Canard Actuation System for Rockets and Space Vehicles

  • Actuation system for canard control surfaces

Canard Actuation System

The Canard Actuation System is a position controller for the canard control surfaces of rockets and space vehicles. This electro-mechanical actuation system with electronics must withstand enormous accelerations and temperatures, 80g and 900°C. It represents an entirely new concept in highly integrated compact electro-mechanical drives. The new galaxie gearbox technologies provide unprecedented torque and speed to the space industry. A system was developed for the SHEFEX II program conducted by the DLR (German Aerospace and Space Center) to investigate new re-entry technologies focusing on new heat shield designs for protection against high temperatures.

The experiment was successfully accomplished on June 22nd, 2012.
