Reaction Wheel Flight Heritage

MSCIís MicroWheel 200 and MicroWheel 1000 reaction wheels have consistently demonstrated an outstanding flight heritage on their respective missions.

To date, MSCI has sold over hundred Reaction Wheels to many customers worldwide. Of those Reaction Wheels, many have been launched and are operational in orbit, with over 216 years of accumulated flight heritage (as of April 2017) and 170 billion revolutions.

MOSTís extraordinary flight heritage Ė still producing outstanding results 11 years longer than expected Ė provided the credibility of our microsatellite design, resulting in the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) awarding MSCI the contract to design and build the NEOSSat microsatellite that was launched in 2013.

With the selection of MSCIís reaction wheels as the attitude control system of MSCI's standardized microsatellite bus architecture, as the baseline for CSAís microsatellite programs going forward, MSCI is positioned as the premier Canadian provider of reaction wheel attitude control systems.
