Rod magnetorquer RMTQ-15 is a single rod magnetorquer with 15 A-m2 of dipole moment that can be used as an attitude control actuator for microsatellite attitude pointing capabilities without moving parts.
Reaction wheel RXW-190 is a flywheel actuator with the maximum torque of 190 mN/m. For 3-axis stabilization, 4 reaction wheels are recommended, providing the spacecraft to aim at the desired attitude with pin-point accuracy.
Multi-layer insulation (MLI) is thermal insulation composed of multiple layers of thin sheets and is often used on spacecraft and Cryogenics. primarily intended to reduce heat loss by thermal radiation.
Attitude testbed service
mu Space’s Attitude Testbed ACTB-150 is a low-earth orbit microsatellite functional test system for any satellite developer to verify their attitude determination and control system design. The maximum satellite mass is up to 150 kg. The ACTB-150 consists of an air bearing system, Helmholtz cage, sun simulator, and software star simulator for interfacing the satellite’s attitude system.
