NanoSSOC-A60

Nano Sun Sensor on a Chip (nanoSSOC) is a two-axes and low cost sun sensor for high accurate sun-tracking, pointing and attitude determination. The device measures the incident angle of sun ray in two orthogonal axes, providing a high sensitivity based on the geometrical dimensions of the design.
NanoSSOC sun sensor is based on MEMS fabrication processes to achieve high integrated sensing structures. nanoSSOC-A60 has tiny size, low weight and low power consumption to be the perfect ADCS solution for nanosatellite platforms like Cubesats.

NanoSSOC-D60

Nano Sun Sensor on a Chip (nanoSSOC) is a two-axis low cost sun sensor for high accurate sun-tracking and attitude determination. This device measures the incident angle of a sun ray in both azimuth and elevation, providing an accurate angle reading. nanoSSOC-D60 includes a microcontroller that directly provides the sun light incident angles and other information useful for attitude determination, via UART, I2C or SPI protocol.
NanoSSOC-D60 has minimum size, weight and power consumption to be the perfect ADCS solution for nano-satellite platforms like Cubesats.

SSOC-A60

Sun Sensor on a Chip (SSoC), is based on MEMS fabrication processes to achieve highly integrated sensing structures for high accurate sun-tracking, positioning systems and attitude determination.
SSOC-A60 device measures the incident angle of a sun ray in two axes. The high sensitivity is based on geometrical dimensions of the design. The use of a metal shield and a cover glass in the optical eye minimizes the ageing of the device under high radiation levels.
