Conference paper


The problem of in-flight control of spacecraft is of interest today in connection with the development of interplanetary communications. This problem also features some degree of independent significance from the standpoint of automatic control theory, since the latter theory contains a fairly complete and at the same time quite simple model of finite-state control processes, enabling us to study and understand many of the aspects of processes of this type.
