An integrated guidance and feedback control scheme for steering an underactuated vehicle through desired waypoints in three-dimensional space. The guidance and control algorithm takes as an input the desired trajectory for the translational motion that passes through the given waypoints, and autonomously generates the desired trajectory for the attitude based on the desired thrust direction to achieve the translational motion trajectory. A feedback control law is obtained to steer the underactuated vehicle towards the desired trajectories in translation and rotation.
