Demonstratine Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking (ARD) technology.

Description

Demonstrating Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking (ARD) technology for use on cost effective, low power microsatellite infrastructures. demonstrate a state-of-the-art CubeSat attitude determination and control (ADC) suite that will be necessary to conduct ARD. The ADC suite includes a GPS receiver, MEMS gyroscopes, an accelerometer, sun sensors, star tracker, magnetometer, reaction wheels, torque rods, and a cold-gas propulsion unit. Additionally, the LONESTAR (AggieSat-4) spacecraft will photograph its partner satellite and conduct crosslink communications to calculate relative navigation solutions.
