In this paper we report on the application of a model predictive control-based approach to the design of a controller for formation keeping and formation attitude control, with applications to spacecraft formation flight problems such as NASA's DS3 mission. Control laws for formation keeping and attitude control are designed using a combined approach of feedback linearization and model predictive control. Actuator saturation is incorporated into the controller design. Switching between coordinated frames is incorporated to overcome singularities associated with local feedback linearization
