  3. Abstract:
  4. A 3 DOF platform was constructed in the Georgia Institute of Technology to perform new control strategies in an experimental framework. Also in this simulator, there isn't any sensor used by a real satellite for attitude determination. The setup was structured on data transmitting and synchronization of distributed elements for ADCS tests. In such a plan, not only can different elements of the test bed be used individually, but also they can support an integrated hardware in the loop test. Accordingly, reusing the hardware sources causes a cost reduction of development. Furthermore the geometric interferences of different parts are minimized in this plan. So, the test bed can be developed for other sensors, actuators, and required simulated environments, without the interference with others. Experimental results verified the idea and the performance of the proposed design for attitude determination and control tests with real sensors in a simulated environment
