A novel finite-time control scheme is investigated for a rigid spacecraft in present of parameter uncertainties and external disturbances. Firstly, the spacecraft mathematical model is transformed into a cascading system by introducing an adaptive variable. Then a novel finite-time attitude stabilization control scheme for a rigid spacecraft is proposed based on the homogeneous method. Lyapunov stability analysis shows that the resulting closed-loop attitude system is proven to be stable in finite time without parameter uncertainties and asymptotically stable with parameter uncertainties. Finally, numerical simulation examples are also presented to demonstrate that the control strategy developed is feasible and effective for spacecraft attitude stabilization mission.
