57, where Tgi is the motor torque applied at each gimbal. Even though the CMG moment of inertia about the gimbal Jg is relatively small, the ???? × h0 gyroscopic moment produced by the CMG momentum coupling with spacecraft rate is a big torque that requires a powerful gimbal servomotor in order to be able to achieve the required gimbal rate. In simple models we can assume that the gimbal rates are equal to the commanded rates ????˙i = ????˙comd(i) . 57) The relative gimbal angle ???? for each CMG is obtained by integrating ????˙ = ????˙i − ????˙ The spacecraft attitude error is used by the control law to calculate the acceleration command ????˙ comd .

It is also used to control the angles of attack and sideslip and the rate of descent. Excessive aeroloading due to ???? and ???? may be catastrophic especially at high dynamic pressures. The aeroloads are measured in terms of Q???? = (Q × ????). Typically, normal and lateral loads should not exceed 3000–3500 (psf-deg). In launch vehicles during high dynamic pressures, a load-relief feedback loop is included in parallel with the attitude control loop in order to alleviate normal and lateral loads. When the load-relief system is operating, the flight control system steers the vehicle in a direction that trades-off a certain amount of directional controllability in order to gain some reduction in lateral loading.

Is the nominal vehicle speed along the velocity vector. 9 RATES WITH RESPECT TO THE STABILITY AXES When a flight vehicle is operating at high angles of attack, roll maneuvering is usually performed by rotating about the velocity vector V0 and not about the body x-axis. This minimizes the sideslip transients and the undesirable side-loads due to beta. A rotation about V0 requires the vehicle to be commanded to rotate about both roll and yaw (Pb and Rb ) body axes simultaneously in order to minimize beta.
