In this brief, a tracking controller is presented to stabilize the attitude of a micro satellite via integrator backstepping and quaternion feedback. The controller is shown to render the equilibrium points in the closed-loop system uniformly asymptotically stable. Simulations are performed using satellite parameters from the ESEO mission under the European Space Agency's SSETI project.
