In this paper, a finite-time control scheme is presented for stabilization of the satellite chaotic attitude around its equilibrium point when its attitude is confused by a disturbed torque. Controllers and settling time of stabilizaton are obtained, based on the Lyapunov stability theorem and finite-time control scheme. This method is satisfied for any initial condition. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate the ability and effectiveness of proposed method.
