Tabletop Micro Air-bearing


Introduction To simulate the conditions of the space environment at ground the SRL was developed a tabletop Micro testbed. The Tabletop Testbed provide near-frictionless motion environment with 360-degree rotation about one axis (yaw rotation) about 35-degree around two other axis (Roll and Pitch). Tabletop Micro Air-Bearing has 2 main parts: 1. Platform with balancing mechanism 2. The hemispherical Air bearing with its support   The platform must be tall enough to place test equipments in the middle of it and provides a stable base. In order to create a balancing platform a 30 cm diameter circle [...]
