Abstract:What is disclosed is a clutch driven reaction wheel steering unit having at least a single drive motor (101) coupled indirectly to a plurality of flywheels operable to provide momentum for all three axes in a single unit. In an exemplary embodiment, the drive motor (101) is mounted within a unit frame (203). A plurality of gears, including miter gears, are coupled directly or indirectly to the drive motor (101). Six flywheels (102A, 102B, 102C, 102D, 102E and 102F) are coupled to the ends of a plurality of shafts which extend through or are supposed by the unit frame (203). Clutches are operable to selectively transmit rotational motion to the second plurality of shafts.
