NASA engineers are developing a precision attitude sensor or star tracker that would be able to locate stars during daylight hours.
The team at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility (WFF), located on Virginia's Eastern Shore, is working on a low-cost, off-the-shelf solution to overcome the challenges of collecting data in daylight.The star tracker is being developed specifically for the Wallops Arc Second Pointer (WASP) which would use the star tracker's data to point a balloon-borne scientific payload with incredible accuracy and stability.
