Shape Change Maneuvers for Attitude Control of Underactuated Satellites.

An asymptotically stable set point control law is introduced for attitude control of the underactuated spacecraft of a satellite system through its appendage shape changes. It is proposed that rotational maneuvers of the spacecraft are possible while simultaneously achieving a desired shape if the t...
