About MSCI
Flight Heritage

Since 2002, MSCIís microsatellites and MicroWheels (reaction wheels) have consistently demonstrated an outstanding flight heritage on their respective missions.

To date, MSCI has sold over hundred Reaction Wheels to many customers worldwide. Of those Reaction Wheels, many have been launched and are operational in orbit, with over 216 years of accumulated flight heritage (as of April 2017) and 170 billion revolutions.

MOSTís extraordinary flight heritage Ė still producing outstanding results 11 years longer than expected Ė provided the credibility of our microsatellite design, resulting in the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) awarding MSCI the contract to design and build the NEOSSat microsatellite that was launched in 2013.

MOSTís innovative design provided the blueprint upon which MSCIís cost-effective, Multi-Mission Microsatellite Buses (MMMB) are based. With the selection of MSCIís MMMB design as the baseline for CSAís microsatellite programs going forward, MSCI is positioned as the premier Canadian provider of microsatellites.
