Developing higher level 3-axis attitude control mechanics is desired in recent satellite attitude control systems, so that we propose an innovative 3-axis attitude control for recent and future satellites by using Reflectivity Control Device, RCD, which is capable of changing its reflectance according to applied voltage. This paper shows some examples of the high accuracy and stability 3-axis attitude control method using RCD, and indicates usefulness of this method with the 3-axis attitude control simulation including the torques generated by solar radiation pressure.
