Abstract

The literature review manuscript focuses mainly on five topics, which are related to the space tether control researches: (1) space tether dynamical modelling; (2) tether deployment and retrieval; (3) trajectory generation and control; (4) tether attitude and motion control; (5) tether vibration control and dynamical simulations. With the basic aim of establishing useful sources of fundamental researches in the literature, and high-lighting the previous control methods developed, this paper attempts to provide a contextualised source of references for the further space tether dynamics and control studies.
