Transients and steady state error induced in maneuvering a satellite due to a disturbance torque caused by thrust mismatch or differential in the alignment of thrusters with respect to the center of mass are minimized by introducing a torque balancing bias at the input of a thrust modulator of the thrusters prior to sensing position or attitude error. The bias may instantly off-modulate the thruster control signal to cancel the effects of attitude transients before errors develop. Other axes thrusters may be on-modulated instantaneously to compensate for...


1. For use in a spacecraft during a change in velocity maneuver, the spacecraft employing a plurality of thrusters, at least a first thruster and a second thruster being disposed to develop mutually counteractive moment arms of thrust relative to at least one axis through a center of mass of the spacecraft, said first thruster and said second thruster being capable of developing unequal moment arms of force, a method for counteracting disturbance transients comprising the steps of: storing prior to said manuever a value representative of an estimated d...
