Abstract
The hybrid subsystem design could be an attractive approach for future spacecraft to cope with their demands. The idea of combining the conventional Attitude Control System and the Electrical Power System is presented in this article. The Combined Energy and Attitude Control System (CEACS) consisting of a double counter rotating flywheel assembly is investigated for small satellites in this article. Another hybrid system incorporating the conventional Attitude Control System into the Thermal Control System forming the Combined Attitude and Thermal Control System (CATCS) consisting of a "fluid wheel" and permanent magnets is also investigated for small satellites...
