APS sun sensor (area array) adopts the optical-electronic-mechanical-integration design, and consists of the mask with dust cover, the electronic circuit system, the mechanical structure and the software. The area-array APS is employed as the imaging
device to directly obtain the two-axis attitude angles of the sun vector with respect to the body coordinate system of the sun sensor. The APS sun sensor exchanges date through the CAN bus with the integrated electronic sub-system. Application Domain and Model.
Adopted in ChangE lunar exploration project, this product is applicable to all kinds of spacecrafts.
