Author(s): Jaroslav Chum; Jaroslav Vojta

Paper Abstract

A motivation to the development of the wide angle Digital Slit Sun Sensor, its main features and technical description are described in this article. The figures of the sensor, troubleshooting encountered during its development, and measured characteristics are presented as well. The difficulties in designing of very wide angle Sun sensor are discussed. It is shown, that if one is interested primary in the accuracy, it is better to construct the sensor with the field of view less then 90° (± 45°).
