Our

Components

We offer a wide range of high-performance, low-recurring cost, and rapid-response spacecraft systems and components.

Attitude control systems
  • No matter the mission, the XACT is up to the task. Our integrated attitude control solution enables CubeSats to point with the absolute highest accuracy - much higher than that of previously available models.
