These two students (Rickard Brunskog and Elina Arvidsson) are working hard to finish their Bachelor thesis aimed at developing a method to measure the magnetic dipole moment of critical satellite parts.
ESTEC Cubesat workshop 9-13 December 2019
The MIST Project participated in the selection workshop for ESA's Fly Your Satellite program (FYS3) that was held at ESTEC 9-13 december 2019. Seven students teams from all over Europe participated with their projects. Each team gave a thirty minute presentation. The picture shows the participants from MIST. The full week of lectures were extremely... Continue Reading →
NanoProp propulsion module delivered
The flight model of the Nanoprop propulsion system was delivered to the MIST Project by GomSpace in Uppsala, Sweden on 14 January 2020. Here we see GomSpace Project manager Magnus Carltoft handing over the system to MIST Project manager Sven Grahn. This the first flight model of a MIST experiment to be delivered. A true...

Two M.Sc. thesis spring 2019
Functional testing of the Electric Power system (Stefano Barra) Thermal balance test of MIST (Fredrik Unell) The picture shows Steano Barra presenting his theis on 16 August 2019.
Two B.Sc.theses spring 2019
Here are the texts of the B.Sc. thesis mentioned on this site earlier: Helmholtz coils for magnetic testing Antenna system simulator.
New harness mock-up ready at End-of-semester meeting 21 May 2019
Agnes (left) and Borbala examine the newly assembled cable mock-up. Solar panels are simulated with transparent plexiglass to be able to see the internal routing of wires. Now we know what a huge effort the manufacturing and installation of all cabling is.
Functional testing set-up
The functional testing of MIST is now concentrating on creating a simulation environment for future full flight simulations. It consists of solar panel simulators developed by a student (Gustav) earlier and simulators of the power drain of experiments as a function of time developed by yet another student (Malte). The solar panel simulators and the... Continue Reading →
Helmholtz coil for checking the magnetometer and de-tumbling function
B.Sc. thesis students Valentin and Carl have designed a three-axis Helmholtz coil system that first eliminate the Earth's maghnetic field in the center of the coil system and then can add a magnetic field vector as strong as the Earth's field in any direction and even rotate that vector at a rate of 360 degrees...

Work on the new mock harness – the bottom stack
Students Borbala and David work hard to build a representative 3D-printed version of the satellite, including the harness.
MIST project at Swedish Space Forum 24-26 March
The Swedish Space community regularly holds gatherings to exhange ideas. This year, the event "Rymdfoum" was held in the town of Trollhättan on 24-26 March 2019. Trollhättan is the home of GKN Aerospace, the maker of jet engines and important parts of rocket engines for the Ariane launch vehicle family. The MIST project had a... Continue Reading →
