1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I just saw the equation R'=RΩ (where ' is dot, or the derivative) in my notes (unorganized obviously), and can't remember what it stands for (rotation matrices?).
Can somebody please tell me what this equations means thanks. I know R is some position vector and Ω is the angular velocity, but I don't get what this equation is saying. Thanks.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
