CANYVAL-X mission is developed for demonstrating a virtual telescope alignment system. The main objective of this mission is to build an inertial alignment of a virtual telescope with respect to the Sun during a few minutes by using two CubeSats, Tom(2U) and Jerry(1U). Inertial alignment is to maintain relative position and relative attitude of the two satellites with respect to the target object. For achieving the inertial alignment, a vision alignment system, relative position control with thruster, relative orbit determination with inter-satellite link system and satellite separation system need to be developed. This study presents an overview of the mission concept and configuration systems of Tom and Jerry.
