Sun Sensors for Attitude Determination and Control

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.
