Abstract The problem of stabilization of the steady-state motion (a cylindrical precession) of a dynamically symmetric gyrostat satellite by means of external torques is solved. The satellite center of mass moves in a circular orbit. The problem is solved in a rigorous nonlinear formulation. The attraction domain of the steady-state motion in the phase space is estimated. The estimate is expressed in terms of the parameters of the system. The problem is solved on the basis of the theorem on the stability of a mechanical system under the action of dissipative, gyroscopic, potential, and non-potential positional forces [1].
