Purpose:This project entitled « MAGnetometer Integrating Controlled Attitude with Low-noise Science (MAGICALS) » the MAGnetometer Integrating Controlled Attitude with Low-noise Science (MAGICALS) team will design, develop, test and validate an innovative integrated attitude actuation and scientific magnetic monitoring subsystem, for cube and nanosatellite applications. Miniaturizing subsystems is critical to the future utilisation of space for Canadian benefit. MAGICALS will address challenges of accurate maneuvering, essential for Earth observation and other applications. It will open the door to constellation class nanosatellite missions by enabling low noise magnetic measurements by cube satellites.
Comments:The amount allocated covered more than one fiscal year.
