This paper addresses the design of model-based fault diagnosis schemes to detect and isolate faults occurring in the orbiter thrusters of the Mars Sample Return (MSR) mission. The proposed fault diagnosis method is based on a H(0) filter with robust poles assignment to detect quickly any kind of thruster faults and a cross-correlation test to isolate them. Simulation results from the MSR “high-fidelity” nonlinear simulator provided by Thales Alenia Space demonstrate that the proposed method is able to diagnose thruster faults with a detection and isolation delay less than 1.1 s.
