Coordinated Attitude Control of Satellites in Formation
In this chapter we derive a coordinated control scheme to control relative attitude of a formation of satellites using methods from nonlinear control theory. We first develop control laws for the leader satellite, and then propose an adaptive synchronizing control law for the follower. Global convergence of the synchronization errors are proven mathematically and the resulting controllers are simulated in presence of environmental disturbances and measurement noise.
