Nano Sun Sensor on a Chip (nanoSSOC) is a two-axis low cost sun sensor for high accurate sun-tracking and attitude determination. This device measures the incident angle of a sun ray in both azimuth and elevation, providing an accurate angle reading. nanoSSOC-D60 includes a microcontroller that directly provides the sun light incident angles and other information useful for attitude determination, via UART, I2C or SPI protocol. NanoSSOC-D60 has minimum size, weight and power consumption to be the perfect ADCS solution for nano-satellite platforms like Cubesats.
