Knowing the characteristics of the satellite before leaving earth!

Attitude Control System Testing Services

Any sensor and control system requires calibrations to reach its optimal performance, and ADCS is no exception. However, the equipment for people to create such an environment for testing is expensive and sophisticated. Besides, manpower is required to maintain devices and know-how is necessary to operate a precise experiment. Therefore, by adopting our experiences on ADCS development, we have launched this service to benefit satellite builders.

The simulation of a zero-gravity environment on earth for attitude control experiments is sophisticated. Furthermore, engineers usually don’t have equipment that has better precision than their ADCS when orbiting in space. Thus, control accuracies can never be validated. Here at Tensor Tech, we provide a platform with:

  • Spherical Air Bearing Platform to simulate 3 DOF motion in space
  • 3-axis magnetic cage to simulate the earth magnetic field in space
  • Sunlight source and darkroom to simulate sun in space

Using the above equipment, we will test our customer’s satellite attitude control system in a “hardware in the loop” and summarize a test report.

Mass Properties Measurement Services

Mass properties measurement for small satellites is crucial to correct the functioning of the attitude control system as well as increasing its response time. To fine-tune the parameters of the ADCS algorithm, information of total mass, the center of mass, and moment of inertia are necessary. Attitude control parameters can’t just rely on simulation data, but experimental measurements as well.

Tensor Tech’s mass properties measurement service is dedicated to objects’ weight from 0.5kg ~ 10kg. This measurement is based on a set of spherical air bearing, inclinometer, and tactical grade gyroscope. By delivering a test object to us, we will provide a test report with the following information about the satellite or any rigid body.

  • Total Mass (measured separately), accuracy: +/- 10 mg
  • Position of the center of the mass, accuracy: +/- 0.1mm
  • Moment of inertia: +/- 2%
