Abstract

Abstract A brief survey of the dynamics of artificial satellites with passive gravity-gradient and magnetic attitude control systems is presented. As examples, the parameters of such are computed for two nanosatellites in which interaction with the geomagnetic field is employed, implying stringent restrictions on mass, volume and energetics. The basic functions relating the characteristics of the motion to the parameters of such satellites are presented.
