In this paper, we consider six degree of freedom (dof) nonlinear control of flexible spacecraft. Firstly, the motion equation of the six dof flexible spacecraft is described and the error system is derived. Secondly, static output feedback controller is derived by passivity-based control method as the case of the attitude control. Thirdly, based on the results, we design the dynamic output controller without velocity measurement. Finally, effectiveness of the control methods is verified by simulations.
