Attitude and Orbit Control Systems (AOCS) sensors

Our Portfolio comprises precise and robust sensors for state-of-the-art AOCS to ensure stable performance of satellites:

  • Star Sensors/Star Tracker (ASTRO product family)
  • Rendezvous- and Docking Sensors (product Family RVS)
  • Sun Sensors

with a broad application range from LEO to GEO orbit: communication, Navigation, Earth Observation, infrastructure and science

Up to today more than 450 AOCS sensors have been sold. We rely on a 915 years in orbit heritage with Star and Sun Sensors.

Used worldwide  within national and international Projects - multi purpose missions: Constellation – Earth Observation – Space Transportation – GEO Telecom – Deep Space and Science.

Spaceborne Instruments

With the development of the multi-spectral imagers for RapidEye Jena-Optronik successfully entered the market of satellite-based earth observation instruments.

The company is a member of the core teams of Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3, Sentinel-4 and Sentinel-5 within the European earth observation program COPERNICUS.

COPERNICUS continuously observing the global changes - contributions from Jena:

  • Star Tracker, electronics and optical filter for Sentinel-2 - objectives: land monitoring
  • Opto-mechanical structure, subsystems, telescope and scan systems of for Sentinel-3 - objectives: marine observation
  • Optics for Sentinel-4 - objectives: air quality monitoring
  • Optics and filter for Sentinel-5 - objectives: air quality monitoring
