The variable geometry and shape control of adaptive structures is studied. A theoretical basis for shape control of deployable truss structures is discussed. The purpose is to generate a method of finding the optimal path for high-authority controllers to steer a structure with arbitrary geometry from a given initial shape to a final shape. In addition, the study of the workspace of the structure in relation to attainability of the desired shapes is presented. The work space boundaries will establish a basis for state constraints in path optimization analysis
