In this paper we use ellipsoidal cones to achieve rendezvous of multiple agents. Rendezvous of multiple agents is shown to be equivalent to ellipsoidal cone invariance and a controller synthesis framework is presented. We first demonstrate the methodology on first order LTI systems and then extend it to rendezvous of mechanical systems, that is systems that are force driven.
