To increase mission return, utilizing two or more spacecraft instead of one may sometimes be superior. This is especially true when a large spaceborne instrument needs to be created through larger and configurable baselines, such as telescopes and interferometers. However, coordinating the alignment of the individual components of such a...

Precision formation flying missions require formation acquisition and maintenance through the interactions among spacecraft by the inter-satellite communication and relative navigation. This paper analyses the dedicated system constraints of the network architecture for precision formation flying missions. The critical time issue and the...

Precise formation flying (PFF) missions require formation acquisition and maintenance through interactions among spacecraft by inter-satellite communication and relative navigation. That requires the network architecture to satisfy dedicated system constraints of time-criticality for updating navigation measurements and flexibility for...
