Abstract

The behaviour of multibody gyroscopic systems is governed by the collinearity principle. In the present paper the collinearity principle is stated and its origin, history and applications are discussed. It is then used in two examples of spacecraft with momentum wheels to demonstrate its validity and applicability.
