ABSTRACT
The Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn is the end of an
era for NASA; sending one large spacecraft equipped to
carry out a multitude of scientific experiments. Future
NASA missions will deploy many smaller spacecrafts in
highly controlled spatial configurations in what is
referred to as "formation flying." Among the many
challenges to this approach are: maintaining precise
relative-positions, attitude relative to desired target, and
communication for information sharing among all
spacecraft in formation. In this paper we will investigate
the advantages of using an intelligent fuzzy supervisory
unit to modify the optimal regulator developed to
