Abstract

The delayed feedback stabilization of rigid spacecraft attitude dynamics in the presence of an unknown time-varying delay in the measurement is addressed. The attitude representation is parameterized using minimal attitude coordinates. The time-varying delay and its derivative are assumed to be bounded. By employing a linear state feedback controller via a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, a general delay-dependent stability condition is characterized for the closed-loop parameterized system in terms of a linear matrix inequality (LMI) whose solution gives the suitable controller gains. An estimate of the region of attraction of the controlled system is also obtained, inside which the asymptotic stability of parameterized system is guaranteed.
