Lens R&D is a Dutch SME specialized in high reliability Sunsensors for space applications.
Founded in 2012 the company has completed various ESA research and qualification contracts and is selling sensors with an unprecedented price to performance ratio.
The BiSon64-ET-B Sensors have a wide operating temperature range (-125°C..+125°C) and an integrated straylight baffle to minimize Earth Albedo errors. All analogue Sunsensors are build using dedicated radiation hardened photodiodes that have been tested to 10^16 1MeV electrons (equivalent to 240Mrad)
The latest development expected to lead to a demonstrator in 2020 is a small digital Sunsensor to be able to survive 15 years in GEO after electric orbit raising.
