For attitude control of certain classes of spacecraft, digital techniques appear to offer distinct advantages over analog systems. A program was conducted to evaluate experimentally a stabilization and control system in which digital methods are used for measurement, signal processing, and torque control. The logic design of the control system is discussed in detail, and the hardware used for implementing the design is described. Preliminary experimental results are presented which confirm predicted control accuracy advantages.
