ADCS-R3 FULL ENCLOSURE
The ADCS-R3 is an integrated attitude control solution for 2-6 kg satellites. It includes four momentum wheels in tetrahedron configuration, three magnetorquer rods, gyro, accelerometer and ADCS computer in a very compact and rugged package. It is designed to operate with external attitude sensors connected via CAN bus such as sun sensors, star trackers and others.
The ADCS-R3 uses four WHL-10 momentum wheels operating in momentum bias to provide very fine three-axis attitude control with a high degree of stability and long term durability. The wheels are placed in a tetrahedron configuration, which allows full control without ever reversing the spin direction of any wheel. In case of failure of one wheel, the three others can be reconfigured to maintain full control as the expense of slightly degraded performance. The system also includes three magnetorquer rods wound on ultra high permeability material resulting in a high efficiency.
