Getting Started with CubeSats

Model, simulate, analyze, and visualize the motion and dynamics of CubeSats and nano satellites. Nano satellites are miniaturized spacecraft designed for space research based on one or more 10 cm cubes of up to 1.33 kg per unit. Use the Aerospace Blockset™ CubeSat Simulation Library, available as an Add-On.

  1. Start the Add-On Explorer for the CubeSat Add-on.

  2. In the Add-On Explorer, click Aerospace Blockset CubeSat Simulation Library and follow instructions to install the Add-On.

  3. To explore the block library for the CubeSat Add-On, at the MATLAB® command line, type:


The CubeSat Simulation Library Add-On contains:
