What you're referring to is Thruster Maneuvering, which will also be part of this page. Right now, the preliminary info is on one of my samdbox pages. As I acquire more information, it will be added so I can create the Maneuvering/Nebula Warfare course I was telling you about.
When using the X, Y & Z Axes, you're basically talking RCS Thrusters. When talking Three Dimentional Compass Navigation, the X, Y & Z Axes get reduced to simply "Bearing" and "Mark".
Nice links for basic Engineering pages, but they proved to be little to no help for Navigation.
Thanks for trying though. If you find some good Navigation sites, please post the links.
