Formation flying is a key technology for many planned space missions that will use multiple spacecraft to perform distributed observations. This paper extends p r o vious work on the design of a highly distributed formation flying control system that uses linear programming to determine minimum fuel trajectories for the spacecraft to remain within some specified tolerance of their "desired points". The primary contribution of this paper is that it presents a direct procedure for calculating thedoi:10.1109/acc.2003.1239846 fatcat:voamzzipdfhsjlbintepmaw4gu
