Contract: FA9453-10-M-0165
Award Amount: $99,621.00
 

Abstract:

Small spacecraft, particularly CubeSat nanosatellites, are gaining increasing attention as a potential cost-effective platforms for rapid validation of new technologies, work force development and even missions of military or intelligence utility if a higher degree of agility can be achieved. To increase CubeSat agility, Honeybee is seeking to develop a modular miniature control moment gyroscope (CMG) technology. The proposed effort focuses on developing a flexible, PnP-compatible CMG Steering Law Controller (SLC). BENEFIT: According to recent studies, improving CubeSat agility will significantly increase their utility by enhancing data collection, power collection and communication. The proposed new technology will benefit CubeSat users seeking to validate new technology, educate and train personnel or students and even execute missions of science and military utility.
