Dynamics of an axisymmetric satellite under influence of gravitational and aerodynamic torques
Abstract:
Dynamics of attitude motion of an axisymmetric satellite moving along a circular orbit under influence of gravitational and aerodynamic torques is investigated. All equilibrium orientations of the satellite in the orbital coordinate system are determined and sufficient conditions of stability of equilibria are investigated.
