Formation control for multiple vehicles has become an active research area in recent years. Generally there are three approaches to this problem, namely leaderfollowing, behavioral, and virtual structure approaches. In this paper, formation control ideas for multiple spacecraft using virtual structure approach are presented. If there is no formation feedback from spacecraft to the virtual structure, the spacecraft will get out of formation when the virtual structure moves too fast for the… Expand
