CubeSat AOCS pack

The CubeSat AOCS pack enables three-axis attitude control of CubeSats.

It is a product of SFL presenting high performance actuator and sensor package that draws directly from CanX-2 heritage and proven on-orbit performance. This suite of attitude sensors and actuators enables detumbling maneuvers, nadir pointing and three-axis inertial pointing while adhering to strict volume, mass and power constraints. The reaction wheels are smaller versions of the CanX-2 reaction wheel, developed in collaboration with Sinclair Interplanetary.
