This course trains you in the skills needed to program specific orientation and achieve precise aiming goals for spacecraft moving through three dimensional space. First, we cover stability definitions of nonlinear dynamical systems, covering the difference between local and global stability. We then analyze and apply Lyapunov's Direct Method to prove these stability properties, and develop a nonlinear 3-axis attitude pointing control law using Lyapunov theory. Finally, we look at alternate feedback control laws and closed loop dynamics.

TOP REVIEWS FROM CONTROL OF NONLINEAR SPACECRAFT ATTITUDE MOTION
The whole course is really good. The instructor is awesome at teaching concepts. I got to learn a lot of new things.
Thanks Prof Schaub, that was a wonder of a course! Learned so much and still want to proceed :)
Excellent course but it could have been smoother if the instructor kept himself in loop with people doing the course
Excellent teaching from Professor Schaub ! Course has been very well organised and touches on the important aspects of nonlinear control. Looking forward to more courses from you.
Thank you !
