Paper Abstract

One of the difficult problems in designing an attitude control system of nano-satellite for earth observation is to realize the high accuracy control of three-axis attitude stabilization when the nano-satellite orbits around the earth. In this paper, we present a virtual imaging based attitude determination method. The corresponding algorithm shares the images of the earth captured in real-time as the attitude sensing information, and uses the virtual imaging method based on coordinate transformation to obtain the attitude information.
