This paper is co-authored by Robert Magner, Niels Roth, Brad Cotton, and Dr. Robert Zee, all from the University of Toronto, UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory. SFL will also present a paper entitled “A Versatile Magnetorquer Design for Microsatellite Constellation Missions” in Session VII: Student Competition (Session Webinar – Student Competition Awards, 10am to 11am MDT, Wednesday August 5). The author of the paper is Philip Hampton, a graduate student at SFL under the supervision of Dr. Robert Zee.
