Project Description

T101-P Testing a CubeSat Attitude Control System in Micorgravity Conditions

Program start date is on hold until Space Act Agreement is signed.  Placeholder date of January 2014 is used as placeholder.

This experiment aimes to characterize the accuracy of quaternion and angular velocity measurement for random initial orientations.  It also will determine pointing accuracy of magnetic torque coil based attitude control system in the Earth's magnetic field for pico-scale satellite applications.  Potential users area scientists studying Earth dust environment, stellar and planetary astronomy.
