Description

ADCS-10m is an integrated ADCS with a variable-speed, single-gimbal Control Moment Gyroscope (CMG) which is suitable for 3U CubeSats. It delivers the same performances compared to ADCSs designed for similar sizes of satellites but offers lighter weight, smaller volume, and less power consumption. Moreover, the user’s onboard computer (OBC) only has to input attitude quaternion as the reference command or set the system to autonomous mode.

Attitude determination and control algorithms embedded in the ADCS computer take care of all the commanding tasks to the ADCS components. This enables the user’s OBC to focus on the mission operation instead of calculating the complex system dynamics of the spacecraft. Also, autonomous modes can allow the satellite to track terrestrial objects or the sun simply by setting the states of the ADCS.

The system achieved flight heritage in 2022.
