Description: GAINS will be designed for use on various CubeSats in a cislunar mission when GPS is not an option. This Inertial Navigation System will use various sensors to understand the Attitude Determination (AD) and Orbit Determination (OD) aspects of the mission. Project GAINS will feed relevant AD and OD data back to the parent spacecraft and to various ground stations while also receiving error and drift minimizing corrections from the ground station.
