In this thesis, a procedure is created for Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) implementation for 3-axis stabilized nanosatellites. The procedure is modified from the European Cooperation for Space Standardization ECSS to achieve a straightforward procedure suitable for a student satellite project. The resulting implementation procedure is described in detail consisting of requirements specification, system selection, procurement, verification and operations.

The Aalto-1 student satellite project is used as an example case to demonstrate the functionality of the procedure. The importance of a thorough requirements specification for the whole project became evident during the Aalto-1 case to achieve a smooth implementation.
