myonic develops and manufactures super-precision bearings for the reaction wheels. Reaction wheels are used for controlling the attitude of satellites and spacecraft. There are minimum 3 reaction wheels per satellite controlling its attitude on the X, Y and Z axis.
If only one flywheel fails, the satellite would no longer be able to completely control its attitude and – in the worst case- compromise the mission. For this reason, the reaction wheels and thus the bearings units must correspond to the highest requirements of reliability and precision.
Our wealth of expertise makes myonic the perfect partner for reaction wheel development.
