International Orbital Astrophysics Observatory "Spectr-UV"

Destination Study of the Universe within UV-range of 100-200 nm inpenetrable for observing by ground-based instruments
Launch date 2014
Mission duration 2014–2019
Onboard instruments developed at the Optico-physical department System of Guidance Sensors (SDG) for the T-170 UV Telescope, including:
  • - three guidance sensors
  • - data processing module
Comments Guidace sensors are placed in the T-170 telescope's focal area and are capable to observe through its optical system the stars with a magnitude of 15-17. Data obtained by the guidance sensors is tranferred to data processing unit, where it is processed for determining telescope attitude in the inertial space
