Abstract:

The spacecraft attitude dynamics and control problem is introduced as a broad class of nonlinear systems. Some of the basic properties of these systems are described from a system theory point of view. Various system theory concepts and research topics which have applicability to this class of systems are identified and briefly described. The subject of multi-body dynamics is presented in a vector space setting and is related to system theory concepts. Author
