Fine Spinning Sun Sensor (±64°)
The Fine Spinning Adcole Sun Sensor provides better accuracy and resolution than the Miniature Spinning Sun Sensor.
It is a redundant system consisting of one optical head per redundant electronics channel. It is used for attitude determination of spinning spacecraft, sun acquisition, and fail-safe recovery.
