The Synchronized Position Hold Engage and Reorient Experimental Satellites (SPHERES), developed by the MIT Space Systems Laboratory, enable the maturation of control, estimation, and autonomy algorithms for distributed satellite systems, including the relative control of spacecraft required for satellite formation flight. Three free-flyer microsatellites(More)
Starting in 2007 the SPHERES team expanded its research operations aboard the ISS to include algorithms for formation flight systems. Based on the experiences learned by developing complex docking algorithms, the team began research to mature algorithms to perform imaging maneuvers and add autonomy to allow a formation system initialization and safing in(More)
