Description In this paper two nonlinear control techniques are developed and compared for the satellite attitude control problem. The first technique is a robust recursive nonlinear method using Euler angle formulation. This method isrelated to integrator backstepping as well as feedback linearization techniques. However, in this paper a different formulation is presented which overcomes some of the previous difficulties in applying backstepping to this problem by treating the three axis satellite system as a fully coupled set of second order systems. The technique produces a robustly stable controller,which meets desired performance, accounts for system nonlinear behavior, and is easily implementable in a set of feedback equations that can be computed in real time. The second technique is a learning control that updates the control input iteratively in order to enhance the transient performance of systems that are repeatedly executed over a fixed finite duration. It updates the control input by learning laws without the computation of system parameters and inverse dynamics of systems. The advantage of utilizing learning control schemes for attitude control systems is the enhancement of
