Formatted Abstract/Summary The design and simulation of an attitude guidance and control scheme for a spinning aerospace vehicle is detailed. The guidance law issues pitch and yaw rate commands to two single-input, single-output controllers, which in turn issue flap deflection commands. A nonaxisymmetrical vehicle spinning at 1.5 Hz with independent pitch and yaw flap sets is simulated in a six degree- of-freedom simulation. It is shown to perform attitude manoeuvres using either one or both sets of flaps. Using one set of flaps results in a settling time of 1.5 s, whilst the settling time for both flap sets is 0.7 s. The guidance law has a number of possible applications. These include munitions guidance, stability augmentation and redundancy, alternatives in fin configurations for vehicles and reduction in number of necessary control surfaces.
