The Tensor Tech ADCS-MTQ has been tailored for simple nanosatellite missions with limited power budget and volume constraints. It includes FSS-15M (fine sun sensor with triaxial magnetometer) for attitude determination and a triaxial magnetorquer for attitude control. Its embedded control modes include magnetic dipole moment control, sun-tracking, and de-tumbling.

Five optional FSS-15 fine sun sensors can also be provided to achieve optimal performance. The ADCS-MTQ can be purchased as an integrated solution or as standalone components for users who desire to customize their own ADCS system.

Support software is provided for the user to set up and calibrate the system.

Key features

  • Optional GNSS receiver
  • Control modes: sun-tracking, de-tumbling, and magnetic dipole moment control
  • Comprehensive software support and free technical support
