Orientation of Large Orbital Stations
The single-axis gravitational orientation mode is considered for the Salyut 6 and 7 orbital stations. An integral statistical technique is described for determining the real rotational motion of the stations in this mode by the solar and magnetic sensor indications. The technique is illustrated by computations of residual microaccelerations aboard the station; their knowledge is important for an analysis of some technological experiments.
