With patented magnetic field design and control methodology, this device is capable of providing angular momentum and magnetic dipole in 3 axes. This brings your satellite ADCS same performance but one-third of the weight, volume, and power consumption compared to the traditional system.
Unlike traditional single-axis reaction wheel motor, 1 spherical motor is capable of providing angular momentum in 3 axes. In addition, by applying bias currents, it acts as 3 single-axis magnetorquers as well. In terms of rotational dynamics, it is actually a control moment gyro. While the algorithms including: (1) De-tumbling (2) Attitude Sensor Calibration (3) Attitude Determination to (4) 3-axis Pointing Control are all embedded in our controller, all you need to do is giving attitude command from satellite OBC via I2C or UART in a standard PC104 port.
