An on-board reaction wheel is payload of small satellite for space environment test. The reaction wheel is designed for considering physical, electrical, and environmental requirements. In this paper, we report design, manufacturing process and operation performance verification. Furthermore, the specifications of environmental test are performed under environmental conditions for guarantee of stability and reliability. The operation and environment test results are presented to meet the requirements at the reaction wheel flight model.
