In this article is considered the problem of small satellite's angular position control. This problem is solved by some improvement. The authors offer to use active control element, in the form of gyrodyne, which to fix on the end of gravitational rod. This improvement transforms the gravitational system of orientation into a control system along three axes of orientation: yaw, roll and pitch.
