Abstract

This project, prepared in coordination with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, creates and analyzes a model for taking a satellite out of an abnormally high spin. Using the software package MATLAB, the designers created an analytical model that simulates the behavior of the system. In addition, the team developed a preliminary design concept of a deployment mechanism.
