The existing methods to estimate satellite attitude by using radar cross section (RCS) sequence suffer from problems such as low precision, computation complexity, etc. To overcome these problems, a novel model of satellite attitude estimation by the local maximum points of the RCS sequence is established and can reduce the computational time by downscaling the dimension of the feature vector. Moreover, a particle swarm optimization method is adopted to improve efficiency of computation. Numerical simulations show that the proposed method is robust and efficient.
