Fields of competence
ROBOTNOR represents a unique synergy of academic and industrial expertise which allows us to counsel and comprehend a wide variety of tasks and projects. Our fields of competence are numerous and diverse.
The NUTS satellite is a 2 unit CubeSat designed by students at NTNU. The plan is to design, build and launch the satellite by late 2014. Students from several departments at NTNU participate in the project. The main payload is an infrared camera that will take pictures of an atmospheric phenomena called gravity waves. To achieve this, the orientation of the satellite must be controlled and the camera must be pointed towards the Earth at specified time slots. The system responsible for determining and controlling the attitude consists of a gyro, a magnetometer and sun sensors as well as coils as actuators.
