Following a visit in Bulgaria last fall by Prof. Ulrich to lecture on spacecraft guidance, navigation and control, Carleton University’s Spacecraft Robotics and Control Laboratory partners with EnduroSat AD on a project related to the design and analysis of the on-board autonomous attitude determination and control system (ADCS) for the next generation of CubeSat platforms designed specifically for nanosatellite swarms.

Both Prof. Ulrich’s research team and EnduroSat AD hope that this first project will be the first of a series of successful collaborations, ultimately leading to flight demonstrations.
