The single axis High Power Solar Array Drive Assembly (SADA) is based on the Type 5 Rotary Incremental Actuator. This standard SADA meets up to 10 kilowatts of power transfer. The design is configured with a Harmonic Drive gear set driven by a Moog discrete permanent magnet stepper motor, potentiometer for position sensing and a high-power Twist Capsule assembly for power transfer.
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.
