A Genetic Algorithms (GAs) based method is presented in this paper for concurrent design of rule sets and membership functions for a fuzzy logic controllers to be used in spacecraft proximity operations. The heuristic nature of fuzzy logic makes GAs a natural candidate for logic design in which both rule sets and membership functions are optimized simultaneously. The employment of GAs natural genetic operations provides a means to search in a complex system space that is difficult to described mathematically. A one-dimensional controller for spacecraft proximity operations is implemented for examination in detail. The expension of the algorithm for a 6 DOP controller is discussed.
