There is a growing need for interplanetary travel technology development. There are hence plans to build deep space human habitats, communication relays, and fuel depots. These can be classified as large space structures. To build large structures, it is essential that these are modular in nature. With modularization of structures, it becomes essential that interconnection of modules is developed. Docking systems enable interconnection of modules. The state-of-the-art technology in docking systems is the Power Data Grapple Fixture (PDGF), used on the International Space Station by the Canadarm2 robotic arm to grapple, latch onto and provide power to the object it …
