Attitude Control
Calibration & Experiment
Platform

For customers who are building their satellite attitude control system, a hardware-in-the-loop validation is critical. To simulate the space environment, Tensor Tech delivers this platform for your calibration and control testings. Moreover, by having optional software, a mass properties measurement could be done by this platform.

Attitude Control Calibration & Experiment Platform

Three space environmental conditions are simulated using this platform, “Sunlight,” “Earth magnetic field,” and “nearly-frictionless 3 degrees of freedom rotation.” The sunlight spectrum above the earth’s atmosphere is different from the sunlight on the ground. Therefore, we equip an AM0 Solar Simulator here with adjustable jigs. In addition, a 3-axis Helmholtz Cage is provided for canceling the local earth magnetic field and simulate the magnetic field on your targeted orbit. This equipment is helpful for magnetometer calibration or testing the performance of your magnetorquers. Finally, spherical air bearing provides a nearly frictionless environment for testing your attitude actuators; Processor and gyroscope onboard measure the real-time attitude of the platform for validating the performance of your ADCS.
