Table 10-38 summarizes the attitude-control requirements for the two example spacecraft (see Table 10-13). FLTSATCOM employs body-mounted antennas for its payload and orients one body face to point the antennas toward nadir. FLTSATCOM also has a planar solar array which it orients toward the Sun by combining body orientation and rotation of the array axis. Finally, FLTSATCOM has a guidance requirement for AV corrections. HEAO-B was required to point anywhere except close to the Sun and hold accurate pointing for long periods. It also had modest power requirements and no requirement for orbit correction.
