Abstract : High moment-producing techniques are applied to the attitude control of manned space vehicles which perform orbital transfer, rendezvous, and lifting re-entry maneuvers. The specific accomplishments were: (1) establishment of control system, subsystem and component requirements for critical vehicle flight phases, and (2) analysis of promising techniques for performing the flight control functions required during the various maneuvers.
