Overview

This course first introduces the rotational kinematics which is essential for implementing the satellite attitude control. This is followed by comprehensive introduction to the subject matters of satellite/rigid body rotational dynamics. Finally, the attitude control of satellites using reaction wheels, control moment gyros, magnetic/Lorentz force actuators, and thrusters are introduced.
