Satellite requires absolute attitude sensor to determine its orientation with respect to some known reference source like the Sun, the Earth, the Star, etc. There are different types of absolute attitude sensor like Sun Sensor, Earth Sensorand Star Sensor etc., which have different applications for different satellites. The Sun Sensor is one of the prime sensors for a satellite, which provides the spacecraft orientation with respect to Sun. There are different types of sun sensors available
