Störmer-Verlet integration scheme has many attractive properties when dealing with ODE systems in linear spaces: it is explicit, 2nd order, linear/angular momentum preserving and it is symplectic for Hamiltonian systems. In this paper we investigate its application for numerical simulation of the multibody system dynamics (MBS) by formulating Störmer-Verlet algorithm for the rotational rigid body motion in Lie-group setting. Starting from the investigations on the single free rigid body rotational dynamics, the paper introduces modified RATTLE integration scheme with the direct SO(3) rotational update. Furthermore, non-canonical Lie-group Störmer-Verlet integration scheme is presented through the different derivation stages. Several presented numerical examples show excellent conservation properties of the proposed geometric algorithm.
