Micro LabSat is a 50kg-class microsatellite developed by JAXA (formerly NASDA). It was launched on December 14, 2002 by an H-IIA launch vehicle. The Attitude Control Subsystem (ACS) must provide sufficient attitude control capabilities required to carry out several technology demonstration experiments, such as on-orbit inspection experiments using onboard CMOS cameras, CCD Earth Sensor Assembly (CCDESA) experiments, and so on. Since the launch, the ACS has functioned normally. This paper describes the on-orbit operation and performance of the Micro LabSat ACS.
