Horizon sensor

CubeIR is an infrared horizon sensor that can provide reliable pitch and roll determination in both sunlight and in eclipse. It is the perfect sensor for low-resolution Earth observation or communication satellites requiring nadir-pointing or station tracking.

CubeIR determines the Earth vector with an accuracy of less than 1.5 degrees throughout the orbit. Its wide field of view provides improved measurement availability over existing solutions and simplifies your satellite design.
