What is a star tracker?
A star tracker is a system which is made up of cameras and a complex electronics and software unit, which enable a satellite or space vehicle to know its orientation. Our star trackers are therefore the “guides” for satellites which operate in the Earth’s orbit or which explore our solar system.
How Sodern enables missions that benefit to all of us on Earth
For a sustainable and committed space
At Sodern, we defend a sustainable vision of space.
We believe in a use of space sector which does not generate any debris or pollution in space, in order to preserve the Earth’s orbit for future generations.
We believe in a space which works for citizens’ essential concerns: provide useful services on a daily basis, study the climate, advance science, strengthen national sovereignty and more.
Sodern is a member of the SpacEarth initiative, a coalition of European space industry companies, who share the same values and implement them on a daily basis.
