Abstract: A precision landing guidance design for the Mars powered descent phase is proposed based on model predictive control (MPC) approach. Dynamics model used for the formulation are convexificated and linearized to adopt the convex optimization technique, which has been suggested by researchers of Jet Propulsion Laboratory. To employ the receding horizon frame and reduce the number of control inputs, the convex optimization problem is augmented with Laguerre functions. To represent... Read More
