Abstract

The purpose of this project was to create an orbital simulation of a satellite which could be used as an aid in the preliminary design process of PANSAT, WPI's nanosatellite that will compete as part of the University Nanosat student satellite design competition. Satellite Tool Kit was used to create the orbital model and generate reports that influenced the design of the power and communication systems of this satellite.
