We investigated a hierarchical hybrid system architecture to implement an autonomous multiple satellite control scheme for the low earth orbit remote sensing satellites. We networked multiple satellites and ground control station into a hierarchical hybrid system and applied hybrid automata theory onto the different tiers of the system. Compared with the traditional satellite control concept, the hierarchical hybrid system is more autonomous, effective, scalable, and robust for the space remote sensing applications. In this paper, we developed the mathematical model for the multiple satellite control model and simulated the model with Matlab, Simulink and Stateflow. The simulation results show that the hierarchical hybrid system theory is feasible for the autonomous control of multiple satellite.
