Increasing complexity and costs of satellite missions promote the idea of extending the operational lifetime or improving functionalities/performance of a satellite in orbit instead of simply replacing it by a new one. Further, satellites in orbit can severely be affected by aging or degradation of their components and systems as well as by consumption of available resources. These problems may be solved by satellite on-orbit servicing missions. One of the critical issues of such a mission is to ensure a safe and reliable Rendezvous and Docking (RvD) operation performed autonomously in space. Due to the high risk associated with an RvD operation, it must be carefully analyzed, simulated and verified in detail before the real space mission can be launched. This paper describes a ground-based hardware-in-the-loop RvD simulation facility. Designed and built on 2-decade experience of RvD experiment and testing, this unique, high-fidelity simulation facility is capable of physically simulating the final approach within 25-meter range and the docking/capture process of an on-orbital servicing mission.
