SS200 DATASHEET Product enquiry SS200 CAD MODEL

Digital Sun Sensor for CubeSats

Miniaturised digital sun sensor with high accuracy and 110 deg FOV

The SS200, developed by AAC Hyperion, is a small-size, light-weight and low power sun sensor for use in CubeSats.

The sampling rate can be adjusted by the customer to suit their needs, allowing the user to trade bandwidth against power consumption. The SS200 delivers 0.3 degree (1-sigma) accuracy in the +/-45 degree range, and is calibrated before delivery.

Compatibility

The SS200 can be seamlessly integrated with AAC Clyde Space’s line of integrated attitude determination and control systems to provide a fully integrated ADCS solution.

Adaptability

The sampling rate can be adjusted by the customer to suit their needs. The benefits are two-fold: higher sampling rates can be achieved when necessary at a temporary increase in power consumption, while when low sampling rates suffice, power consumption can be optimized.

Heritage

The SS200 sun sensors have been flying since 2018 and have been delivered to various clients worldwide.
