GUIDANCE the right direction ORBIT GNC(FUNCTIONS) 1. Orbit

GUIDANCENAVIGATION AND CONTROL·        TheGNC functions includes guidence algorithms ,navigation filters, controllers,and possibly actuator managment functions.·        Threemain functions on board a spacecraft1.      Navigation/where am i: determiningthe vehicle’s position and velocity or orbital elements as a function of time(attitude, angular velocity, orientation).

2.      Guidence/ where to go:defining theoptimal state vectors of the vehicle as a function of time.3.      Control /how to get there:the processof deriving the commands to match the current and optimal vehicle statevectors.·        Mainly2 subsystems 1.      Attitude GNC2.      Orbit GNCATTITUDEGNC(functions)1.      Payload pointing2.
