Bisma Sajid and Zaina Abu Sha'ar, students of Skoltech's Engineering Systems Master's program, presented their work at this year's 74th International Astronautical Congress in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Bisma Sajid. «The study conducted was about "In-Orbit Attitude Determination & System Modeling of Skoltech B1 and B2 CubeSats". The attitude determination system based on Extended Kalman Filter and the control system based on magnetic controller was designed for the CubeSats. Taking magnetometer & gyroscope sensors and their measurement drifts, the actual system was tried to replicate as closely as possible. And finally, based on the experiments performed on the simulation model, the requirements for Skoltech's upcoming launch of CubeSat-F in 2024 were derived».

Zaina Abu Sha'ar. «I presented the research paper "A Smallsat Constellation for F10.7 and F30 cm Solar Radio Flux Measurements" at The IAC2023. The work explores the mission design of a SmallSat constellation aimed at ensuring uninterrupted solar radio flux measurements. This approach addresses a current gap in these measurements and aims at providing the data back to Earth in near real-time. This not only enhances the applications relying on such measurements but also perfectly aligns with the theme of this year's IAC, "Give Space a Chance."
