The BiSon64-ET is a fine sun sensor for high reliable satellites applications and qualified within ESA development activities. The sun sensor is designed for missions with demanding lifetime, radiation, thermal and mechanical requirements and can be used in LEO, MEO, GEO and beyond.
The Single Sampler is a dedicated EGSE especially designed for BiSon sun sensors. It contains an integrated variable transimpedance amplifier with a USB output. The sampler is delivered with a Python script to be easily integrated with other laboratory software.
The MAUS is a radiation hardened (>10Mrad) fine sun sensor especially developed for the CubeSat market. Taking advantage of the BiSon64-ET developments while keeping a focus on the special requirements for the smallest satellites, the MAUS is combining high reliability Sun sensing with a very low profile.
