Development of a new reaction wheel using up-to-date technologies

ESA Programme/Project 40000115203/15/NL/CBI

The main technical objective of this project is to perform a preliminary conception of a reaction wheel that will take maximum benefit of new technologies, and to establish a detailed development plan for such product.

Using Icpe and TAS experiences to widely re-open the trade-offs driving an optimized wheel concept may lead to a very interesting solution that could satisfy most of the market needs. Many of the existing wheels designs are based on relatively old concepts and it is the right time to readdress the concept versus the today needs.

The project runs from 2015 to 2017.
