In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Honeywell-Powered Satellites Are More Effective And Efficient In Orbit
With an industry first of 100 million flight hours in space, Honeywell's Reaction Wheel Assemblies have 100 percent success rate

PHOENIX, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON) announced that its Reaction Wheel Assemblies (RWAs) for satellites, which are designed to control the momentum of satellites in orbit, have totaled more than 100 million flight hours. In the more than 40 years that Honeywell has created innovative products for satellites, such as RWAs, no Honeywell RWA has ever caused a satellite to fail or abort a mission.


Currently Honeywell has more than 1,100 RWAs in orbiting satellites with many satellites staying operational beyond their originally intended mission length due to Honeywell products.

What Is an RWA?

An RWA steers a satellite while in orbit, pointing it in the right direction and putting it in the right position. It is critical to every function a satellite performs, whether for civil and military communications, data transmission, or other purpose.

According to the Satellite Industry Association, government and civil communications satellites make up nearly 60 percent of the satellites in orbit.[1] Without proper momentum control, satellites are at risk of not performing properly, aborting their mission or potentially failing completely. Without the precise momentum control of Honeywell RMAs, consumers can lose access to phone, TV, Internet, mobile communications and other services provided by satellites.

In addition to Reaction Wheel Assemblies, Honeywell provides Control Moment Gyroscopes (CMGs) for applications requiring higher torque or more agility than is typically available from RWAs.

Honeywell Satellite Expertise

Honeywell has provided products and services, including RWAs, to satellite operators for more than 40 years. Satellite operators such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Ball Aerospace, the U.S. Department of Defense and numerous others use Honeywell RWAs to keep their satellites in orbit and functioning well beyond the initial scope of the mission.

Honeywell customers understand that by using Honeywell RWAs, satellites can stay functioning in space and on mission longer than expected, saving the time and resources needed to launch a new satellite or replace a failed one. With satellite missions often costing in the hundreds of millions of dollars, keeping satellites running longer with RWAs helps operators keep costs down.

Kurt Meister, Vice President of Space, Honeywell Aerospace

"Honeywell has been building RWAs for more than 40 years and in that time no Honeywell Reaction Wheel Assembly has ever failed to meet its mission life requirements. In fact, we have units designed to perform for 10 years that are still working 30 years later. Our RWAs provide superior performance in terms of size and power efficiency, and we assist our customers by modeling out vehicle control laws and control validation, making sure that everything continues to work long after the launch."
