Anyone has any idea on doing a simulation for a spin axis spacecraft? thanks, abul

Dear Abul,
For the moment, such feature is not directly supported in SPIS and correspond to evolutions that we have proposed for future evoltuion of the software.
Hoewever, you may build-up a workaround by the following ways:

  1. Perform several simulations, changing each time the Sun orientation. This can more less automatised using the “spis-tracks” at the SPIS-UI layer.
  2. Perform the same using the SPIS-NUM scenarios.
    Take care however, that in both cases, you must consider the relative characteristic times of your different physics.
