An attempt for regularization and formation flight expression along two-body motion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper deals with how the formation flight target is expressed as trivial in some appropriate coordinates, instead of an orbital target. There is attempted to show the regularization process to obtain a special coordinate through a Levi-Civita non-linear transform. The paper will show how and which the virtual target corresponds to the physical formation configuration.
