Attitude Control Simulations produce results

On November 24, 2022, students succeeded in running hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations of the attitude control of MIST that match earlier software-in-the-loop (SIL) simulations (see figure above). The earlier simulations ran in a laptop where control code, sensors, actuators,and the orbital motion of the satellite, sun and magnetic field orientations are all run in software. These...

Testing the ground station antenna

The MIST student satellite ground station can be seen below tracking the FunCube-1 satellite across the sky and then goes to a parking position where the satellite will appear on the the next pass over Stockholm. During this pass we received telemetry on 145.935 MHz using the shorter of the antennas in the video and... Continue Reading →
