Active magnetic attitude control algorithms for a Cubesat for astrophysics research
Magnetic attitude control system for CXBN-2 satellite is considered. The satellite is of a 2U CubeSat standard designed to study the cosmic X-ray background of the Universe. Attitude control system is comprised of magnetorquers only. Four potential attitude modes are analyzed. Optimum according to a set of criteria (particularly data volume maximization and even celestial sphere coverage), algorithm is obtained.
