CubeStar GEN 2 Image

A medium to high accuracy star tracker designed for low power consumption, in a small form factor. The tracker outputs quaternions directly and has both “lost in space” and tracking modes. A variety of baffles can be screwed directly onto the baffle thread, making it easily customizable for any mission.

The main features of CubeStar include:

  • Flight-proven algorithms
  • M3 threaded mounting holes
  • Outputs full quaternions
  • Modular baffle thread for easy integration
  • Aluminium case with EMI filters
  • Common node designs with in-orbit re-programmability
