A computer program has been developed for the purpose of investigating cage instability in a despun antenna bearing. As a result of the experimental and analytical studies, a stability criterion is presented which relates stability to lubricant and cage properties. In general, it is shown that a cage in a bearing can be unstable regardless of the guiding surface provided the cage is not externally constrained and the ball-race tractions are very high.
