We study the role of information flow, and especially the rate of update of information among the vehicles in a formation, on the stability of the formation. The problem is initially posed in the general nonlinear context and a linear special case is studied in detail. We present numerical examples that illustrate the results. We also study briefly the effect of imprecise communications on the stability of a formation.
