Optimal control problems are formulated and efficient computational procedures are proposed for attitude dynamics of a rigid body with symmetry. The rigid body is assumed to act under a gravitational potential and under a structured control moment that respects the symmetry. The symmetry in the attitude dynamics system yields a conserved quantity, and it causes a fundamental singularity in the optimal control problem. The key feature of this paper is its use of computational procedures that are… CONTINUE READING
