Abstract

A model reference adaptive control law is presented for large angle rotational maneuvers of spacecraft using reaction jets. It is assumed that the various parameters of the spacecraft are completely unknown, and unknown but bounded disturbance torques are acting on the spacecraft. The controller includes a dynamic system in the feedback path. Simulation results are presented to show that fast, large angle rotational maneuvers can be performed using the adaptive controller in spite of uncertainty in the system.
