Development on the EQUEST method for attitude determination by Torill Bye Rinnan.
Investigation of using a composite material for the CubeSat primary structure by Kai Inge Rokstad.
Implementation of a three-axis attitude determination and control system for a double CubeSat using EQUEST method and magnetotquers by Fredrik Holberg.
Design of a three-axis attitude control system for a double CubeSat using only magnetorquers by Gaute Bråten.
The students got in touch with several other CubeSat communities and got a lot of attention because of their innovative and new ideas and approach.
All students returned home full of new ideas for their future work on the NUTS satellite.
