The paper presents a nonlinear robust control design method for satellite with asymptotic tracking of a desired attitude trajectory based on thruster. The error dynamics with respect to a given reference trajectory is derived and the design procedure is formulated as a stabilization problem. The solution of the nonlinear robust control problem is known to related to the existence of solution to a Hamilton-Jacobi inequality. A candidate solution to the Hamilton-Jacobi inequality is obtained for the attitude control problem. The method is applied to the ROCSAT-3 attitude tracking control problem to verify its effectiveness. large angle tracking control, Hamilton-Jacobi inequality, thruster control.
