  1. 1. Magnetic Moment Characterization for Small Satellites

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Alejandro Sans Monguiló; [2021]
    Keywords : small satellite; CubeSat; optical magnetic test bed; magnetic dipole moment characterization; residual magnetic moment; permanent magnet verification; magnetic measurement; Foresail-1; Helmholtz cage;

    Abstract : Small satellites are gaining popularity in a wide range of applications where attitude systems require high precision performance. One of the main sources of errors, in case of magnetic attitude control systems, is the residual magnetic moment (RMM) of the spacecraft. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling And Simulation of Attitude AndOrbital Control For Foresail-2

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Tushar Sharma; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A central factor affecting spacecraft lifetime is the radiation environment, which isunpredictable due to an incomplete understanding of plasma dynamics. FORESAIL2 will build on the FORESAIL-1 results – measurements of radiation belt lossesand demonstrate deorbiting in LEO. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling of the thermal environment and subsystem for a 6U cubesat in GTO orbit

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Vidhyuth Kasturi Chakravarthy Iyengar; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The thermal design of the spacecraft ensures the unobstructed and smoothoperation of the spacecraft under the harsh space conditions. As small satellitesare getting more accessible and standardized, their uses are growing more intomission scenarios which are conventionally used by larger satellites. READ MORE
