Abstract

Microsatellites, weigh less than 100 kg attract attention due to recent growth of space business. Space Robotic Laboratory (SRL) of Tohoku University is currently developing a 50-kg-class Earth observation microsatellite RISESAT, and it is planned to be launched in 2019. RISESAT is equipped with 680 bands and 4 m resolution multispectral Earth observation system which is world's highest performance regardless of satellite size. To carry out the observation, RISESAT has to track a ground target with an accuracy of 0.1°. In this paper, we propose attitude maneuver sequence design which enables high-precision and reliable attitude determination by star trackers. Spiral scan algorithm to enlarge observation area is also derived. Evaluations of the algorithm were carried out by a simulator 'MEVI\mu \mathrm {S}' which is a Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulation (HILS) environment developed by SRL. We confirm that the algorithm satisfies the mission requirements under the influence of sensor noise and computation time limits.
