|There are six IR/Visible phototransistors on
board the picosatellite. Each phototransistor is placed on each face
of the 8" by 3" by 1" structure. The raw data from these phototransistors
are downloaded to the ground station where further manipulation is handled.
This will enhance the sensitivity of the onboard attitude determination
The data read from these photo-sensors are fed into an analog-to-digital converter within the microprocessor onboard. This, in turn, goes through the transmitter circuit and is transmitted via our antenna to a receiver at our ground station.
