CubeADCS bundles offer custom solutions for a variety of satellite requirements. The ADCS OBC can also serve as a main satellite OBC. Each bundle consists of an integrated stack of CubeSpace components with UART, I2C, and CAN interfaces to other satellite subsystems. High-level ADCS software libraries are also available on any CubeADCS bundle. The bundles are compact and have low power consumption.
