Attitude estimation is the strategy of predicting the future orientation of the spacecraft by using dynamical models. The aerospace and specifically spacecraft technology has remained a burning research area, which relies on ground-based communication. For such reasons, a vast researcher attention has been gained by spacecraft mission for its successful completion in this era. However, for fruitful and affective spacecraft mission, it heavily depends on regular and smooth transmission of observation data. Any disturbance in the communication channel would lead to interruption in observation data, which will ultimately hinder the performance of spacecraft attitude control system. Generally speaking, this irregular transmission of data is known as intermittent observation.
