In this letter we provide a steering law for redundant single-gimbal control moment gyros. The proposed steering law is an extended version of the singular direction avoidance (SDA) steering law based on the singular value decomposition (SVD). All internal singularities are escapable for any non-zero constant torque command using the proposed steering law.
