MAUS (drw-nr: 114T000)


The MAUS is a  radiation hardened (>9Mrad) fine sun sensor especially developed for the CubeSat and small satellites market, taking advantage of the BiSon64-ET development experiences while keeping an focus on the special requirements for the smallest satellites.

The MAUS fulfills the wishes for a small but reliable sun sensor that can be easily accommodated on board of a CubeSat. Although the MAUS does not 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 this development.

The MAUS is the only known radiation hardened cubesat Sunsensor know to be commercially available and the bare diodes are acceptance tested to 4E14 1MeV electrons (>9Mrad)
