Methods of Attitude Determination of the Nanosatellite Munin.
The methods of attitude determination of the passive magnetic stabilized nanosatellite Munin provided with equipment, which can be only conditionally considered as attitude sensors are presented. The attitude control system consists of a strong permanent magnet and a set of hysteresis rods fabricated from the soft magnetic material treated using specific technology. The measurements of two uniaxis magnetometers, solar panels output episodical pictures of starry sky and the Earth's limb by low sensitive CCD-camera are supposed to be used. The local and statistical methods laid in basis for software development are analyzed.
