Astrix 1090

Overview

Astrix 1000 provides the satellite AOCS with a three-axis measurement of the rotation with a very high reliability level, adapted to 15 years GEO mission in continuous operation. One compact box implements three gyros oriented on the three faces of a corner cube, and their relevant electronics. The use of 2 Astrix 1000 offers very simple and reliable redundancy architecture.

It is proposed as an option with 3 additional accelerometers as a full navigation capability, for deep space missions. Designed to operate within the radiation worst case environment, compatible with the environment of 15 years lifetime GEO Telecom missions. The EEE, opto-electronics and opto components are fully compliant to HiRel Telecom satellite standard (ECSS-QST-60 C class 1 or equivalent).
