Tensor Tech's ADCS100 is a integrated Reaction Sphere ADCS for CubeSats ranging from 1.5U, 2U, 3U, to 6U. This sub-system combines 6 FSS100, 1 RS100, and a tactical grade gyroscope, to provide a pointing accuracy up to 0.2 deg when the sun is capturable and 1 deg when it is not. A GPS module can increase the attitude determination better.
Hardware Included with ADCS 100:
One Reaction Sphere can achieve same function in 1/3 volume, cost, weight and, power consumption. Tensor Tech's RS100 is a Reaction Sphere designed for CubeSats ranging from 1.5U, 2U, 3U, to 6U. This motor functioning like a Single-Gimbal Control Moment Gyro in terms of rotational dynamics; and actuated by spherical motor technology. With this device, you can control the orientation of your CubeSat like 3 or 4 traditional single-axis reaction wheel did. However, the weight, size, and power consumption is lower.
