The iADCS200 matches the ST200 star tracker with RW210 series of reaction wheels, as well as the MTQ200 series of magnetorquers. Combined with Berlin Space Technologies’ flight-proven control algorithms, it offers an entirely autonomous attitude control system, in the space of 2 standard CubeSat PCB’s. With the help of the RW210 series of reaction wheels, it is capable of precisely pointing and slewing 1 to 4U CubeSats or platforms with similar moments of inertia. The iADCS200-1.5 uses the RW210-1.5 reaction wheel that produces a momentum 1.5 mNms per wheel.
It features a host of operating modes, chief among which is the target tracking mode, which allows users to enter latitude and longitude of a point on Earth, after which the system will orient a pre-defined instrument-side towards that target, following it until it has passed the local horizon.
The iADCS200 is also stack-through, allowing users to place it anywhere in their satellite.
