ALMASat-1

Alma Mater Satellite

The ALMASat project, started in 2003 at University of Bologna in Forlì, shares the same design philosophy of the UNISAT program, with the additional challenge of implementing full three-axis attitude control since the very first mission. Along with its main educational purpose the goal is to offer the scientific community a low-cost and reliable bus to be used for a wide range of space-based experiments, where pointing control is an important requirement.

The micropropulsion system on-board the ALMASat-1 microsatellite is a nitrogen cold gas system which uses 12 microthrusters MEMS-based (Micro Electro-Mechanical System), in order to generate the required thrust level for the whole mission, about 0.75 mN for each thruster.
