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
There are two obstacles for commercial players to enter the space industry: rocket launching costs and satellite building costs. To tackle these problems, satellite miniaturization is the key. Achieving the same mission purpose but using less weight, volume, or power consumption, not only saves launch cost for custoemrs, but also enables more space for payloads.
However, the Attitude Control System (ACS) among all subsystems, tends to be the heaviest and the largest. For decades, the size of the ACS could not be reduced significantly due to physical limitations. Tensor Tech has developed proprietary spherical motor technology by replacing three motors with only one. Tensor Tech's device is reduced by 2/3rds compared with traditional systems with respect to mass, size, and power consumption. This invention might enable the space industry to tackle wider commercial applications by allowing a satellite mission with more power-intensive operations (less power wasted on the ACS) and capabilities of carrying more payloads.
Tensor Tech provides customers with a fullstack service for the ACS. From the mission design phase and delivering hardware, to integration support, the company is not only a key subsystem supplier and consulting team for customers, but also a close partner for the execution of projects.
Tensor Tech is an ISO9001:2015 certified company.
