The Tensor Tech ADCS10 - Magnetorquer based integrated ADCS is an Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) suitable for 1U-3U CubeSats in LEO, utilizing a 3-axis magnetorquer.

Two modes are available, de-tumbling and rough pointing, and GNSS or TLE information is required to operate in rough pointing mode.

The video below is a presentation by Tensor Tech from the 2021 satsearch webinar: "a guide to selecting an ADCS for a small satellite mission". For more information about the webinar, and to see footage of the entire event, please click here
