Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to establish the feasibility of mechanizing a proposed single-axis control system momentum bias, and to obtain a set of approximate system design parameters. It is expected that the results will facilitate an evaluation of the single-axis system with respect to other attitude control schemes being considered. Analysis of vehicle dynamic behavior for the various environmental and self-induced disturbances encountered in space is an important part of the study. Results are expressed in both numerical and parametric form. A consequence of the study was the definition of a specific acquisition sequence. Criteria for parameter selection and a specific mechanization were developed system dynamic response was studied in some detail. Author
