CMG 75-75S

Overview

A cost-effective solution for new-generation observation and science missions.

The demand for agile satellites has increased considerably over the last few years, be it for commercial or military applications, Earth observation, astronomy, optical instruments or radar payloads. And when it comes to providing a high output torque at reasonable mass, power consumption and cost, reaction wheels are no match for Control Moment Gyroscopes (CMGs). Airbus DS offers the CMG 75-75S (75Nms, 75 Nm Standard), a compact, high performance CMG with integrated micro-vibrations dampers optimized for large satellites (typically 3000 kg).
