The Stuttgart Operated University Research Cubesat for Evaluation and Education is a 3U CubeSat that is entirely built by students of the Small Satellite Student Society and supervised by the Institute of Space Systems, both at the University of Stuttgart. In addition to education, technology demonstration and meteor observation, its scientific goal is to improve the understanding of small satellite behaviour and the demise process during re-entry. Like many other missions, both academic and non-academic, SOURCE requires a space- and cost-efficient attitude determination and control system. Due to the added educational aspect of a student developed satellite, it is attractive to design most of the systems in-house. The main tasks are detumbling after deployment, sun- and Earth pointing of the solar panels and the meteor camera, and provision of the current attitude for the scientific payloads. The used algorithms are predominantly self-developed or customized to fit the systems needs. Since the actuation is entirely based on magnetorquers, the system is limited to two-axes control. This imposes a unique set of challenges in attitude control and requires rigorous testing in simulations to ensure satisfactory performance of the system, even if individual sensors fail. A solution for early testing of the MATLAB to C transpiled code is presented. The development and testing approach for the ADCS software can act as a source of inspiration for future CubeSat projects.
