in space system scale, task execution capabilities, and user demand has led to research hotspots in spacecraft dynamics modeling, task planning, and collaborative control. A better series of dynamics models can calculate more accurate position and attitude among spacecrafts and ground targets; a set of higher efficient planning algorithms can obtain more economical, secure and validate usage of spacecraft; and a range of precise control methods can make the task execution more accurately. There are many symmetry issues, mathematics theory issues, and algorithm issues in dynamics, planning and control of spacecraft. Consequently, to make future spacecrafts more accurately and efficiently, the challenges must be faced, including mega-constellation dynamics modeling, large-scale spacecraft task planning, satellite swarm control, ground operation system design, inter-satellite routes, earth observation requirement handling, and other related techniques.

This planned Special Issue of Symmetry aims to provide a forum for scholars, students, and industrial engineers to exchange the latest techniques on dynamics modeling, task planning, and satellite swarm control and will discuss the vital issues, challenges and possible future trends in spacecraft and its related systems. Accepted papers for this Special Issue are expected to provide the latest developments in dynamics, planning and control approaches, especially new theoretical results with practical applications. We would like to invite scholars to contribute with their research by employing symmetry or asymmetry concepts in their methods and methodologies, including, but not limited to, the areas listed below.

Submit your paper and select the Journal “Symmetry” and the Special Issue “Advances in Dynamics, Planning and Control of Spacecraft and Related Systems” via the MDPI submission system. Papers will be published on a rolling basis and we will be pleased to receive your submission once you have finished it.

This paper focuses on addressing the adaptive fuzzy fixed-time issue for a class of nonlinear systems with uncertainty functions and mismatched disturbances. Fuzzy logical systems are utilized for identifying unknown functions. Additionally, to tackle challenges posed by mismatched disturbances, disturbance observers are constructed based on the backstepping method. Utilizing the adding one power integrator approach and the fixed-time control method, this paper introduces a fixed-time adaptive fuzzy control algorithm. Notably, this algorithm accommodates the presence of unknown mismatched disturbances and nonlinear functions. The paper establishes, through the application of the Lyapunov stability theory, that the designed adaptive fixed-time fuzzy control algorithm ensures practical fixed-time stability for the resulting closed-loop systems. Finally, the effectiveness of the derived strategy is demonstrated through an illustrative example involving two cases. Full article
