VEOWARE SPACE delivers solutions for satellite agility through Control Moment Gyro (CMG) and reaction wheel technology, improving manoeuvring time to collect more data. A control moment gyroscope (CMG) is an attitude control unit (actuator) consisting of a spinning rotor (also referred as a fly wheel) and one or more motorized gimbals that tilt the rotor’s angular momentum. As the rotor tilts, the changing angular momentum causes a gyroscopic torque that rotates the spacecraft.
Headquartered in Brussels, and founded in 2016, VEOWARE's first product is a Micro CMG, miniaturizing technology that has traditionally been adopted for larger satellites, to enable use for small satellites applications.
The VEOWARE team can provide mission analysis support, help define ACS requirements, simulate required attitude and propose a suitable ACS design to meet customer requirements.
