Mass Properties Measurement Services



Tensor Tech’s Mass Properties Measurement Services enable satellite integrators to work with an experienced partner in order to accurately tune Attitude Control and Determination Systems (ADCS).

The service can be provided using Tensor Tech's optional software that works with the company's Attitude Control Calibration & Experiment Platform air bearing platform.

Alternatively, satellite integrators or sub-system manufacturers can send hardware to Tensor Tech in order to conduct the measurements.

Tensor Tech's mass properties measurement services are dedicated to objects with a total mass of less than 20kg. Measurements are ascertained using spherical air bearing, inclinometer, and tactical grade gyroscope.


  • Total mass (measured separately), accuracy: +/- 5 mg
  • Position of the center of the mass, accuracy: +/- 0.1mm
  • Moment of inertia: +/- 2%
