Abstract：Tetrahedron formation has an important application in the space physical three-dimensional collaborative detection. Formation keeping control must be carried out to guarantee the detecting efficiency. However,the in-track coupling effect of cross-track maneuver can cause the drift along the in-track direction, thus making the deterioration of geometric characteristic, and having a bad effect on the detecting efficiency. An analytical compensation method for formation-flying satellites was designed to eliminate the in-track drift caused by coupling effect of cross-track maneuver, and achieve the accurate formation initialization reconfiguration and formation keeping control under J2 perturbation. The numerical simulation results show that the method is simple and efficient to eliminate the in-track drift caused by cross-track maneuver under J2 perturbation, and can achieve more accurate formation control.
