about

Used increasingly in telecommunications, scientific research, surveillance, and meteorology, satellites rely heavily on complex onboard control systems. This book explains the basic theory of spacecraft dynamics and control and the practical aspects of controlling a satellite. The emphasis is on analyzing and solving real-world engineering problems. Among the topics covered are orbital dynamics, attitude dynamics, gravity gradient stabilization, single and dual spin stabilization, attitude maneuvers, attitude stabilization, and structural dynamics and liquid sloshing.

Editorial Reviews

"One especially useful feature of the book is the extensive use of specific examples illustrating the various topics...I am confident that anyone working in the field of spacecraft dynamics will find plenty of useful material in this book. The book will also be useful as a textbook for a one- or two-semester course at the senior or first-year graduate student level." Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets
