Keeping tabs on the Earth and its environmental emergencies

UMBRAGROUP has applied its technological skills to designing the gyros for the new attitude control system of second-generation COSMO-SkyMed satellites. Promoted by the Italian Space Agency and the Ministry of Defense and Education, the satellite system provides 24/7 surveillance of the Earth in all weather conditions. The gyros are integrated with an electromechanical actuator, which supplies input for attitude control, and ensure the satellites rotate around their axis for a quick and precise alignment.


The latest generation UMBRAGROUP gyros allow you to:

  • Maintain the orientation of the telescope with absolute precision;
  • Guarantee the total reliability of the systems;
  • Provide lifetime lubrication without problems of corrosion and wear.
