Ground System Equipment
The STOS is a powerful star Tracker Optical Stimulator working like a mini-planetarium and enabling on-ground operations with a large variety of star sensors during AIT operations.
- When the STOS is locally controlled, it can be used to perform sensor characterization, robustness analysis or simply to check good health of the sensor.
- When it is remotely controlled in a real time closed loop environment, it is very useful to enable operating the complete spacecraft Attitude Control modes with real star sensor in the loop.
