    NSS CubeSat Sun Sensor

    The CubeSat sun sensor determines the spacecraft body angles with respect to the sun. The sensor is extremely small and light to minimise the demands on nano-spacecraft. The sensor achieves much higher measurement accuracy than traditional photodiode cosine sensors.

    Main Features


    • Accurate determination of sun-angle

    • Six sensors can achieve full sky coverage

    • Used in conjunction with a magnetometer for simple attitude control

    • Can be used as safe-mode sensors on gyro or star-mapper controlled systems

    Testing & Heritage:

    • More than 100 CubeSat Sun Sensor have been delivered to a multitude of international programmes.
