During the robotic capture of a target object on orbit, accidental contacts may happen. During contacts, momentum is transferred to the system, causing a drift of the space robot in the inertial space. When no remediation is taken, the arm might converge to singularity or workspace limit within seconds, compromising the capture operation. This article presents a method to control the end-effector while simultaneously extracting any accumulated momentum in the system to cancel the drift. A feature of the method is that external actuators are only used for the momentum extraction and not to counterbalance the manipulator control forces. The control is validated with experiments using a Hardware-In-the- Loop (HIL) robotic simulator composed of a 7DOF (Degrees Of Freedom) arm mounted on a 6DOF moving base.
