Amazonia 1 was the first remote sensing satellite fully designed, integrated, tested, and operated by Brazil. It was developed by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and was launched on February 28, 2021. In this project, Julia language was frequently used in the mission analysis and the development of the attitude and orbit control subsystem (AOCS).


This talk presents how we used the packages ReferenceFrameRotations.jl, SatelliteToolbox.jl, and DifferentialEquations.jl to create a high fidelity simulator of the Amazonia-1’s AOCS and perform numerous analyses related to this mission.
