Lens R&D's MAUS is a fine sun sensor, especially developed for the CubeSat and small satellites market, taking advantage of the BiSon64-ET development experiences, while maintaining focus on the special requirements for small satellites.

The sensor is designed to combine a high radiation tolerance, as needed for interplanetary missions (tested to be > 9Mrad), with the low profile required for efficient mounting on CubeSats.
