Summary

The VEOWARE SPACE RW50 is a reaction wheel developed in collaboration with Space Inventor specifically designed for 12U - 16U platforms.

Reaction wheels are common attitude control systems used by satellites to provide three-axis control without the use of external applications of torque. They produce the required torque for repositioning/reorientation using the principle of angular momentum conservation of the contained flywheel.

Veoware also offers RW500, a solution for 35kg - 50kg satellites
