Figure 1 shows coning motion of high dynamic bodies, [x.sub.c] represents coning axis, [OMEGA] represents the coning frequency, and a represents the half coning angle.
Then, the coning environment is added, the half coning angle [alpha] = 1[degrees], and the coning frequency [OMEGA] = 360[degrees]/s.
