The simulation of a zero-gravity environment on earth for attitude control experiments is sophisticated. Tensor Tech provides a platform to test satellites' attitude control system in a "hardware in the loop" setup, which encompasses:
- Spherical Air Bearing Platform to simulate 3DOF motion in space
- 3-axis magnetic cage to simulate earth magnetic field in space
- Sunlight source and darkroom to simulate sun in space
