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.
The Orbital Team has leveraged the design experience of its mission computer/guidance electronic unit to develop a family of guidance technologies for spin and fin stabilized munitions ranging in size from 20mm to 250mm. These guidance electronics are optimized with key design features which include electronic placement for both gun launch survivability and minimal component cross-talk.
