Abstract : "This paper presents finite-time stabilization of spacecraft formation flying with a decentralized collision
avoidance in the framework of geometric mechanics. A finite-time control scheme is developed such that each
spacecraft achieves desired relative configuration and velocities with respect to the virtual leader autonomously.
The finite-time control scheme is combined with a decentralized collision avoidance scheme. A Lyapunov analysis
guarantees that the spacecraft motions converge to the desired state trajectories with the combined control scheme
in finite time. Numerical simulation results verify the successful application of the proposed combined control
scheme for spacecraft formation flying in the presence of unknown external disturbances while avoiding collisions
via the decentralized collision avoidance."
