After spending three intensive days (18-20 February) at our subsystem contractor ISISpace in Delft the MIST Attitude Control team succeded in getting their simulation environment to successfully test the attitude Control code delivered by ISISpace. This software-in-the-loop test is crucial to verifying that the delivered code works and that the control of the satellite is adequate. The left-hand graph shows the pointing error as a function of time. The satellite starts by pointing toward zenith but after about 20000 seconds it points reasonably well at nadir. Thanks for the support, ISISpace!
