    A space-qualified, high reliability, 150 ft-lb rated torque rotary actuator is described. This drive is an integrated variable reluctance orbit motor-epicyclic transmission actuator. The performance goals were based on future control moment gyrotorquer applications and represent an advancement in the torque-to-weight ratio, backlash, inertia and response characteristics of electric rotary drives. The program accomplishments have been in two areas (1) the development of two high ratio (818:1) actuator configurations (breadboard and flightweight) and (2) the invention of a reliable proximity switch sensor system for self-commutation without use of optical or electrical brush techniques

    A space-qualified, high reliability, 150 ft-lb rated torque rotary acutator based on the Bendix Dynavector drive concept was developed. This drive is an integrated variable reluctance orbit motor-epicyclic transmission actuator.
