ISISPACE selects Lens R&D to deliver sun sensors for nano satellite platforms

SpaceTechExpo EU, 2019, Bremen, 21 November 2019 – Dutch CubeSat systems integrator ISIS – Innovative Solutions in Space (“ISISpace”) selected LENS R&D to provide them with their latest MAUS sun sensor product for their latest generation of nanosatellite platforms. As a result of the close collaboration between ISISpace and LENS R&D, the new MAUS sun sensors are more optimized for use in the limited space available in nanosatellites, without compromising on the quality and robustness of the earlier LENS R&D products. ISISpace, one of the leading suppliers of CubeSat mission solutions, is providing complete satellite missions, satellites and services for [...]

The MAUS is on it’s way to SPACE

Less than 3 Months after market introduction in Utah, a frame contract for the delivery of 24 units has been signed with Innovative Solutions In Space (Delft,NL) The MAUS fulfills their wishes for a small but reliable sun sensor that can be easily accommodated on board of a cubesat. Although the MAUS doesn't have the highest functionality of all cubesat sun sensors, the guaranteed accuracy, high radiation tolerance and Lens R&D reputation for quality have been important for the selection. Currently we are discussing with other potential customers as well to see if we can help them establishing a very [...]

The MAUS is on it’s way to Utah

A MAUS that doesn't eat into your budget is coming. Today we assembled a demonstration unit of our new MAUS Sunsensor for nano-satellite applications. Just in time for the 2019 small satellite conference starting in Logan (Utah) next Saturday. As the MAUS uses the same photodiodes as our BiSon Sunsensors the sensors are extremely radiation tolerant (>200Mrad tested) and able to survive any radiation environment any smallsat would need to survive ever. Taking the typical cubesat approach  of not going through an extensive qualification process,(being convinced of the quality), we can offer them much more cost effectively than the BiSon [...]
