I am working on a project to design a complete mission for a lunar CubeSat.
Assuming that the launch segment is already covered and I need to focus on the spacecraft design.
I wanted to know what are the main questions should I answer during the initial design. The questions I have come up with so far are
- How do we communicate with the satellite?
- Actuators and sensors typically used for attitude maneuvers?
- Choosing the right orbit
I wanted to know what are the main topics I need to keep in mind during the design? Just like section headings that I need to fill up.
Also, are there any good sources online that I can follow specifically for lunar mission design?
