Not only accurate orbit determination, but the recent rise of the necessitation referring to the precise earth-observation mission led to further researches on attitude control and determination of satellites through various data of attitude sensors in order for the improvement of pointing accuracy of satellites’ observational instruments. The pointing capability of a satellite toward a target is an important technique for deciding a mission. These high-technique researches are being developed in the laboratory.
- Research on attitude control and determination using the magnetic field of the Earth
- Development of attitude maneuvering from optimal theory
