The problems of constructing the algorithms for determining the parameters of the rotational motion of a spacecraft from the information of a star sensor are considered, using the dynamic equation of the solid body rotation in the Rodrigues–Hamilton parameters. The results of modeling the work of the proposed algorithms are presented.
