The project

The team develops a star tracker which is part of the ESMO AOCS. Its functional objective is to obtain attitude information by imaging and analyzing the star-field. The instrument shall use an included camera to take a picture of the star-field, then process the image before comparing it to an embedded star catalogue, which will enable it to determine the attitude of the satellite.

The sponsors

The Star Tracker team is sponsored by Fondation ISAE-SUPAERO.
