CubeSat: Image Modeling and Selection

Progress Report

At the end of the semester the code works well within certain conditions. The orbitImage function is generating images that pass all the test I have run. The limiting factor in this code is actually the images we currently have to work with. These images have to low of a resolution to accurately simulate the heights we expect the CubeSat to be at.

The cubeSatSim code is generating the images for a moving satellite correctly. There are improvements to be made in the presentation of the output, namely the image of the sphere can be hard to read at times, but the code is working correctly.

I also have a demo script that just runs cubeSatSim for a long time.

Still to do:

  • Additional testing
  • Incorporate the rotation into both orbitImage and cubeSatSim
