| An adaptive attitude control law is presented that realizes linear closed-loop dynamics in the attitude error vector. The Modiied Rodrigues Parameters (M-RPs) are used as the kinematic variables since they are non-singular for all possible rotations. The desired linear closed-loop dynamics can be of either PD or PID form. Only a crude estimate of the(More)

Joe Qin, who patiently introduced me into the system identification and fault diagnosis areas. Without his guidance and support I will never finish this work at this point. I would like to thank Dr. Dr. Maruthi Ram Akella, has offered(More)
