Analysis and Hardware In the Loop Testing of an ADCS Algorithm for a 1U CubeSat.  Magnetic ADCS components are among the lightest and least consuming options available in the CubeSat industry, however, their performance is subpar when compared to other options.

In this challenge, an optimization analysis of an ADCS algorithm is carried out to maximize its performance for CubeSats, in terms of attitude control performance and of the viability of its implementation in the spacecraft’s Control and Data Handling subsystem.
