This paper focuses on the study and the design of an air core magnetorquer model dedicated to the 1U CubeSat (10×10×10 cm3). The objective is to obtain a solution which is able to provide accurate attitude control while having the smallest possible dimensions, electrical power, and total mass. To this end, the first part will provide theoretical mathematical knowledge on the laws of the coil to design an electromagnetic air core actuator. Then, this paper presents comparisons of the performances obtained by varying the type of material and the shape of the coil. Towards the end, the effect of temperature variation in LEO orbit is taken into consideration to predict the generated magnetic moment.
