Abstract: This article has adopted an analytical method to obtain a non-linear control law to reach the exponential asymptotic stablity of the permanent rotational motion of a spacecraft. The control moments achieving this rotational motion are obtained. The control moments to establish exponential asymptotic stablity of the mentioned motion are obtained as non-linear functions of the phase coordinates of the spacecraft. The general solution of the equations of perturbed motion is derived. Furthermore, analysis and numerical simulation study of this solution are presented. For numerical examples the time needed for control is calculated. An equilibrium position of the spacecraft is proved to be exponentially asymptotically stable as a special case of the above-studied problem.
