  1. Small Business Innovation Research Autonomous Unified Orbit and Attitude Control for Formation Flying using GPS and LQG/LTR Controller Space Products & ApplicationsFairfax VA • INNOVATION • Unified architecture for orbit and attitude control system. • Maintains formation pattern and attitude control using GPS code and phase pseudorange data. • Application of nonlinear feedback control technique to solve the nonlinear attitude dynamics and kinematics problem. • ACCOMPLISHMENTS • Developed ‘leader of the fleet’ reference system for relative navigation using feedback control. • SPA received US Patent No. 6,341,249, Autonomous Unified on-Board Orbit and Attitude Control System for Satellites. • Extending Formation Control to include automated rendezvous and docking capability. COMMERCIALIZATION • SPA’s nonlinear attitude tracking control and orbit feedback software is being offered as a ‘plug-in’ to Analytical Graphics’s Satellite Tool Kit commercial software. • SPA has developed these products as a ‘development partner’ of Analytical Graphics, Inc. of Malvern, PA. • GOVERNMENT/SCIENCE APPLICATIONS • Formation Control expected to be applied on NRO’s Passive Imaging Millimeterwave Interferometry (PIMI) project. • AeroAstro Inc. has selected SPA to provide subcontracting help on this study project.
