This paper presents a method of control design for the stabilization of uniform rotation about an arbitrary axis in a rigid body. The control law introduced in this paper is linear and robust. In contrast to existing methods, the methodology developed here fully exploits the geometric structure of rigid body motion by using the energy-momentum method of stability analysis. The methodology is illustrated with several examples.
