High Accuracy Fine Sun Sensors

High Accuracy Fine Sun Sensors

Adcole Fine Sun Sensors are used in attitude control applications where sub-arcminute accuracy and millidegree angular resolution are required. Adcole Fine Sun Sensors are designed in single or two-axis configurations. Each sensor can be custom designed to meet specific performance requirements for Field of View (FOV), accuracy, resolution, and other key parameters.

Adcole Fine Sun Sensors have flown on more than 100 spacecraft; applications include high accuracy attitude determination, payload instrument pointing, and gyro updates.

Adcole Two-Axis Fine Sun Sensors have been deployed for over 25 years in a number of in-flight applications, including high accuracy attitude determination, instrument pointing, and gyro updates.
