'Chibis-M' Microsatellite Attitude Control Algorithms Flight Testing
'Chibis-M' microsatellite attitude control system is presented. Damping initial angular velocity with magnetic coils use, orbital reference frame stabilization with reaction wheels use and sun attitude acquisition flying test results are considered. Also satellite attitude determination algorithms work on lighted and shaded orbit sides are investigated. Attitude control system work logic are presented and analyzed.
