Currently, the importance of solving problems multiposition control the synthesis of spatially distributed systems increases significantly due to the expansion of the group use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in military and in economic fields. In addition, to ensure a coordinated group flight objects with the desired topology is significantly more difficult in comparison with the task of managing a single agent. This is due primarily to the fact that when using classical optimization methods inappropriately increases the dimension of the problem to be solved. During the modification based on the statistical theory of optimal control research has developed a new universal algorithm, significantly simpler and more cost-effective computationally, allowing to obtain different versions of the control group. Research of efficiency is the most complicated version of networking, in which each agent group knows its target destination and has the ability to exchange information with all other members of the group. As performance measures were used: linear error output UAVs in the required point in space, the angular coordinates the control errors, as well as regulation time. In general, studies suggest that the considered algorithm does not impose restrictions on the fundamental possibility of its realization.
