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 [...]

MAMA, it’s only a tool, (but then again a very special one)

We are happy to announce that the Mechanical Automated Membrane Aligner or MAMA tool has been commissioned with good results.This tool (which in actual fact is a dedicated Sunsensor assembly robot) has demonstrated the capability to assemble Sunsensors with a unprecedented precision.In essence the tools functioning is very simple:- The operator loads a semi-assembled Sunsensor and a membrane.- The operator connects the Semi-assembled sensor to the readout electronics.- After closing the door, the tool picks up the membrane and suspends it above the semi-assembled sensor.- The A high stability Sun simulator is turned on and illuminates the semi assembled sensor.- [...]
