The Ultra Performance Type 3 (UPT3) Actuator and UPT3G Biaxial Gimbal are designed to implement features, improvements and technology enhancements accumulated from over 40 years of experience in producing pointing and actuating mechanisms for the space industry. The UPT3 Actuator is a closely integrated package that utilizes all available space to significantly increase performance and reliability. While design and performance margins are elevated with the introduction of this actuator, key interface envelope dimensions of the Moog heritage Type 3 are preserved to facilitate interchangeability.
Moog is a proven leader in components, subsystems, and systems for spacecraft of all sizes, from smallsats to GEO spacecraft. Moog has been successfully providing spacecraft controls, inspace propulsion, and major subsystems for science, military, and commercial operations for more than 60 years.
