Reconfiguration procedures are complex because of the requirements in the desired orbital elements in formation flying. In this paper, different nonlinear controllers will be utilized to perform the reconfiguration procedure. The objective of this paper is to reconfigure the NASA Benchmark Tetrahedron Constellation using a fuzzy logic controller and other nonlinear discrete controllers which do not involve complex mathematical procedures. In summary, this paper will develop different nonlinear controllers to perform the reconfiguration procedure between two of the specific sizes of the NASA Benchmark Tetrahedron Constellation.
