Control Actuation Systems (CAS)

Orbital Research is developing  a low-cost control actuation system (CAS) with accompanying guidance electronics to prosecute stationary and moving targets.  The Orbital Team has devised a CAS  that features four (4) independently controlled deployable  canards which enable roll control, ideal glide configuration, and terminal maneuvers.  Our CAS design allows for range extension through drag reduction and more efficient trim performance.
