This four volume report was prepared in order to compile, describe, and apply available nonlinear analysis and design techniques for space vehicle attitude control systems and to outline additional areas of future effort to improve present analysis and design procedures. Each of the four volumes is relatively independent of the others. Volume I is a definition and description of the problems associated with the design of the space vehicle attitude control systems. Volume II treats in detail the principal techniques for the analysis of nonlinear control systems and shows the application of these techniques to specific attitude control system problems. Volume III discusses three general problems in space vehicle attitude control systems, (1) single axis on-off gas jet system design, (2) active attitude control system design for a spin-stabilized vehicle, and (3) the design of a control system for a satellite vehicle with reaction wheels and gas jets. Volume IV is a collection of references and bibliography with annotations and comments covering the spectrum of the study effort. (Author).
