Abstract

Aerodynamic passive attitude control for nano-satellites is analyzed and discussed. Designs which optimize passive attitude control for GASPACS--a 1U CubeSat launching in a year and half--are detailed, and methods for modeling satellite attitude behavior are explored. It is concluded that the current design for GASPACS will succeed in achieving two axes stabilization within 20 degrees from the RAM vector. Passive attitude control designs similar to GASPACS' will help the nano-satellite community's growing need to simplify satellite systems in order to fulfill nano-satellite missions.
