Research overview:
In many observations among scientific observations, the observation equipment needs to be directed toward a specific azimuth direction. This year, the control method using reaction wheel has been developed for azimuth control of lightweight observation equipment. The developed control system was mounted on BT5-21 released on September 21, 2002 and the observation equipment was controlled to track the direction of the sun at sunset to obtain very good result. As a result, the way to the practical application to the lightweight gondola could be seen.
