ECSS-E-ST-60-20C Rev.1 – Star sensor terminology and performance specification (15 November 2008)

This Standard has been superseded by ECSS-E-ST-60-20C Rev.2 (15 May 2019)


This Standard specifies star tracker performances as part of a space project. The Standard covers all aspects of performances, including nomenclature, definitions, and performance metrics for the performance specification of star sensors.
The Standard focuses on performance specifications. Other specification types, for example mass and power, housekeeping data, TM/TC interface and data structures, are outside the scope of this Standard.
When viewed from the perspective of a specific project context, the requirements defined in this Standard should be tailored to match the genuine requirements of a particular profile and circumstances of a project.
This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
