A distributed attitude control law for formation flying based on the Cucker-smale model Paita, Fabrizio; Gómez Muntané, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep (2014)
Open AccessIn this paper we consider the attitude synchronization problem for a swarm of spacecrafts flying in formation. Starting from previous works on consensus dynamics, we construct a distributed attitude control law and derive ...
Novel consensus strategies applied to spacecraft formation flight Paita, Fabrizio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-09-04)
Open AccessIn this thesis we consider the problem of developing distributed control strategies for spacecraft formation flying. In light of possible interferometric applications, the study is conducted in two different contexts: ...
On the cucker-smale flocking model applied to a formation moving in a central force field around the Earth Paita, Fabrizio; Gomez Muntaner, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep (2013)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThe Cucker – Smale (CS) flocking model is an interacting particles control system where every particle adjusts its dynamics according to a weighted average between its velocity and those of the other elements of the ...
On the rotational Cucker-Smale model: optimal formation configuration and adaptive gains design Paita, Fabrizio; Gómez Muntané, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep (2015)
Restricted access - publisher's policyIn the present paper we consider the attitude synchronization problem for a formation of spacecraft flying in free space. In particular, we consider the same control laws of  and we expand on the results presented there. ...
