100,000 Hours of On-Orbit CubeSat ADACS Operations

May 12, 2017

Maryland Aerospace, Inc. (now Adcole Maryland Aerospace) have attained over 100,000 cumulative hours of on-orbit CubeSat Attitude Determination And Control System (ADACS) operations. “We are pleased to have achieved such a momentous milestone in our ADACS program and want to thank our many customers worldwide for making this possible,” said Steve Fujikawa, AMA's Chief Technology Officer, “This operational achievement exemplifies the reliability and robustness of our products, especially relevant in the rapidly emerging CubeSat industry.”


Adcole Maryland Aerospace is the world leader in the manufacture of CubeSat ADACS, having delivered 131 flight units to academic, government, and industry customers all over the globe. Of these, at least 34 have flown with many more currently in the launch queue, and 17 that are actively operating on-orbit. This is more flight

heritage than any other supplier. 



The Space Sextant, a high precision CubeSat star tracker was introduced back in 2016. Sponsored by AFRL and NASA, the star tracker is capable of 0.015 degrees (or better) pointing knowledge as demonstrated in government tests. In addition to anticipating NewSpace industry needs with our ongoing product line improvements, Adcole Maryland Aerospace frequently accommodates customer-specific requirements, such as precision attitude determination and control for high-spin spacecraft or custom sensor locations.


This key operational milestone exemplifies the reliability and robustness of our products for the rapidly growing CubeSat industry.
