This page (https://shiyuzhao.wordpress.com/2011/06/08/rotation-matrix-angle-axis-angular-velocity/), gives the following relation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]\left[R\vec{\omega}\right]_{\times}=R\left[\vec{\omega}\right]_{\times}R^{T}[/itex]

Where:

* ##R## is a DCM (Direction Cosine Matrix)

* ##\vec{v}## is the angular velocity vector

* ##[\enspace]_{\times}## represents a skew-symmetric matrix

I'm not sure where this came from. Is it some inherent property of a skew-symmetric matrix?
