GomSpace has leading expertise in attitude and orbit control system design for nanosatellites and we have extensive flight heritage from our GOMX in-orbit technology demonstration program.
A good ADCS solution will point the payload at the target, and to meet requirements for mission critical services, a single-ADCS-box solution is often not adequate. We have the building blocks and expertise to put together a tailored high-performance and high-availability solution.
GomSpace can supply the following ADCS subsystems for your nanosatellite:
- Reaction wheel
- Coarse sun sensor
- Fine sun sensor
When it get's to propulsion GomSpace offer's cold gas propulsion systems compatible with the GomSpace ADCS system. This capability was flight proven in 2015 in a 3U configuration and will be flown in a 6U configuration in 2018.
The systems typically provide 8-13 m/s delta-V capability for both 3U and 6U platforms depending on configuration. The system provides both translational thrust capability and attitude control capability and takes up approximate 0.5U of height.
