Our successful projects

Zyra Reaction wheel

Zyra Reaction Wheel

The Zyra reaction wheel is a compact, low microvibrations reaction wheel for CubeSats up to 12U. The wheel is equiped with custom drive electronics and internal speed control to offer high rotational speed accuracy and stability. The wheel is radiation shielded and is offered with its mounting on 3 different planes for flexible integration.

Twinkle Star Tracker

The Twinkle star tracker offers extremely high attitude determination accuracy in a component the size of a matchbox car. The volume, mass and power budgets allow to easily incorporate a set of sensors in the spacecraft, leading to high availability and accuracy.


Sagitta Star Tracker

The Sagitta star tracker offers arc second range pointing accuracy to your CubeSat. The custom algorithms are optimized for accuracy, robustness and low computational cost. The star tracker has a built-in baffle to reduce the effect of stray light. The system is compact and easy to interface in CubeSats and large satellites.
