  • Recent advances in small, low cost satellite technology has generated a renewed interest in formation flying missions. One challenging aspect of satellite formation flying missions is collision free navigation and control. In this paper, novel robust control algorithm using Sliding Mode Control is presented for a threedimensional, high Earth orbit satellite formation scenario. The paper presents the comparison of results of three types of Sliding Mode Controllers (SMC): the first one is a… CONTINUE READING
