To verify new ADCS algorithms we go a step further then pure numerical simulation. Our air bearing systems allow us to do end to end verification with hardware in the loop.

As with most of our test equipment we have built in house ADCS simulators for #cubesats all the way to mini satellites with more than 200kg mass. Our systems including three axis air bearing, Helmholtz Cage, Sun Simulator, Star Simulator and GPS simulator as well as the control software all designed and built by BST.

The picture shows our large air bearing table being prepared for a test in our lab in Berlin. Devices already placed on it are BST OBC-110EM, BST PCU-110EM, BST RWA-05EM and a lab battery, to make this a functional (one axis test setup) only the radio unit is missing.
