Abstract. An approach to the problem of maintenance of stable functioning of small spacecraft is considered. The essence of the approach consists in integration of autonomous navigation system into the small spacecraft onboard control complex to allow for measurement of the primary navigation parameters just on board. An algorithm of joint information processing with the use of the least squares method is proposed.
