Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to find out how to determine the center of gravity of a CubeSat present in an uniform sphere of radius R, using the initial data given by gyroscopes. The satelitte is equipped with magnetometers, gyroscopes, and accelerometers. By taking into account that the only values I have are angular rates around the three axes, it seems that both the Newton's laws and equations of motion are not enough.

Does anybody have any idea?

Thanks in advance!
