Abstract:

The paper deals with the integration of differential equations of rotational motion of an artificial satellite on elliptical orbit. The solution has been constructed in the form of the series of sigma 34-nL times A-CA, where n - the mean motion of the satellite on the orbit, L - precessional rotation velocity of the satellite, A, C - moments of inertia of the satellite with dynamical symmetry.
