Precise attitude determination (AD) is of vital importance in many space missions. In turn, accuracy and reliability of an AD subsystem strongly affects the performance of the spacecraft attitude control system required for optimum pointing capability. In this spirit, this chapter is devoted to the introduction of some recent nonlinear AD algorithms using vector observations. Performance, accuracy, and implementation aspects of several proposed AD algorithms are demonstrated via numerical simulation to pave the way for their future online utility.
