Abstract

Although any system of continuous differential equations with a known solution can be written as equations linearized in the variational coordinates for that solution, and these equations can always be used to provide matrix transfer functions among the variables, this approach is particularly fruitful when scalar transfer functions are extracted to relate the vehicle rotation about a given axis. Such transfer functions may be expected to provide results indicative of spacecraft dynamic response when the vehicle is nonspinning and the dominant modes of appendage vibrations do not produce excessive cross-axis coupling of the spacecraft.
