Abstract : "This paper investigates the problem of relative motion control for spacecraft rendezvous on an arbitrary
elliptical orbit. The simplified dynamic model describing the relative motion between the chaser spacecraft and the
target spacecraft is established via using transformed variables. Due to the presence of time variant parameters in
this novel model, robust control scheme and adaptive control scheme are designed to solve the rendezvous problem.
Theoretical analyses and simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods."
