about

This book systematically describes the concepts and principles for multi-satellite relative motion, passive and near passive formation designs, trajectory planning and control for fuel optimal formation maneuvers, and formation flying maintenance control design. As such, it provides a sound foundation for researchers and engineers in this field to develop further theories and pursue their implementations.

Though satellite formation flying is widely considered to be a major advance in space technology, there are few systematic treatments of the topic in the literature. Addressing that gap, the book offers a valuable resource for academics, researchers, postgraduate students and practitioners in the field of satellite science and engineering.
Dr. Danwei Wang obtained his MSc and PhD degrees from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1985 and 1989 respectively. Currently, he is a full-time professor in the school of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and director of the Centre for E-City in Nanyang Technological University. His research domains include dynamics and c...
