ADCS100-Integrated ADCS with Reaction Sphere (Tensor Tech CO.,LTD)

Taiwan Space Show

CubeSat players used to build their satellites via contracting all design and integration jobs to a professional company or build the whole satellite by themselves with purchased components. However, the former method usually costs too much on budget; the latter cannot ensure the system’s reliability and costs too many development times.

As a result, Tensor Tech proposes this integrated ADCS solution (Attitude Determination & Control System) with affordable prices and user-friendly interfaces. By adopting this offer, customers don’t have to program the complicated attitude determination and control algorithms themselves but enjoy the quick integration process and instant customer support. 

Moreover, a variable-speed, single-gimbal control moment gyro (CMG) driven by spherical motor technology serves as the attitude actuator for this ADCS100. It is comparatively lighter and has less power consumption than traditional solutions.
