This article investigates the robust adaptive learning control for space robots with target capturing. Based on the momentum conservation theory, the impact dynamics is constructed to derive the relationship of generalized velocity in the pre-impact and post-impact phase. Considering the nonlinear dynamics with contact impact, the robust control using nonsingular terminal sliding mode (NTSM) and fast NTSM is designed to achieve the fast realization of the desired states. Furthermore, for the unknown dynamics of the combination system after capturing a target, the adaptive learning control is developed based on neural network and disturbance observer. Through the serial-parallel estimation model, the prediction error is constructed for the update of adaptive law. The system signals involved in the Lyapunov function are proved to be bounded and the sliding mode surface converges in finite time. Simulation studies present the desired tracking and learning performance.
