Attitude Determination and Control System

Prestige Space Systems offers an Attitude Determination and Control System based off of that used by the SIGMA CubeSat. With 4 coil and/or motor drivers it can accommodate a variety of control methodologies including momentum bias and magnetic control. It’s magnetometer, sun sensors and rate gyros give accurate attitude knowledge throughout an orbit. All relevant data is made available to the On Board Computer allowing prompt retrieval of telemetry via one of a variety of protocols (USART, SPI, CAN, etc.). Updates to the desired attitude and control mode can be given using the On Board Computer as well.

Custom cutouts will be provided where possible to accommodate wiring and equipment. Custom header pinouts are available to meet the specific needs of your CubeSat. If you have specific requirements that are not directly met here, we will be happy to discuss options to accommodate them.
