In this research a novel autonomous test system is presented. The system is a self contained microprocessor based experiment, which was developed to compare and test different state-of-the-art Gallium Arsenide and Silicon solar cells. The result will help evaluate radiation hardness properties of both types of solar cells. The system can also be used to study the annealing process as well as shadowing effects in space array systems. Stringent requirements were considered in designing the system for durable operation in a space environment.

Spin stabilization of the ORION satellite using a thruster attitude control system with optimal control considerations Cunningham, Janet L. (Naval Postgraduate School, 1989);The controlled system is the ORION satellite spinning about its single axis of symmetry. Hydrazine thrusters are used as the control and are modeled by ideal, constant magnitude step functions. The system is normalized and ...
