Abstract

Tohoku University is now developing the 50-kg micro satellite named SPRITE-SAT. The SPRITE-SAT has the deployable mast, which length is 86 cm and the tip-mass weight is 3.68 kg. The deployable mast was newly developed for SPRITE-SAT. In this paper, the hardware mechanism and evaluation method are described. In addition, the control algorithm of magnetic torquers and the numerical simulation in typical control sequence were explained. As results, the validation of hardware and software of attitude control system for SPRITE-SAT was confirmed.
