Without accurate star trackers, a spacecraft would lose its way in space. Used in civil, commercial and defense satellite systems, Ball star trackers deliver the best performance in the industry. The star tracker we developed for NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory led to our High Accuracy Star Tracker, the highest accuracy of any star tracker ever flown on a space system.
For airborne, shipboard, and terrestrial applications, we also supply daylight star trackers to give you attitude and position knowledge when GPS is not available. Whatever your mission, we can quickly customize star trackers to your specs.
High performance day/night imaging comes in a variety of sizes and applications.
Cost-effective optical technologies that offer high value and high performance
A center of excellence for flight detectors, focal plane arrays & instruments
