NanoSSOC

Sun Sensor for Nano-Satellites

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.
