Mission overview
Mission Overview

RocketSat VII shall design an attitude determination system for future RocketSat-C missions

  • Background: RocketSat VI

    • Mission required angle of attack of rocket to properly process science data

    • Attitude determination system was not successful

      • Algorithm chosen required more precise sensors to determine its position in flight


Design overview
Design Overview

Integrated

Stack

Main Board

contains gyroscopes and magnetometer

Optics Board

CMOS sensors to act as sun sensors


Expected results
Expected Results

  • Determine the attitude of the rocket during the ascending portion of flight

    • Need magnetometer data and at least one picture of the sun

  • Have a system that can be easily recreated for future RocketSat projects to use


Lessons learned
Lessons Learned

  • Don’t overcomplicate your design, but sometime complex systems are needed to meet the requirements

  • Always allow more time to complete certain tasks than you believe

  • Follow the schedule as much as possible


Conclusions
Conclusions

Ready for a Rocket Launch!
