File Name: spacecraft attitude determination and control .zip
Attitude control is the process of controlling the orientation of an aerospace vehicle with respect to an inertial frame of reference or another entity such as the celestial sphere , certain fields, and nearby objects, etc. Controlling vehicle attitude requires sensors to measure vehicle orientation, actuators to apply the torques needed to orient the vehicle to a desired attitude, and algorithms to command the actuators based on 1 sensor measurements of the current attitude and 2 specification of a desired attitude. The integrated field that studies the combination of sensors, actuators and algorithms is called guidance, navigation and control GNC.

Spacecraft pointing accuracies with sub-arcsec to milli-arcsec levels are becoming a norm for the future space missions, which is mainly achieved by employing mission-specific fine guidance sensor FGS. Furthermore, performance comparison between the rate-integrating and rate-gyroscope-based multiplicative extended Kalman filter for this mission is demonstrated. Finally, performance comparison of three attitude controllers establishes their feasibility for this mission. Google Scholar. G Google Scholar. Thesis, Massachusetts Inst.
F] Fundamentals of Spacecraft Attitude Determination and Control Read Online Details Details Product: This book explores topics that are central to the field of spacecraft attitude determination and control. The authors provide rigorous theoretical derivations of significant algorithms accompanied by a generous amount of qualitative discussions of the subject matter. The book documents the development of the important concepts and methods in a manner accessible to practicing engineers, graduate-level engineering students and applied mathematicians. It includes detailed examples from actual mission designs to help ease the transition from theory to practice and also provides prototype algorithms that are readily available on the author's website. Subject matter includes both theoretical derivations and practical implementation of spacecraft attitude determination and control systems. It provides detailed derivations for attitude kinematics and dynamics and provides detailed description of the most widely used attitude parameterization, the quaternion.
