APS sun sensor (line array) adopts the optical-electronic-mechanical-integration design, and consists of the light slit glass, the electronic circuit system, the mechanical structure and the software. The line-array APS is employed as the imaging device, which, under the N-shaped 3-slit light slit glass, directly obtains the two-axis attitude angles of the sun vector with respect to the body coordinate system of the sun sensor. Finally, the two-axis angle information is output by RS422 serial port.
