Role in BIRDS-3 : My role is mainly Attitude determination and control system(ADCS). I will try to develop active control by magnetic torquer, which is a different control method from BIRDS-1/2. In this method, considering how to design control algorithm will be the key factor to be succeed. Also, I will have some tasks in OBC, thermal design and some non-product works.
In this project, we can learn the whole process of building a system through designing, developing, testing and operating the satellite. This will be very valuable experience to work as an engineer in the future. I want to contribute greatly in this project while improving my skill.
